All the Latest News & Fixtures...
With reference to this coming Sunday’s Round 3 game in the Championship Cup versus Ampthill (ko 2.30pm), please note the following:
General information to note:
Tickets – Tickets for what promises to be another closely fought and entertaining match will be available at the gates on the day (open 12.30pm), whilst in the meantime they can also be purchased on-line. For further ticket information please visit: www.cornish-pirates.com/tickets
(NOTE – For season ticket holders the match is included in their booklet – voucher A!)
Hall for Cornwall’s ‘Treasure Island’ – This Sunday’s match day sponsor is the Hall for Cornwall, who throughout December will be staging ‘Treasure Island’. Cornish Pirates players switched rugby boots for stage attire as they joined the cast on stage during a dress rehearsal earlier this week, whilst cast members will also be present at the Mennaye Field on Sunday. No doubt, Ed Rowe (Kernow King, and Long John Silver for this production) will be keen to meet up with similarly clad supporters of the Cornish Pirates, including the club’s very own mascot – Captain Benbow!
Match Programme – Supporters wishing to access the digital match programme can do so either via the social media link 3 hours before kick-off or via the QR Code located at various points around the ground.
Growing Links – Again this week and for future match days, supporters will have the opportunity to donate food items to this important local charity who do incredible work in West Cornwall. Supporters who feel they can help with donations are asked to bring along tinned and non-perishable goods to the designated drop-off area by the clubhouse corner of the ground from 12.30 – 2.30pm.
Reusable Cups in Support of The RNLI – Help us to proudly support the RNLI. Supporters don’t have to purchase a reusable non-refundable pint ‘cup’, which costs £1 only from the marquee. However, if you do then 100% of ALL proceeds go towards helping save lives at sea
The Pirates Shop – Remembering that Christmas is only a few weeks away, there are a variety of exciting new items available for sale from the on-ground shop, which will be open from early afternoon (including during and after the match), when purchases can be made by CARD ONLY – No cash. At other times merchandise can be purchased via the online shop link: https://cornish-pirates.com/shop/
Hospitality – Hospitality numbers were very encouraging last season, with most games sold out. To avoid disappointment in the coming League & Cup season, please book early by contacting our Hospitality & Events Coordinator, Liz McLean – email [email protected]
Match Day Sponsorship & Match Ball Sponsorship – To be either a Match Day or Match Ball sponsor, Liz is also the contact.
Supporter importance – As we have highlighted in the past, our support at the Mennaye Field helps tremendously when everyone gets behind the team. Outstanding on so many occasions, it is our sixteenth man – so more of the same please throughout 2022/23, as it really can make a difference!
Live-Streaming – Finally, for those unfortunately unable to make the match, please note it is being live-streamed. ‘Tickets’, priced £7 only, are available to purchase via: https://www.247.tv/champsrugby
Enjoy the game!
