Worcester Warriors is delighted to confirm that HRH The Princess Royal will visit Sixways in November.
Princess Anne will be the special guest of the club on Tuesday, November 17 when she will be given a tour of the Slick Systems Stand and learn more about the club's 65-acre home and multi-million pound redevelopment over the last decade.
Warriors will be outlining the club's rise to the Guinness Premiership as she meets members of the coaching team and players.
The role of the club in the local business community, with the Sixways Events business, will also be outlined.
Schoolchildren will also be in attendance to showcase the club's dedicated work in the community and our efforts at the Warriors Study Centre.
Local dignitaries and organisations will also be at Sixways to meet The Princess Royal during her tour that will conclude with Princess Anne unveiling a plaque to commemorate her visit.
Charlie Little, General Manager at Warriors, said: "We are delighted to be able to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to Sixways in November.
"Over the last ten years or so the club has seen an unprecedented level of development and growth, both on the pitch and off it.
"Her visit is in recognition of this and the importance that rugby now has in the city of Worcester.
"It's fantastic that Princess Anne has chosen to recognise this and come to visit us."
Premiership Rugby today announced an extension of their partnership with the UK's largest insurance company, Aviva, for a further three years. The contract extension, which starts in the 2014-15 season, will cover a golden era for club rugby in England and will include a period when the country will host a Rugby World Cup and when rugby union will finally rejoin the Olympic movement.
Not only are the great and the good of the Aviva Premiership Rugby strutting their stuff at Twickenham this Saturday - so are the new generation of rugby players, including Worcester RFC, courtesy of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.
Warrior Stuart Brooks will represent the club at Twickenham next weekend as he battles for the honour of carrying the coveted Aviva Premiership Rugby trophy onto the pitch ahead of the final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints.
