ENTER THE BALLOT TO ATTEND

RI_Composite_Light_Official Hygiene Partner

Saracens Men will host a Leicester Tigers XV in a pre-season friendly on Saturday 12th December with the club delighted to confirm 1,000 members will be able to attend the fixture.

The game is free of charge and will not count as one of the 16 matches purchased as part of a Seasonal Membership.

Following the Government’s confirmation that London has been placed in Tier 2 of the localised COVID-19 restriction measures, Copthall Stadium will be opening its doors for fans for the first time since the Men in Black faced the Tigers back in March.

It is anticipated that this will be the first of several pre-season games for the Saracens Men’s squad ahead of the eagerly awaited start to the Greene King IPA Championship in January.

This game, along with the other Men’s pre-season fixtures and the upcoming Saracens Women’s home games will each have separate ballots to fans to enter and provide the perfect opportunity to get our supporters back to the stadium to support our teams.

The games will also allow the club to demonstrate we can provide a safe and Covid-secure venue. This will help us welcome back many more fans to the stadium once Government restrictions allow.

Please read all the information below carefully before entering the ballot and refer to our FAQs at the bottom of the page if you have any questions.

FAQs

The club will be hosting two pilot events, in line with government regulations, to put its Covid-19 protocols into practice.

Saracens fully understands some people are exempt from wearing a face covering for medical reasons and that the reasons for this may not be visible to others. We will not ask for written evidence of this.

Some people however may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. This could be in the form of an exemption card, badge or even a home-made sign.

Partners

On the evening of Wednesday 11th May, a host of Saracens Womens players will be descending on StoneX Stadium to take on the role of coach and give young players from the community the chance to learn from the very best.

The session is open to all players aged U11 – U18 and will provide an opportunity to work with players on a number of skill stations alongside Saracens’ award winning community coaches and high-profile Saracens players under the floodlights of StoneX Stadium on the 4G pitch!

The session will allow young players to train in a fun and enjoyable environment developing individual concepts such as catch & pass, evasion and game play.

The coaching session will be followed by an opportunity to collect autographs and mingle with the players responsible for some of the most expansive and entertaining rugby in the Allianz Premiership 15s.

OVERVIEW

The Saracens Players Coaching Event is Saracens’ most immersive coaching experience. The programme, following on from the mens event which is now in its eighth season, will look to provide a similar experience in this first event of its kind for the Womens Team at the club.

Saracens profile players are able to attend these evenings to pass on their expert coaching tips to young players across the community. The Saracens players will instil some of the values that drive them, urging young talent to work hard; play with honesty, humility and discipline whilst working together as a team.

Each child will receive their very own limited edition t-shirt to train in and the evening will conclude with an opportunity to collect autographs plus have photos taken with some of the biggest names in the Gallagher Premiership, most of whom are often unable to attend our traditional rugby camps programme.

SARACENS RESIDENTIAL RUGBY CAMP

Come and experience the life of a professional rugby player on our residential camp. For two days and one night you will eat, sleep, train, recover and abide by the Core Values in the same way as the Saracens first team do daily.

Throughout your time with some of our top coaches you will work on differing skills that will make you a more rounded player and give you the ability to view the game from different perspectives on the pitch. You will develop skills in leadership, decision making and goal setting as well as creating a game plan that will suit the players around you.

Outside of training the players will learn more about nutrition, the best ways to recover after rugby activity and what work is done away from the pitch in terms of preparation and analysis, all of which will help players achieve their goals set out with coaches throughout the camp.

Our coaches will each bring a range of skills all specialising in different areas of the game. Their knowledge will enable players to work on position specific skills, as well as giving them the opportunity to learn something new, including kicking, scrummaging and passing as well as the contact areas of the game.

Whilst at a Saracens Rugby Camp children will strive to adhere to our core values:

Discipline

We understand our role within the team and commit to be the best that we can be.

Honesty

We are honest with our self and help create a safe environment where others can give and receive honest feedback.

Work Rate

We work together as a team and always give 100%.

Humility

We are good losers as well as good winners and we treat everyone with respect.
