UPDATE: Premiership Rugby have since released the following statement: “There is absolutely no segregation at the London Double Header on 1 September. Through Ticketmaster we have identified where club season ticket and friends and family allocations will be located allowing fans to make their seat choices according.
“We value the London Double Header, which brings together four teams and would encourage neutral fans to get behind a team for the day which makes for a great atmosphere within the stadium.”
Premiership Rugby have confirmed this afternoon that the London Double Header will be held on September 1st, except with a twist:
For the first time this season each club will be given a specific area of the ground for its supporters, so don’t delay buy your ticket today and show support for your team.
Now, part of the Double Header’s appeal for years has been the banter between supporters as fans have mingled amicably. Yet now they will be kept apart, meaning that for large parts of the afternoon huge areas of the stadium will be full of empty seats from fans not wanting to watch the “other match”.
Therefore, we want your opinion as to whether Premiership Rugby have got it right or wrong, by voting below:
