Full house for Premiership Final
Mon, 20 May 2013 16:27
Saturday's Premiership Final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints will be watched by a crowd of more than 82,000 after tickets sold out faster than any previous Premiership Final.
"The appeal of Premiership Rugby is at an all-time high and selling out the Final so quickly this year is great news for professional club rugby in England," said Dominic Hayes, Premiership Rugby's Commercial Director.
"Saturday's game has captured the public's imagination and the buzz around a Tigers versus Saints match on domestic rugby's biggest stage is huge.
"It is testament to the great work of the team involved in marketing the Final and also to our 12 clubs all of whom will be well represented at Twickenham on Saturday."
This is the sixth consecutive year that the Premiership Final has sold out with all profits returning to the 12 Premiership clubs.
