The advance ticket purchase price for Cornish Pirates’ group home matches in this season’s new ‘The Championship Cup’ competition is just £10.
Cup matches are ‘All Pay’, 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.
The fixtures are against Bedford Blues on Sunday 11th November, Hartpury RFC on Sunday 25th November, and London Irish on Sunday 16th December. All matches kick-off at 2.30pm. Ticket sales are already going well for these matches, with hospitality for the London Irish game already full. Some supporters missed the pre-season game against Exeter Chiefs because it was a sell-out, so the advice is to purchase both match ticket needs and hospitality as soon as possible.
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.
If interested in Match Day Hospitality, please call Robyn on 01736-335318 or alternatively email [email protected]. For awareness, hospitality for the game against London Sottish on the 30th December is already near to capacity.
For the one game mentioned above, to be played against Bedford Blues on Remembrance Sunday, which this year marks 100 years since the end of WW1, there is also a special discount admission price for personnel serving in the Armed Forces, the Fire and Ambulance Services, the Police, plus Doctors, Nurses, the RNLI and the Coastguard Service. For any queries in advance, please email [email protected]
Admission to individuals wearing their uniform and/or displaying their ‘ID’ card, can on the day purchase a £5 terrace ticket at Gate 4, which is situated in the clubhouse corner of the ground. Entry, as previously mentioned above, will be space permitting.
For awareness, the gates at the Mennaye Field will be open at 12.30pm and just ahead of the 2.30pm kick-off there will be a minute’s silence. There will also be a collection on the day for the Royal British Legion.
Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”. It is held on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November, Armistice Day, the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11am in 1918.
The partnership between the Cornish Pirates and The Movement Project (TMP) based at Penryn RFC continues to grow.
A latest squad member signed by the Cornish Pirates on a one-year contract is gifted young Australian forward Hugh Bokenham.
The Cornish Pirates can confirm that young hooker Oli Burrows, who is a former Wales under 18s and under 20s player, has arrived at the Mennaye Field on loan from Exeter Chiefs.
Of no surprise this Friday is a big night for the Cornish Pirates – a first ever Premiership Rugby Cup game for the club against the might of Bath Rugby. The kick-off is at 7.30pm and the gates will be open from 5.30pm.
