The fixtures concerned are the one versus Ealing Trailfinders – originally scheduled to be played on Sunday 17th February but now to be played on Saturday 16th February and the one versus London Irish originally scheduled to be played on Sunday 31st March but now to be played on Saturday 30th March. Both kick-off times remain as 2.30pm.
Cornish Pirates’ COO Robin James commented:
We take feedback from our fans very seriously therefore we have decided to change two of our home games to Saturday fixtures instead of Sunday fixtures. Both are very big games for us and we are aiming to maximise attendance. with an eye also at looking to the future when we will be playing in the stadium.
Ahead of ultimately playing in the new stadium, immediate supporter consideration also presently sees us redeveloping the old Western National corner – the Naught Boys corner – of the Mennaye Field ground, where a food and beverage facility is being installed. This will alleviate queues around the main food area and help provide a quicker service.
