Tickets and hospitality are now on sale for Bedford Blues pre-season fixtures against English Premiership Champions Saracens and National One side Bishop’s Stortford.

On Saturday 18th August European giants and partner club Saracens will again make the short journey north to Goldington Road giving supporters the chance to see some of the world's best players on display in the season curtain-raiser (KO 3pm).

The off-season at Bedford Blues has been a very busy one this summer with the usual facilities works and the creation of a new hospitality suite at Goldington Road.

In partnership with SDC Builders, the Club are well underway with a major project in replacing the former Lifesure Suite boxes with a permanent shared hospitality suite above the players gym near the Bedford Blues entrance.

We are just a couple of weeks away from the visit of Nigel Owens, one of the most respected officials in World Rugby, to the Blues Marquee for a Sportsman’s Dinner on Friday 20th July.

Those in attendance the last time Nigel visited, just three days before the 2015 Rugby World Cup final, were so enthralled with his after-dinner speech that he received a five minute standing ovation.

Renowned for his quick retorts to defuse even the ugliest of scenes on the field - "If you want a cwtch, do it after the match” - Owens has established himself as one of the best and most respected referees in the world.

The Followers Summer Works programme starts tomorrow, Saturday 30th June, at Goldington Road and we need you! The preparation for the new season starts now with lots of ground tasks to support the club.

Works will include weeding, clearing vegetation, pruning, sweeping, cleaning, painting, spreading shingle and much more. Just come along on any Saturday morning between 8am and 1pm and if you can spare any small tools, gloves, garden equipment or paintbrushes please bring them along and help out.

There's only ONE DAY left to secure your discounted Season Ticket for 2018/19 and capture a great range of benefits being part of the Blues Family, but we have a special online extended offer for new supporters!
