Club statement on DCMS letter

Worcester Warriors are aware of a letter that is in circulation from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport claiming that the owners have put the club into administration.

This is NOT true. The statement was sent out in error by DCMS who have apologised for their mistake and the distress and anxiety it has caused to our staff and suppliers at what is already an extremely stressful time.

As we stated yesterday, we are awaiting the signing of Heads of Terms on an agreement with a buyer which would secure the long-term future of the club.

We are continuing to work closely with the DCMS, RFU and PRL to ensure that this weekend’s Allianz Cup and Gallagher Premiership matches against Harlequins Women and Exeter Chiefs respectively can go ahead.
