Excitement continues to build ahead of the Modus Challenge Cup as RGS Worcester & The Alice Ottley School take on King’s Worcester – with tickets flying out of the respective schools and the Ticket Office at Sixways!
This historic local fixture of passion, commitment and desire is coming on Wednesday (November 28) with the U18 teams set to do battle.
Tickets are available from the Warriors Ticket Office priced at £2 for Adults and £2 for Juniors. Car Park passes are also available at £2. RGSAO Worcester and Kings Worcester will also be selling tickets to students and their families at the same price.
South Stand Hospitality Suites, offering a private room for ten people, private balcony and two course meal, will be available from the Warriors Sales Team on 01905 454183, priced at £20 per head.
So, want to know what the Modus Challenge Cup means to the two schools involved? We caught up with the two captains and they told us what it is all about….
ELLIOT BEE – RGSAO
“We’re all looking forward to it, it is a great chance to show how we can play and it’s a real honour to play on the Warriors first team pitch. It is all everyone is talking about around school and tickets are selling really fast.
There is plenty of good natured banter between the two teams but on the night we are both very serious about trying to win – it’s all about school pride.
We won last year but it was very close. You never know who is going to come out on top in these derby games.
The team feel we are playing well and hopefully we can peak at the right time for the game.
This could be the start of something really special with the Modus Challenge Cup here every year if it goes well and I would urge people to come along and watch the game. You can’t take your eyes off the game, the atmosphere will be amazing.”
DOMINIC WOOD – KINGS
“We sold 400 tickets at school on the first day and we are all really buzzing about playing at Sixways – the home of the Warriors!
As a team we have played well so far this season, we have a new team but have still won 13 games. We have had a really good run going against RGSAO the last few years but it didn’t happen last year so we want to set that record straight.
Off the pitch we are all good friends but on it we are going to battle for the ball all over the pitch and with a big crowd cheering us on it should be a really good spectacle.
It’s fantastic that Warriors have allowed us to stage the game on the stadium pitch and I’m sure it will be a game to grace it. We also should thank the sponsors Modus for coming on board and helping raise the profile of the game.”
