The Rugby Groud Guide
Saracens at home to Worcester,April 2013

Stadium / Tickets

The Stadium: In November 2010 Saracens, searching for a new home after their landlord, Watford FC activated a break clause in their ground-share agreement, revealed that they were in discussions with Barnet Borough Council about a move to Barnet Copthall.

Under the plan, Saracens would redevelop the stadium into a modern facility with 3,000 permanent seats. Demountable stands would allow a capacity of 10,000 for          rugby matches whilst retaining the stadium's ability to host rugby events.

The plans also called for the use of an artificial pitch, the first in English rugby union.

A sponsorship deal with German financial services company Allianz that included stadium naming rights was announced in July 2012.

In June 2013, Allianz Park was voted Small Venue of the Year at the annual Stadium Business Summit Awards in Manchester

The new home of Saracens was short-listed alongside the Adler-Arena in Russia, the New York Stadium in Rotherham, the Netanya Municipal Stadium in Israel, the NV Arena in Austria and the Gallagher Stadium in Maidstone.

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….
