Round 1 Crowd Restriction Update

Due to the NSW Public Health Order, Randwick Rugby Club is restricted to a total attendance of 500 people for our Round 1 game against Newcastle at Coogee Oval tomorrow. This figure includes players, officials, staff and volunteers from BOTH sides.

On this basis we can only allow existing Season Ticket Holders, Life Members of our football club and our Sponsors in Coogee Oval and with strict COVID protocols to enable them entry into the ground – they must be seated and 1.5 metres apart.

Unfortunately at this stage no-one else is allowed to be in the ground and therefore NO TICKETS can or will be sold at the gate tomorrow.

Respectfully, we ask that you don’t come to the ground to attempt to gain entry to avoid any disappointment. If you don’t have a valid pass for this match you will be politely turned away.

It is obviously a hugely disappointing scenario for everyone concerned and the ever tightening COVID restrictions have tied our hands, as you would appreciate. We would absolutely love to have everyone that wanted to be here tomorrow, here, but we simply we cant. As a community club we have to and will respect the rules to ensure everyone’s safety.

TV Coverage News Update:
In more positive news, some success at the 11th hour… there will be vision of the Round 1 Coogee Oval games broadcast as follows:

  • The First Grade Colts game will be live-streamed tomorrow at 1.25 pm. The link to do so will be posted on our website and Facebook later today.
  • The First Grade game will also be covered, but due to exclusive contractual rights Channel 7 has to telecast the weekly match of the round, it can only be viewed on delay. This will be broadcast from 9am on Sunday morning from our website.

This coverage from Clutch TV won’t include commentary, but at least you can watch the game.

Please monitor our emails, website and Facebook pages for any updates on the ground capacity/ticket status for our upcoming home games.

We wish our boys all the best tomorrow in Round 1 and let’s hope to hear MacNamara’s Band echoing across the ground after a big win.
