Posted by Editor on August 12, 2021 09:56 AM | No comments | Print | E-mail author

Glasgow Warriors will host supporters at Scotstoun for the first time since February 2020 this September, as the club welcomes Newcastle Falcons in The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Challenge.

The match takes place on Friday 3 September, with kick-off at 7.00pm that evening.

This will be first time the Warrior Nation will be able to support the club in person for 18 months. The green light for returning to crowds has been given by the Scottish Government, Scottish Rugby and Glasgow Life.

Tickets for the match will be made available to Season Ticket Members from Monday 16 August. They will then go on sale to Warrior Nation Members, subject to availability, on Thursday 19 August.

Glasgow Warriors' Managing Director, Alastair Kellock, said: "We are delighted to be able to welcome back supporters to Scotstoun for the first time since the pandemic began. Thank you to Scottish Rugby and Glasgow Life for their support in making this return to crowds possible and to the staff team who will now make it a reality.

"Our Members have shown their dedication to the club throughout this difficult period and we're pleased to offer them a reduction on their tickets for this match, having not being able to include it in their package.

"I can't wait until we are back together again. I look forward to getting behind the team with every one of you and helping the players begin their season on a high. Reaching this point and having the special atmosphere our fans create will certainly make it a night worth celebrating."

Season Ticket Member Information

This game will not be played in front of a full capacity crowd as the East and West Stand will not be in situ due to athletics events still taking place at Scotstoun Stadium. As the club can't guarantee all Season Ticket Members can attend this fixture at a reduced capacity, the fixture won't be part of the membership package.

Season Ticket Members will have first access to buy a match ticket in a pre-sale window from 10.00am on Monday 16 August. As a Season Ticket Member benefit, purchasers can buy a match ticket at a discounted price during the pre-sale window.

Subject to availability, 2021/22 Warrior Nation Members will get second access to buy up to two tickets in a pre-sale window on Thursday 19 August (10.00am), thereafter any tickets left will go on public sale on Friday 20 August (10.00am).

Match tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Due to the limited capacity, there is no guarantee the pre-sale window for Warrior Nation Members or public sale will open in the result of a sell out during the Season Ticket Member pre-sale window.
