The stadium pitch has this week been covered by a heated dome run by Sports & Stadia Services and this will remain on the playing surface until matchday. Referee Chris White will be at the club for a pitch inspection at 3pm on Friday and will also hold a further inspection prior to the game on Saturday. Any updates will be posted first on www.warriors.co.uk
The infrastructure around the stadium has been deemed suitable for the game to go ahead. Primary and secondary routes around the complex and county have been gritted and between now and match day smaller roads around the area will also be gritted. However, all motorists planning to travel to Sixways are urged to use caution and allow extra time for their journey.
Season Ticket holders are reminded that they can use FREE travel on First Midland on match day and they will be operating the usual match day timetable, but running an hour ahead due to the earlier kick-off time. Worcester Warriors would recommend fans use this method of transport to get to the stadium.
Supporters are encouraged to allow extra time to get to the stadium on Saturday. If parking and walking to the stadium please take extra care on all routes. Fans who use Wainwright Road and the Warndon Trading Estate for the Park and Walk are asked to park sensibly and walk on designated routes that will be stewarded. Fans are also urged to wear suitable clothing and footwear to the game.
The club also has an arrangement with local contractor, AA Salt Services Ltd, to supply salt so we will ensure that the Sixways Stadium site is salted and designated footpaths are clear.
All supporters are advised to continue to check the website and local radio for any changing information in the coming days.
Phil Winstanley, Rugby Director at Premier Rugby said: "Having spoken to Leicester Tigers and Worcester Warriors, I have my fingers crossed that their matches will go ahead. Both clubs have worked exceptionally hard to improve the conditions at their grounds and they, their sponsors, their respective local authorities and the many volunteers who have helped them should be congratulated for the time and effort they have put in.
"With so little sport likely to take place this weekend, I hope that they will be rewarded with good matches and big crowds."
