Worcester Warriors will tomorrow (Saturday) open the doors for FREE as we welcome supporters to Sixways for the annual Warriors Open Day and our final pre-season fixture against Cornish Pirates!
Doors open at Sixways tomorrow at 12 noon with activities and events running throughout the afternoon before the Warriors take to the pitch at 5pm to face our good friends from Cornwall as we welcome the Pirates.
The highlight for many is the chance to meet the Warriors – new and old – with signing sessions taking place. The non-playing players will be mingling around the stadium between 2pm and 3pm while there will be a signing session at 2.45pm at the back of the Slick Systems Stand.
The Sixways Store will be open from the start of the day so you can get your hands on the latest Warriors kit and also match tickets for all our games up until Christmas – including the big one against Sale Sharks as we return to the Aviva Premiership on Saturday, September 3.
A Colts rugby tournament will be taking place on Cummins Farm and visitors are welcome to go along and watch. The finals will take place on the stadium pitch at 12.50pm.
The Mini/Junior section will also be on the stadium pitch from 2pm for a pitch up and play session. Has your child ever dreamed on playing on the stadium pitch? Well, this is there big chance!
The local fire brigade will be on site while our cheerleaders – Dance in Motion – will be doing displays on the pitch – and you can join in too!
Stadium Tours – so you can get behind the scenes at Sixways – start at 12.30pm and run until 2.30pm. This will be given by various members of the backroom team and coaching staff, so you could get Head Coach Richard Hill giving you all the inside gossip from life at Warriors! Tours begin from the collection point outside the Sixways Lower – just look for the Bus Stop sign!
West Midlands Safari Park will be visiting us with some animals and they will be based under the Slick Stand.
Feeling athletic? Back by popular demand, why not try the climbing wall challenge? Or grab a gun and show your shooting skills with the Laser Shoot Challenge!
Face painters will be here to make you look the part, you can tuck into cupcakes and decorate them and we will even be trying a new sport for Sixways… cricket on the Training Pitch!
BBC Hereford & Worcester will be at Sixways to talk you through the day, the Warriors Rugby Supporters Club are here to help you become a big Warriors fan this season and we even have stilt walkers around the complex!
We will also be showcasing our charity work with Acorns Children’s Hospice while Warriors Community Foundation will be holding a raffle on the day! Tickets are £1 or £3 for a strip and you could win the top prize of a hospitality box for ten for our Aviva Premiership opener with Sale Sharks! Other prizes include a new Warriors shirt and tickets to West Midlands Safari Park.
Remember – The Warriors Open Day is FREE! Come and join us for a family fun day with lots of activities before the big one as we entertain Cornish Pirates from 5pm!
