26.06.2017

 

 

Saracens and Timisoara Saracens confirm their second on the pitch encounter, this time in London, on Allianz Park, for a pre-season match scheduled for August 25th 2017

 

 

 

Romania’s reigning back-to-back Champions Timisoara Saracens will reunite after a well-deserved break on Monday, June 10th 2017 to kick-off their pre-season training sessions. The Romanian Rugby Federation will confirm the schedule of the 2017/18 season during July.

 

Ahead of the 2017/18 SuperLiga regular season, Timisoara Saracens will travel to London at the end of August for a pre-season friendly match against Saracens, the back-to-back European Champions.

 

Before hosting Timisoara Saracens on Allianz Park, Sarries are scheduled to travel to Bahamas to meet the USA Islanders and to Greene King IPA Bedford Blues’ home ground and the match against the Romanian side of the Saracens Global Network will close up the Saracens pre-season campaign.

 

The friendly encounter in London will be a pre-season match where both teams have agreed to more than eight changes per match, which would allow testing as many players as possible ahead of the new season KO.

 

Timisoara Saracens hosted the Saracens almost 3 years ago, on October 18th, 2014 on the “Dan Paltinisanu” Stadium. Back then, the Saracens travelled to Romania with their second string team, the Saracens Storms, but the local public enjoyed the performance of Saracens’ Mouritz Botha, Catalin Fercu (returned to Timisoara Saracens in 2016) and young Maro Itoje. Timisoara Saracens won that first encounter by 15-10.

 

The match Saracens v Timisoara Saracens is scheduled for August 25th 2017, on Allianz Park, KO 19:30 (local time).

 

Tickets will be shortly available for purchase on the hosts’ official website www.saracens.com. Timisoara Saracens’ supporters willing to travel to London to enjoy an Allianz Park rugby afternoon and cheer for Romania’s champions will be provided with a promo code for online purchase. Details will be confirmed during the following days on the usual media channels.
