Allianz, the world’s largest insurance company, is delighted with the first Premiership match played at Allianz Park.
Saracens defeated Exeter Chiefs 31-11 at the new stadium in the heart of north London, and the capacity crowd evidently enjoyed the occasion.
Clement Booth, member of the Allianz Board of Management, praised the club for the hard work in getting the new stadium ready and expressed his excitement for the future of the partnership between Allianz and Saracens.
He said: “On behalf of everyone at Allianz, I’d like to congratulate Saracens and all of those involved in delivering what is a terrific new stadium. Saturday’s match was befitting a wonderful moment in the club’s history and the players really rose to the occasion and got us off to a winning start at Allianz Park puts the seal on a great day.
“This is an excellent time to be partnering with Saracens, who are pushing the boundaries both on and off the pitch. The artificial turf pitch is just one example of their innovative thinking, which has benefits for the sport and the local community."
Allianz Park joins the Allianz Arena, home ground of FC Bayern Munich, Allianz Stadium in Sydney and the new Allianz Riviera in Nice, as part of the Allianz global family of stadiums.
