New Stand will be used at opening Newport match!
We appreciate that you, our loyal supporters have been very patient whilst all the work on the stadium has been going on around you. We hope that when you look at the new stand and the reclad Hazell Stand you will think it was well worth the wait. There is however one last thing that needs to be done and to achieve that we have one final favour to ask of you all.
To get our full safety certificate we need to comply with the regulations that require us to stage a full evacuation of the new stand. We are aiming to do this at our first home game against Llanelli RFC on the 3rd September. To do it we need as many people as possible in the new stand so that we can organise and prove the required evacuation works.
We are offering a one off opportunity to enjoy seats in the brand new Bisley Stand and to see the facilities on offer at no extra cost. The constraints imposed on us mean that none of the terraces or the Hazell Stand will be open for that match, we appreciate that many people normally prefer to watch their rugby standing on the terraces but we are asking that for this one off occasion you help your club by taking a seat in the stand. The ticket prices will reflect the fact that you will all be helping us with the evacuation procedure which will be at the end of the game.
We are very excited by the potential this years team have shown in training and pre season friendlies. The prospect of having such a wonderful new stadium to play in coupled with the new training facilities and gym, (when finished) augers well for the coming season.
Can we thank you all in advance for your help and co-operation.
