Ground Information:

Formerly known as Penzance & Newlyn Pirates, the Cornish Pirates play their home games at their traditional home at Mennaye Field in Penzance.

There has been much talk of plans to build a permanent 15,000- seat stadium which will be fit to host Premiership rugby, but the club is still considering its options, particularly as the minimum entry requirements to the Premiership are in a state of flux.

The club developed a business plan with Cornwall Council to build a stadium which could host both the Pirates and Truro City Football Club, but   the Council refused any public funding

 

June 2015

The long-running saga over a new stadium for Cornish Pirates is set to drag on even further.

The clubs’ hopes were dashed when Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee meeting to consider a retail development which would largely fund the £10million was postponed at short notice.

The 6,000 capacity stadium – with the option to extend to the 10,000 necessary to satisfy Premiership rugby criteria for a place in the top flight – planned for Threemilestone near Truro, is crucial to any hopes Pirates have of playing Premiership rugby in the foreseeable future.

At the time of writing every rugby writer (well at least those in the English papers) is obsessed with the success to date of the English side in the Six Nations, with two thumping wins out of two, and a contest in Cardiff on the horizon.

That falls on the quarter-final weekend in the Champions … Continue reading Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open
