On Saturday 7th September, Heathrow Express was proud to be Match Day Sponsor of the Aviva Premiership Rugby London Double Header.
The London Double Header; the showpiece start to the rugby season which is now in its tenth year; saw the opening weekend of the 2013/2014 Aviva Premiership Rugby Season. The four London clubs played to a crowd of 65,000 at Twickenham Stadium, which saw Saracens and Harlequins claim the victory. The final scores were:
London Irish 20 – Saracens 42
London Wasps 15 – Harlequins 16
As part of our commitment to supporting rugby we also sponsored the London Festival of Rugby, which took place on the morning of the 7th September at Richmond College. The festival saw 30 teams of Under 8 rugby players from all over the South East of England (including teams from Rosslyn Park, Harpenden, Hertford and as far afield as Kent + Oxfordshire) competed for places to play on the hallowed Twickenham turf during half time of the Premiership games played later that afternoon.
