Falcons prepare to Bring the Noise again!

Thursday 18 December 2014 Written by: Adam

Following confirmation from Newcastle City Council that the Falcons recent ‘Bring the Noise’ game against Gloucester set a record for the world’s loudest club rugby crowd, the Falcons have announced their intention to break their own record during February’s game against Wasps.

Back in November, over 6,500 fans cheered the Falcons on to a 20-10 victory against Gloucester Rugby. Official information from Newcastle City Council has now arrived to confirm that the 118 decibels created as Sinoti’s try went over has set a record for the world’s loudest club rugby crowd.

Having staked its place in the record books once, the club is looking to do it again and is asking fans to help break their own record at the game against Wasps on Friday 20th February with the launch of ‘Bring the Noise 2’.

Newcastle Falcons Managing Director Mick Hogan said: “Our fans put in a fantastic shift at the game against Gloucester and we’re very grateful to them for helping to put Newcastle Falcons in the record books.

“However, we know that they can do even better! For February’s game against Wasps we’ll be looking to attract an even bigger crowd and make even more noise to hopefully break our own record and, more important, cheer the team on to another big win! The more people we have there the better our chances will be.

“With the match live on BT Sport we’re looking to show not the whole of the UK exactly what North East rugby fans can do. 2015 is a huge year for the sport in Newcastle with the Rugby World Cup happening in October. Bring the Noise 2 will be part of a great twelve months.”

Bring the Noise 2 will see Newcastle Falcons repeat many of the additional activities and tactics which helped create such a fantastic atmosphere at the Gloucester game, although there will be a number of changes too.

Hogan continued: “We put a lot of effort into creating a great Friday night of entertainment for rugby fans during our last Bring the Noise game and the Wasps match will be no different. We’re already looking to source entertainment and other activities to provide an even bigger atmosphere on the night.

“We will also be making a number of changes though, including limiting commentary to stoppages in play, which was something a number of fans commented on last time around.”

Tickets for the game against Wasps are already on sale, starting from only £15 for adults and £7.50.

Meanwhile the Falcons’ next home game sees them take on Saracens in their Aviva Premiership festive fixture on 27th December.
