Supporter Information For Gala Match

17th January 2013

With tickets for this weekend’s match against Gala selling fast, there is important information that supporters will need to be aware of before they travel to the Athletic Ground.


Highlander tickets for the match are completely sold out and 1878 tickets are also going quickly. You'll need to head to fast if you want a seat. Standing Clan tickets will be available on the gate on Saturday.

Travel information

Due to planned closures, there will be no London Underground service to RIchmond station on Saturday. National Rail and London Bus services will be running as normal. Fans are advised to take this into consideration if they are planning on using public transport to get to the ground. The car park at the Athletic Ground will be open as usual.

Gates opening

The gate will open at 12pm. With the high ticket sales, we are expecting a very busy crowd so it is likely there will be queues at the ground. Fans are advised to arrive as early as possible.

Kick off time

The game will kick off at 2pm. The game had been originally advertised as beginning at 3pm but this has changed due to an RFU initiative that states that all British and Irish Cup games on this day must kick off at 2pm.

Enjoy the game!
