Saracens - Matchday Festivals

Match Day Festivals at Allianz Park

Since 2009, Saracens Match Day Festivals have been a huge success, proving popular amongst our partner rugby clubs as well as the wider community, and even with touring sides from overseas taking part.

After the overwhelming positive feedback expressed in recent seasons, Saracens will once again be inviting clubs from across the community to take part in our Match Day Festivals throughout the 2017/18 season. Allianz Park, the home of Saracens in North London, will play host to festivals throughout the season, providing an opportunity to experience playing on the unique artificial pitch. By utilising the surrounding playing areas and the stadium itself, Saracens will deliver a structured and professional competition with qualified and experienced referees. With access to Saracens players and of course attendance to see Saracens in action as part of our match day experience, this provides a great platform for young players to not only enjoy competitive rugby but also to watch their heroes in action.

Don’t just take our word for it…

  • “Myself and the other coaches and mini players and Deal and Betteshanger would like to drop a note of thanks to you and your team! The tournament this weekend was superbly run, great fun and immeasurable valuable to our group of players, who thoroughly loved every second on their experience! On top of that, Saracens now has at least 30 lifelong young supporters who must have bought every bit of merchandise available. Thank you again!!.” William Wilson, Deal & Betteshanger RFC, U10s Head Coach
  • “Thank you for running a great tournament last weekend.  It was good to be playing teams we don’t normally come across in the season. Feedback from the kids and parents is that it was a brilliant day. So much so that I’ve had lots of requests to run another trip to Allianz park as an age group social for parents and kids alike.” Giles Cadge, Tring RFC, U12s Coach
  • “I just wanted to say thank you very much for organising and inviting us to a wonderful day at Saracens on Sunday. I know all of the children had a fantastic time - loved playing on the pitch and getting to sit with the trophy and watch the game at the end. It was such a special day for them and a real privilege - these experiences will last for a long time and hopefully create a few Saracens supporters (and maybe the odd player!) in the future.” David Rees, Harpenden, U7 Head Coach
