Bath Rugby vs Gloucester Rugby re-arranged kick time confirmed
2 February 2019
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GAME HAS SINCE BEEN POSTPONED FOR A SECOND TIME AND WILL NOW KICK OFF AT 7:30PM ON MONDAY 4 FEBRUARY.
The Premiership Rugby Cup tie at Bath Rugby which was postponed on Saturday due to snow at the Rec, has been re-arranged for 4:30pm on Sunday 3 February.
Bath Rugby confirmed on Saturday morning:
“We are one of many businesses across the region effected by the recent snowfall which has been much heavier than forecast. We work closely with Premiership Rugby, and particularly Sports Stadia Services who manage Premiership Rugby’s adverse weather pitch management systems and advise the clubs regarding the management of conditions such as heavy snow fall.
“We have been focused on delivering the game with minimal possible disruption, and whilst the game could not be delivered today it will now be possible to play tomorrow. Over the course of the day the snow is expected to thaw substantially. This means that heated dome can be erected by Sports Stadia Services later today and operated throughout the night to melt the remaining snow and ice.”
“Whilst Sunday afternoon fixtures aren’t a preference for many of our supporters, we believe the revised fixture time, which is slightly later in the day to ensure the pitch is ready for play, would be much preferred rather than delaying the game to Monday evening.” Commented Alex Cohen, Operations Director at Bath Rugby.
All tickets purchased for this game are still valid for the rescheduled fixture.
A gesture of thanks
Whilst the match has had to be rescheduled due to weather conditions outside of the Club’s control, Bath Rugby appreciate that this change in time and day could be an inconvenience to some supporters.
Therefore, Bath Rugby would like to offer all those with a valid matchday ticket for this fixture a free voucher to attend one of the Premiership Rugby Cup group stage games, due to take place in September and early October, next season to say thank you.
How to claim your voucher
You will need to return your match ticket via post or in person to the Bath Rugby ticket office on or after Monday 11th February. Bath Rugby will then exchange it for a voucher which is valid for the group stages of the Premiership Rugby Cup next season.
This offer is open to match-paying ticket holders only and the deadline for ticket returns is Friday 1st March. All used/unused scanned/unscanned matchday tickets will be honoured.
