I would like to thank you for your continued support of club rugby in England. You have contributed hugely to the on-going success of Aviva Premiership Rugby which has become one of the biggest and best supported domestic competitions in the world.
Last year we spoke to many season ticket holders across the country and they told us that they expected to be able to access the best seats for the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final before anyone else. The Final has established itself as a sell-out event for the past five years and continues to grow in stature and appeal; this year's Final will take place on Saturday May 25th at Twickenham Stadium.
It is therefore my pleasure to offer you an opportunity to apply for the best tickets exclusively before they go on general sale, via a ballot open to season ticket holders of all clubs. To find out more and complete your application, please visit: premiershiprugby.com/ballot. The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday, 23 September.
I wish you and your team the best of luck for what promises to be another exciting season of Aviva Premiership Rugby.
