Last season Saracens match day festivals proved to be one of the biggest and most popular events in the fixture calendar for a number of clubs mini age groups.
This season our match day experience for mini players from U7-U10 age groups will continue to evolve with all fixtures taking place within the Allianz Park stadium itself, utilising the artificial 4G pitch. Saracens will maximise the stadiums big screens to deliver an improved interactive experience for parents and players whilst continuing to provide qualified and experienced referees for all matches. New this season Saracens are able to offer opportunities for clubs who run development sides to take part and experience a match day festival.
This season we are offering two different festivals to participate in.
• U7 – U10 Allianz Cup – This age group festivals invite you to enter your ‘A’ team for each age group. If you feel you have more than one competitive squad across each age group you are welcome to enter more than one team.
• U7 – U10 Alan Day Volkswagen Development Cup – This age group festivals invite you to enter a ‘development’ team for each age group. If you feel you have more than one squad across each age group that meets this criteria we encourage you to enter more than one team. Development team refers to those sides looking for a fun, social and competitive festival for those players who not regularly playing ‘A’ team rugby.
We would like to see clubs from across our community represented and advise teams to sign up to the festival dates early to avoid disappointment. Clubs are welcome to enter more than one team to the festivals should you have the numbers to do so. Please note, the festival age groups U7- U10 will be played under the new RFU Rules of Play regulations
