Five Friday games for Warriors
12:00pm Friday 13th July 2012 in Worcester Warriors
FIVE of Worcester Warriors’ home fixtures during the 2012-13 season will take place on Friday nights.
London Irish, Sale Sharks, Saracens, London Wasps and London Welsh will all visit Sixways under the floodlights for Aviva Premiership matches.
The respective dates are September 28, October 26, November 23, December 21 and March 1 but the majority of home league games will kick-off at 3pm on Saturdays.
Charlie Little, managing director at Warriors, said: “There are lots of factors we must take into consideration when finalising our fixtures but, as in previous years, we have committed this year to playing most of our games on Saturday afternoon.
“We also plan to play our LV= Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup games on Saturdays, unless broadcasting partners deem otherwise."
He added: “We are fortunate that we are able to play on both Friday evenings and Saturday at Sixways and have a growing audience for both days.
“Matches under the floodlights here are always special occasions and the players and crowd really respond to that. Last season we played five league games on Friday nights and the Warriors won four of them.”
