Watch Wasps Double Header at Ricoh Arena
Date: 3 Oct 2018
Wasps fans are in for an early Halloween treat later this month as the Ricoh Arena gets set to host a double header of rugby action on Saturday 20 October.
Fans will be able to watch Wasps vs Bath Rugby in European Champions Cup action at 3.15pm before Wasps FC Ladies take on Richmond Women at 5.45pm in the Tyrrells Premier 15s.
We’re looking to break the attendance record for a women’s domestic game (4542) and are urging supporters to get behind our women’s team as well as the men’s, in what promises to be a jam-packed, exciting heritage day at the Ricoh Arena as we celebrate over 150 years of Wasps Rugby.
Both Dai Young’s side and the ladies’ team sit in third position in their respective tables as both aim to secure a place in the play-offs come the end of the season.
Mark Rigby, Wasps President and former Club Captain, said: “Both matches will give the whole Wasps family a wonderful opportunity to come together and celebrate our great heritage which now spans over 150 years.
“Whichever part you are of the Wasps family, the day will offer a tremendous chance to enjoy some great rugby as well as reminisce with old friends. It will also offer our most recent local fans and supporters the chance to rub shoulders with some of the stars of yesteryear.
“Once a Wasp always a Wasp!”
Giselle Mather, Wasps FC Ladies Director of Rugby, said: “The opportunity to play at the Ricoh Arena in our first double header with our male counterparts is another huge step forward for the women’s game and for women’s sport in general.
“To bring all the Wasps family together, from the supporters to the legends through to Wasps FC's U6s on this Wasps Heritage Day, to cheer on two highly competitive sides at the top of their game, is a special day in the black-and-gold history.
“Our players are enormously excited to perform on such a stage and are hoping for huge support following the Wasps v Bath game from the black-and-gold faithful. We look forward to seeing you there.”
Come and play your part at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday 20 October as we look to roar both teams to victory!
