Ulster Rugby has launched a campaign – #maketwickenhamhome – aimed at encouraging its supporters to attend the Heineken Cup quarter-final on 6th April.
Ulster will play Saracens at Twickenham in the match after the English Premiership side won the right to host the game by finishing above Ulster in the Heineken Cup Pool standings. However, despite it being an away fixture, Ulster Rugby hopes that many of its fans will make the trip to the game and help bring a bit of Ravenhill to West London.
As part of the campaign launch, Ulster Rugby released a video featuring famous Ulster supporters including Sky News Presenter Eamonn Holmes, Darts players Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor and Raymond Van Barneveld, four-time European Tour winner, Michael Hoey, 1948 Grand Slam winner, Jack Kyle, Northern Ireland and West Brom footballer, Chris Brunt and double-Olympic bronze medal winner, Paddy Barnes, who all encouraged fans to #maketwickenhamhome.
The video also featured several members of the Ulster squad, discussing how much they value the club’s support both at Ravenhill and at away games.
The video was released at 9pm last night and has already been viewed more than 10,000 times.
