Falcons Launch Platinum Memberships

Wednesday 24 September 2014 Written by: Adam

Newcastle Falcons today unveiled their new Platinum Memberships that guarantee individuals access to every England home International (excluding Rugby World Cup) game for the next 5 years. The Membership Scheme covers every Autumn International and Six Nations Game at Twickenham between November 2014 – April 2019. It gives the member the right to buy at face value within pre-determined price categories.

The increased access to International tickets comes after more than 500 International tickets have been made available to Falcons season ticket holders for the 2014-15 season. It further emphasises the club’s commitment to give far more access to supporters and individuals affiliated to Newcastle Falcons. It ensures regular access to watch the national team without having to pay for corporate hospitality.

The Platinum memberships are available in three price categories depending on which value of ticket is required. The one off Platinum membership fee is payable upfront and then gives the member the right to buy a ticket for each Autumn International and Six Nations Game at face value. The prices of the three categories are

– Premium Category Tickets – £400 per year plus VAT x 5 years = £2,000 plus VAT total
– Category A/B Tickets – £300 per year plus VAT x 5 years = £1,500 plus VAT total
– Category C/D Tickets – £240 per year plus VAT x 5 years = £1,200 plus VAT total

As well as access to tickets for every England home game (RWC matches cannot be included) Platinum Members will get an invite to an exclusive event per year with the Falcons players, an invite with West Stand Bar passes to one Falcons game per season and a members pin badge. There is no limit to the number of memberships that can be bought by an individual. Every membership secures one ticket per England game.

Speaking about the initiative Marketing Director Keith Christie said

“The new Platinum membership gives unrivalled regular access to all England home games for the next five years. It will not in any way compromise our ongoing commitment to make large numbers of England tickets available to season tickets via our ballot. Platinum Membership offers those supporters who wish to watch England at Twickenham on a regular basis the ability to do so. With the Rugby World Cup kicking off in less than twelve months’ time demand to watch international rugby will be at an all-time high. Falcons Platinum members can guarantee their place at Twickenham.”
