Bracken - Lions at Allianz Park will be a great day
Saracens legendary scrum-half Kyran Bracken will host the live screening of the British and Irish Lions’ first test at Allianz Park on Saturday 22 June, in what the ex-England and Lions tourist predicts will be an ‘exciting day for rugby fans’.
If you can’t make it to Australia, watching the game alongside thousands of fans is the second best place to be as our giant 10m x 6.5m screen will be located on the pitch to provide perfect viewing from the East Stand amid genuine match day atmosphere.
“It’s going to be very exciting,” said Bracken, who was a member of the last victorious Lions squad in 1997 when the then Saracens half-back was drafted in to the Lions squad as a replacement for the injured Rob Howley.
“The great thing about going to Allianz Park to watch these matches is the facilities are superb and so well catered for, and the East Stand is brilliant and offers the fan a comfortable setting to watch a fantastic game of rugby along with likeminded individuals.
“You would imagine that Saracens fans would be the common denominator on the day, but I would hope that all rugby fans, regardless of who they may or not follow, would want to sample that big match atmosphere,"
An expert panel led by Bracken will offer a players’ and coaches’ perspective before and after the game, as well as delivering their half time team-talk.
“Where else could you watch the match in a stadium packed full of rugby fans, with an expert panel in a fantastic facility?” asked Bracken.
“If you are looking to sample that ‘Lions atmosphere’ then coming to Allianz Park can provide you just that. It is something that I am certainly looking forward to, and it promises to be a fantastic occasion.”
Entry to Allianz Park is £10 for adults and £5 for U16s and you can sit in the East Stand or on the artificial turf pitch.
Alternatively, our breakfast brunch package is £35 which includes an all you can eat breakfast in the hospitality suites and seats in the VIP areas.
