Autumn Internationals

Ticket requests for the Autumn Internationals may be made now.   There are three games Japan, New Zealand and Argentina.  Tickets can be ordered for games individually.  Just to note there are no family packs for these games as there were for Autumn internationals in the past.   Also, tickets will be E-tickets so it is imperative that you supply your email address with the ticket.  As Covid rules also apply so your email address is required for contact tracing purposes.

Tickets, once allocated, will be issued by Ticketmaster and you will be paying Ticketmaster directly for your tickets.

The cost of tickets are set out in the table below plus a Ticketmaster charge of €3.50 per ticket.   Just to note that Schools tickets are in a section on their own and adults are not allowed.  We would also note that Balbriggan only have a very small allocation of school tickets (4).

We are unaware of how many tickets will be allocated to us but Leinster have indicated that we will get 70% of our 6 Nations allocation.  We have limited control over the location of tickets as that will be done by Ticketmaster.

 

Description Japan New Zealand Argentina
Category 1 Stand                       80.00                     125.00                       85.00

The process is that you complete your order in the format below, indicating the number of tickets you require for each game ensuring that you complete each line

 

First Name Last Name Email Address Match Ticket Price No of Tickets
Japan
 
New Zealand
Argentina

 

If we need to allocate tickets, preference will be given to those who have paid their current season membership   We are setting a max limit of 2 tickets per member to order.  If you wish to sit with other family members or groups wishing to sit together please let me know and we will see what can be done.   If you are ordering for a group of Club members please indicate the other members so that we are aware and don’t unfairly reduce numbers (Remember preference rules will still apply).  If you are ordering for 3 people you can order 6 tickets but you must name the other people.   The Club is responsible for Covid tracking so we do need names and emails.

 

The Club holds the right to reduce any ticket order so that the aggregate of the Club’s order is in line with 70% of our allocation total.

 

Please respond only to the following email address – inttickets@balbrigganrfc.com.  Only email responses correctly completed will be accepted.

 

Orders must be back no later than Friday 8th October.   We are told that those who have been successful in ordering tickets will receive emails from Ticketmaster re same on 21st October.   Presumably at that stage you will be required to pay Ticketmaster to release your tickets.

Balbriggan RFC Membership for Season 2021-2022

Registration and membership payment for the upcoming season is on Clubforce, through the following link –
Note – Mini & Youth Membership – For season 2021-22, we have again built the ‘weekly sub’ of €3 per child (€5 for 2 siblings and so on) into the online membership. In other words we will no longer be taking payment of the weekly sub at the club, and the online membership payment is a once-off payment that covers the entire season, up to the end of April 2022. This represents a substantial discount on club membership for minis and youths.
All membership payments, from minis through to seniors and pavilion members, are to be made through the above link. There is an option to pay your membership upfront, or to spread payments across 3 x monthly instalments.
Any enquiries/queries, please email info@balbrigganrfc.com.

Dear Member,

Please take note of the following:

Notice of the forthcoming Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of Balbriggan RFC has been sent by e-mail to paid up members of the Club earlier this afternoon. This post also provides Notice to the members of the Club of the forthcoming AGM which is to be held at the club’s premises (unless otherwise specified) on Wednesday 18th August at 8.30pm.

Election of Officers: In light of the Covid-19 Global Pandemic, and in line with the decisions already by the IRFU, the Leinster Branch IRFU and the North East Area Leinster Branch IRFU, the Executive Committee of Balbriggan RFC have decided to continue each person in their roles on the Executive Committee for the season 2021 – 2022, subject to the members at General Meeting.

As per Article 10 of the Constitution of Balbriggan RFC “Voting Members” as at 1st November 2020 are entitled to vote at the AGM. The Constitution of Balbriggan RFC can be accessed at the Club website at http://balbrigganrfc.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/2014.10.21-Balbriggan-RFC-Club-Constitution.pdf

Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic and guided by Government of Ireland advice on health and safety, the AGM may be postponed or cancelled at short notice. In the alternative, the AGM may be switched to “virtual conference call” held by Zoom. Attendees at the AGM will have to comply with social distancing and complete covid-19 health declaration forms.

Attendees must confirm in advance their intention to attend the AGM in order to ensure that a space is reserved and therefore must reply to the Hon Secretary confirming that they will attend.

Community Enhancement Programme Funding at Balbriggan RFC

Thank you to Fingal County Council for the support that we received as part of their Community Enhancement Programme. We received funding of €700 which supported us in buying three boot cleaners, one for each of our pitches. The boot cleaners are a much-needed addition to the club, particularly as we train and play most of our matches during the winter months. Thank you to Fingal County Council for their continued support of Balbriggan RFC.

 

Return To Rugby

It was great to see our minis and youths return to training this week. The theme of training sessions was fun, as players took to the pitch for the first time in four months. Our younger minis (U6/7 through to U9) will return to training on Sunday May 2nd. Training is at 10.00am-11.00am.

The Stingers will return to training on Sunday May 9th – U18’s only, for the first training session, as per government regulations.

From Monday May 10th, seniors will return to training.
