The Clash kick-off confirmed for 14.00

1 September 2016

Bath Rugby is pleased to confirm that the kick-off time for ‘The Clash’, which sees the Club take on fierce rivals Leicester Tigers in one of the biggest sporting and entertainment events of 2017, will be 14.00 at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 8th April.

The 14.00 kick-off will allow supporters to make the most of the entertainment on offer both before and after the match, with a festival of entertainment for all the family in store.

“We’re really pleased that we can confirm the 14.00 kick-off time,” said Tarquin McDonald, Managing Director of Bath Rugby. “We have a whole host of entertainment planned for the day at Twickenham, before and after the whistle, so having this mid-afternoon kick-off time allows supporters of all ages to make the most of the day, including getting to and from the stadium, and really enjoy their experience of Bath Rugby at Twickenham. It’s going to be a special occasion for Bath Rugby, so we want to make sure as many of our supporters as possible can make it to the home of English rugby for ‘The Clash’.”

For the convenience of supporters travelling to Twickenham from the Bath area, the Club has organised return coaches from two locations – Bath City Centre and Chippenham RFC. A place on either coach costs just £23 return, with free parking available at Chippenham RFC. Full details of the travel options available to supporters are available here.

Adjoining the stadium on matchday, ‘The Forum’ – a three-zoned mini-city – will bring the Best of Bath to Twickenham, with a feast of food and drink, stage acts, the opportunity to meet Bath Rugby players past and present, the ‘Tunnel of Noise’ on a grander scale and much, much more. Within the stadium itself, a pre-match show featuring music and pyrotechnics will build as the players enter the arena for the onset of what promises to be one of the biggest rugby clashes of the season.

Bath and Leicester both boast some of the leading players in the international game, both from England and across the globe, and the chance to watch them go head-to-head at a world-class venue is a mouth-watering prospect.
