With preparations in full swing for Harlequins opening Guinness Premiership game of the season against London Irish in the London Double Header on Saturday (15th September), below is some important information you should know about the day.
For pre-match refreshments, the Kings bar in the Etihad Stand at the Twickenham Stoop will be open from 1.00pm for you to enjoy a drink before the game, and will also be showing the World Cup match between Wales and Australia, kick-off 2.00pm. If you're in need of a drink after the game, the Kings bar will also be open straight after the Quins match has finished.
To those supporters planning on driving to Twickenham, please note that there will be no parking available on-site at the Stoop, except for corporate hospitality guests and debenture holders. The Rosebine car park will be open, but cars will be charged £15 to park there as this is being controlled by the RFU on Saturday. As a result of this, Gold and Premier season ticket holders will NOT be entitled to complimentary car parking in the Rosebine car park this weekend.
If you would like to purchase some of Quins new range of merchandise for the season, then the shop in the Lexus Stand will be open from 12.00pm to 3.30pm. Furthermore, there will also be a merchandise unit in the West Stand Car Park at Twickenham Stadium where a selected range of Quins merchandise will be available.
