A message from Managing Director, Al Kellock (24 June, 2021)
I hope you remain safe and well and are looking forward to the new season as much as we are.
We are delighted to have launched our Season Ticket and Warrior Nation Membership packages for 2021/22 – returning to a traditional Membership package for the first time since the 2019/20 season - and it has been great to see so many renewals as we head back to filling Scotstoun once again.
This past week it has also been confirmed we will compete in the brand-new United Rugby Championship; that Premier Sports will carry all our URC games for the next four seasons, with the league and broadcaster making a commitment to enhance their coverage going forward; and that we have qualified for the 2021/22 Heineken Champions Cup.
It has been a good week and along with the strong finish to the season with wins over Edinburgh – to bring the 1872 Cup home for the first time in four years – Dragons, and the 2021 Guinness PRO14 champions, Leinster, there is a lot to get excited about as we look ahead to the new campaign.
We are offering our traditional Season Ticket Membership packages with a view to starting the new campaign with crowds back at Scotstoun. Scottish Rugby’s 16,500 capacity British & Irish Lions game on Saturday at BT Murrayfield and the government’s plan to lift all outstanding restrictions by 8 August are positive sign for crowds.
I can assure all our customers that you can buy with confidence though as we have a robust refund system in place in the event that we are unable to host fans at the stadium, or that we must reduce capacity.
The renewal window for 2020/21 Season Ticket Members will close on Sunday 25 July, giving supporters plenty of time to renew memberships. You can find the full timeline for sales here.
Our Warrior Nation Membership, which offers supporters first access to non-renewed season tickets, a pre-sale window for individual match tickets, competitions, and events is open now for general sale and costs just £30.
To those of you that have renewed so far and those planning to, thank you for your ongoing investment in our club.
New league, new coaches
The United Rugby Championship is going to be a great competition with less international crossover, meaning our best players will be available to us more often, and the inclusion of the top four South African franchises will bring a new dynamic and pace to our league.
I’m delighted to see we’re returning to a single league table where every game will matter for reaching the knock-out stages, as well as the investment being made in broadcast and match days.
Also be sure to stay in touch over the summer for more information about our pre-season games, URC dates and kick-off times, and the Heineken Champions Cup draw – keep an eye on our social channels for information in the next few weeks.
We’re looking forward to welcoming our new Assistant Coaches Nigel Carolan, from Connacht, and Alasdair Dickinson, from Bristol Bears, and their families to Scotstoun.
Nigel’s reputation precedes him when you look at the attack that Connacht have boasted in recent seasons and his depth of knowledge for developing players in that area. Alasdair brings with him a deep understanding of the scrum having played professionally for 15 years – including earning 58 Scotland caps – and has since coached with Scotland Women, and the FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academy as well as Bristol Bears.
Values at our core
With new coaches and players coming onboard, we will be working hard to ensure that they are made to feel very welcome in Glasgow. Over the summer we will not just focus on the performance side of the game, but we will apply equal emphasis on the values and culture that we, Glasgow Warriors have at our core.
I would also like to wish Peter Murchie all the very best as he heads out on tour with Scotland – his first time as a coach – for their fixtures against England A, Georgia, and Romania.
On behalf of everyone at the club, we’d like to wish all the very best of luck to all our players competing with the Lions, Scotland and Scotland U20 throughout the summer.
Finally, to you, thank you for your continued support of our club, whilst you may not have been with us, we could not have got through this past year without you. I can’t wait for the 2020/21 season to get underway and to welcome you back to Scotstoun soon.
Until then, I hope you all have an enjoyable summer.
A message from Managing Director, Al Kellock (13 April, 2021)
I hope that you’re well and continuing to stay healthy and upbeat as we continue to navigate what is still an unusual and challenging period. While we might still be apart for the time being, we remain connected by our passion for this club and I speak for everyone at Glasgow Warriors when I say that this club wouldn’t be as special as it is without you and the entire Warrior Nation.
I wanted to take some time to write to you now that I am in post and ahead of our opening Rainbow Cup fixtures and provide you with an update on what’s happening in and around Scotstoun.
My sincere thanks go to Nathan Bombrys for everything that he did for the club during his time as Managing Director. I’m grateful to Nathan for providing me with such a solid platform on which to build – this is a club and a city that I have an immense deal of pride to represent, and I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to help this club continue on the journey to be amongst Europe’s elite.
On the field, our players are continuing to lead by example when it comes to adhering to government COVID-19 guidance. They have been exceptional in diligently working within the protocols set by Scottish Rugby, and I must commend everyone – from players and coaches to backroom and front-office staff – for continuing to do their bit to help us return to normality as fast and as safely as possible.
The upcoming Guinness PRO14 Rainbow Cup is an exciting opportunity for the club to test itself not only against clubs with whom we’re familiar, but also the crème de la crème of South African rugby. Danny and his coaching team have a near-full squad from which to select, with our international stars returning and many of our young talents fit and ready to go having had impressive performances in recent weeks. It promises to be a unique opportunity for this team.
Whilst the Rainbow Cup is at the forefront of our attentions, it’s hard not to look ahead to next season and get excited about what lies in store for Glasgow Warriors. I truly believe that we are building a squad capable of competing with the best in Europe, with signings the calibre of Josh McKay, Jack Dempsey and Domingo Miotti only serving to underline our intent to return to the upper echelons of both the Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup. Scottish internationals Duncan Weir, Jamie Bhatti and Simon Berghan only further highlight the strength in depth that we’ll have at our disposal next season, whilst retaining players like George Horne, Scott Cummings and Sam Johnson – not to mention young talents like Ross Thompson, Ollie Smith and Rufus McLean – mean that it’s an incredibly exciting time to be a Glasgow Warriors supporter.
As we look ahead to the future, there is also plenty to be positive about on a wider scale. In the coming year we will begin to see the fruits of CVC’s investment into PRO14 Rugby as a whole, and we can take a lot of pride from competing in a competition with ambitions to further rugby’s global appeal.
Off the field, too, planning is already underway for the 2021/22 campaign. We’re currently in consultation with both internal and external parties as to our Season Ticket and Warrior Nation offerings for the new season. Information relating to these packages will be communicated to members once this is available.
Plans are also being made to host another virtual Members Event in the very near future, which will allow you to get some insight from our players – as well as myself – on everything on and off field as we approach the end of this season. Details for the event will be communicated to you in the coming weeks, and I look forward to seeing many of you on the event.
As soon as it’s safe to do so, I look forward to you filling Scotstoun again and creating the special atmosphere we are all missing. It’s been a long and strange year, but if we stick to the current guidance then I’m hopeful that it won’t be too long before we’re cheering on our team in person once again.
Until then, stay safe, stay well, and thank you once again for your continued support of our club.
