Your Guide to the Rec - Leicester Tigers

24 January 2020

The Blue, Black and White welcome their oldest rivals Leicester Tigers on Saturday afternoon. Here is what we have going on at the Rec during the Gallagher Premiership Round 9 clash with the midlands outfit. 

PRE-MATCH

Make sure you head to the Rec early to get your programme signed at our player signing session in the Swift Half 13:30-14:30. 

Player Q&A - The session will take place in a marquee on the outfield at the Recreation Ground at 14:00, with Bath Rugby Chief Executive - Tarquin McDonald, Senior Squad player - Henry Thomas and Pathway Coach - Ryan Davis will be answering your questions and giving insights into the next half of the season. A first come, first served and one in, one out policy will be in place due to capacity restrictions. To gain entry, you will be asked to show your season ticket card on the door.

CASH-FREE

Having been phased in at the end of the 2018/19 season, all Bath Rugby bars and concession stands on the outfield will no longer accept cash payments.

The move to cash-free is designed to speed up transactions and reduce queuing times to ensure that supporters have less time away from the game.

The Rec will be able to process all major contactless debit and credit card, with chip and pin applying to all purchases over £30. Bars and food outlets will also accept Google Pay and Apple Pay. Make your experience even quicker by downloading the Tap and Go app available to download on Apple and Android. Search “Tap and Go at Bath Rugby”. 

FOOD

There are a number of food vendors available at the Rec, including Mac & Cheese, The Best Brownie Company and Fish and Chips. There is a new vegan stand ‘Have a pinch,’ so make sure you take advantage of the many options available to you ahead of kick-off.

HALF-TIME

Our Super Six Kicks challenge returns at half-time. 12-year-old Jonty is still top of the leaderboard, do you have what it takes to knock him off top spot? If you do please email marketing@bathrugby.com if you have what it takes!

REUSABLE BOTTLES

Bath Rugby is working towards being singleuse plastic free on a matchday. As part of this commitment, bars and concessions will no longer be selling plastic bottles. There are refill stations located in the four corners of the ground to refill your bottes at the Rec. Bath Rugby branded reusable bottles will be sold at every bar at the Rec for £5.
