Weekends are about to get a whole more exciting for young supporters of the Exeter Chiefs as we today announce our ‘Super Saturday’ plans for the new 2016/17 season.
Whether it be for an Aviva Premiership, European Champions Cup or Anglo-Welsh fixture here at Sandy Park, more often that not you will find the Exeter Chiefs Community department will be hard at work welcoming youngsters from rugby clubs, schools or other organisations to the ground to take part in the club’s hugely successful Super Saturday Experience.
In what was a very busy year in terms of Super Saturdays in 2015/16, the club welcomed in excess of 50 different groups of youngsters to Sandy Park to experience what was another memorable season in English rugby’s top flight and European competition.
Now for the upcoming season, we will once again be hosting our Super Saturday experience for groups on match-days.
Entering into what will be our ninth year, the experience continues to get better and better for all those who choose to sign up to what is a magical day out. Hosted by the club’s Community Department, Super Saturdays allow schools, rugby youth sections or other interested groups the chance to see what life is really like for the Chiefs as they gear up to face not only English rugby’s elite teams, but also that of Europe’s finest.
Not only do participants get the opportunity to learn from and train with members of Rob Baxter’s first team squad, but they will also get the chance to watch a live Exeter Chiefs match; have a behind the scenes look at the club’s state of the art facilities; welcome the team onto the pitch, as well as have the chance to run around the pitch at half time on match-days showcasing their club, group or school.
Already plans for this year’s Super Saturdays are well advanced and bookings are now being sought from interested parties keen to take in the action for the first half of the season.
Super Saturday Programme
* Two-Hour training session
* Behind the Scenes Tour
* Exeter Chiefs Goodie Bag
* Match-Day ticket in SW Comms stand
* Guard of Honour pre-game
* Lap of Honour at half time
All of the above is included in the Super Saturday at the price of £30 per person, but this season the Chiefs Community department are limiting child spaces to that of 150 per game and a maximum 325 including adults.
However, the club do have a second package which will be offered on some fixtures which will not include the training or tour at a reduced rate.
To ensure the club maximise numbers for each game, they will again require a deposit which will confirm a booking. Please note that no deposit may result in you losing your booking. A deposit of £10 per person is required.
