Bath will face Leicester Tigers at Twickenham next April in a Premiership fixture being billed as 'The Clash'.

Adjoining the stadium, ‘The Forum’ – a three-zoned mini-city – will bring the Best of Bath to Twickenham, with a feast of food and drink, stage acts, the opportunity to meet Bath players past and present, the ‘Tunnel of Noise’ on a grander scale and a whole host of family entertainment.

Within the stadium itself, a pre-match show featuring music and pyrotechnics will build as the players enter the arena for the onset of what promises to be one of the biggest rugby clashes of the season on April 8, 2017.

“Everyone at the club is incredibly excited about 'The Clash',” said Managing Director Tarquin McDonald.

“We decided to take one of our games and put it on a bigger stage so that the wider supporter base we have can enjoy a fantastic day at a Bath game they may not get to see ordinarily.

"From a rugby point of view, it will also provide the players with the opportunity to play in an international stadium and will be a fantastic experience for them.

“This isn’t just a day for Bath supporters: we’re putting on a superb, affordable family day out that will have lots of fun and entertainment for all ages, with the added bonus of a fantastic game of rugby as the centrepiece.”
