A fun, exciting evening of Legends Rugby followed by live band & dancing
At the Twickenham Stoop on Friday 26th February, KO 7.45pm
Sportingclass, in partnership with Harvey Thorneycroft Ltd will for the seventh year running manage the charity match between the England and Ireland Legends - once again sponsored by Validus RE. The match alternates annually between Twickenham and Dublin - this year falls at the Twickenham Stoop.
The match, in which all players volunteer to play free of charge raises hugely valuable funds for both English and Irish charities. This year's beneficiaries will be The RPA's Restart Rugby - The Players Charity; the RFU's Injured Players Foundation, the IRFU Charitable Trust, The IRUPA and The Lewis Moody Foundation.
The evening is designed to be a fun, family night of entertainment with pre-match curtain raisers between local rugby minis, half time entertainment and a live band and dancing post-match. "The emphasis has always been to raise as much funds for the charities as possible whilst ensuring we put on a really fantastic night of entertainment for all of those that come. The event would not take place without our loyal sponsors and partners and of course not without the amazing willingness of the players who travel from far afield to play" said Andy Lee MD of Sportingclass and ex Saracens player.
