The Western Force will complete their pre-season preparations against the Pampas XV at 'The Force Field- - nib Stadium - on Friday, February 14.

The final pre-season match will provide the Western Australian franchise with its first opportunity to play on the renovated surface at their home venue.

The match against the Argentinian side was initially scheduled for Arena Joondalup, but has been relocated.

The Force will kick off their pre-season fixtures against Samoa A in Rockingham on Friday, February 7.

RugbyWA CEO Mark Sinderberry says the matches will whet the appetite of the Force's supporter base, the Sea of Blue, ahead of the franchise's Super Rugby season opener against the NSW Waratahs in Sydney on Sunday, February 23.

"We're very proud to have the opportunity to run both pre-season matches in front of our incredible Sea of Blue in Perth," he said.

"We're very pleased to be able to stage a regional pre-season match in Rockingham and we know there is fantastic support for rugby in the area.

"We're also excited about providing our supporters with their chance to see our team in action at their home ground prior to the beginning of the season."
