Exeter Chiefs to host Scarlets in Anglo-Welsh Clash
Chiefs to Host Scarlets in International Window Friendly
Exeter Chiefs will take on United Rugby Championship side, Scarlets in a friendly match at Sandy Park in the 2024 Guinness Six Nations international window.
Game tickets prices will start from just £5 for U16s and £10 for Adults while Season Ticket Holders can enjoy the game as part of their season package.
The match – which will take place on Saturday, February 10 at 14:30 – will allow the Chiefs faithful to have an exciting game of rugby to watch live as the Six Nations competition introduces a break into the Gallagher Premiership season.
Following the game on Sandy Park turf, fans will be able to gather in the bars around the Devon stadium to watch the international sides take on the mantel as England host Wales at Twickenham Stadium.
Scarlets’ visit will provide Director of Rugby Rob Baxter with a valuable opportunity to see first team, Academy and players returning from injury in action.
“I am delighted that we have been able to secure the game against Llanelli Scarlets, one of the most famous names in Welsh rugby. Their visit to Sandy Park is something to really look forward to, especially as England against Wales in the Guinness Six Nations will follow the game and we can all look forward to a beer together watching the game – hopefully with some Scarlets supporters who make the journey down.”
“It would be great to make it a well-supported day of English versus Welsh rugby and I know the club are looking at some great ticket deals to make the game as accessible to our supporters as possible.”
“The timing of the fixture will also mean that both teams are likely to play their strongest available teams as we run into the Premiership Rugby Cup semi final and Scarlets move into URC action – this is why we are both looking for a fixture and so it should create a really good game.”
The two sides last met on an early November 2017 afternoon at Parc y Scarlets for an Anglo Welsh Cup clash which ended 0-40 in the Chiefs’ favour. Of the Chiefs men playing that evening, four are with the 2023/24 squad – Alec Hepburn, Stu Townsend, Ollie Devoto and Tom Hendrickson.
