Allianz Park - five hours before kick-off
A look at the Allianz Park pitch at 10am this morning, five hours before kick-off, fully demonstrates the unique community sports hub that the stadium has become and will continue to be.
As you can sees from our images taken five hours before kick-off, the Alan Day Volkswagen festival has to be rearranged due to waterlogged pitches nearby so 600 children from local clubs were on the field from 9am thanks to the artificial turf playing surface.
Saracens will play their first Premiership match on the surface later today when Exeter Chiefs are the visitors, kick-off is 3pm.
