Officials from the Melbourne Rebels - the Super 15's newest side - visited the home of the Warriors last month to tour the facilities and meet with Head Coach Richard Hill as they look to firm up details of a playing tour to the British Isles.
The fixture could see world class players such as fly half superstar Danny Cipriani, Australian legends Stirling Mortlock and Mark Gerrard, plus Wales international Gareth Delve and former England ace Michael Lipman all in action at Sixways.
The highly anticipated fixture would be an eye-catching start to the pre-season campaign as supporters get a first glimpse of Richard Hill's men - and our summer signings - ahead of the return to the Aviva Premiership.
Charlie Little, General Manager at Warriors, said: "We are delighted to inform our supporters that we are in discussions with the Melbourne Rebels to bring them to Sixways for a real showpiece fixture to kick-off our pre-season plans.
"We've been visited by officials representing the Rebels who were very impressed by the facilities we have here at Sixways and have stated they are now keen to secure an evening fixture with the Warriors on Monday, August 15.
"We are aware that many fans are now in the process of planning summer holidays and so we are keen to give them as much opportunity as possible to know that this game is likely to go ahead so they can keep such a big date in our club's history clear.
"The game will be an all pay fixture due to the costs involved in bringing a touring team over to England. However, Season Ticket holders that renew by the end of July, allowing us time to process their details ahead of the game, will get a beneficial price."
Full ticketing details for game with Melbourne Rebels will be announced in due course. For details on Season Tickets call the Warriors Box Office on 01905 454183.
