Cornish Pirates’ home matches in the Cup are ‘All Pay’, however as previously announced the advance ticket purchase price for the pool games in this season’s new Championship Cup competition is just £10 – sit or stand anywhere on a first come first served basis.
This favourable £10 ticket price for Adults and concessions provides an opportunity for supporters to watch a high-class level of rugby and in a new competition, so the opportunity is clearly one not to be missed.
Advance tickets can be purchased on-line at http://cornish-pirates.com/tickets/ or from the club’s ticket office, open Monday to Friday from 9am to 12 noon.
Entry on the day (space still permitting) will be £15 and £1 for children under 16.
Following the pool stage, the quarter-finals are scheduled to be played on the weekend 1-3 February, the semi-finals on the weekend 22-24 February, and the final on Saturday the 4th May.
Regarding this update, Cornish Pirates’ COO Robin James has commented:
We firstly apologise to any supporters inconvenienced by the change from the Sunday to the Saturday for our Cup game in December versus London Irish, which is in line with regulations.
This is a new competition in which we will be keen to do well, starting against the respected Bedford Blues. As ever, the ‘16th man’ support from our fans can help our cause – and is always appreciated.
Please note- if you are booked into hospitality on this fixture, Robyn will be in touch.
