Rugby club Saracens are offering members of the capital’s Emergency Services 10,000 free tickets to watch September’s London Double Header clash in which the club will take on Northampton Saints, and London Irish play Harlequins at Twickenham Stadium.
The North London club says the offer is “a show of support for the inspiring work the London Emergency Services continue to provide the people of London.”
Club bosses are teaming up with the Metropolitan Police, London Ambulance Service the London Fire Brigade to offer full and part-time workers up to eight tickets each, allowing them to take friends and family with them.
A dedicated website link will be communicated to personnel through each service’s existing communications channels.
Saracens CEO, Heath Harvey, said: “We would like to illustrate our gratitude and thanks for the wonderful work our emergency services do on a daily basis in this great city by offering them free entry to one of the biggest days in the domestic rugby calendar.
“We recognise the work that they do and hope that in a small way we can help highlight just how much we as a Club and a City, appreciate them.”
Metropolitan Police Federation Chairman, Ken Marsh said: “Our thanks go to Saracens RFC for this generous offer – we have no doubt it will be a brilliant day for all involved.”
