Equipment and Atmosphere

The club has invested in a new High Definition Projector and Audio System so that you can enjoy the games with crystal clear picture and sound. The main attraction of watching the games at Preston Grasshoppers is that you’ll be able to experience the game in a true rugby atmosphere. Anyone who watched the climax of the 2015 6 Nations tournament in Hoppers will be able to testify to that! You really must make sure you experience the Rugby World Cup with a proper rugby atmosphere and we’re the only venue in Preston that can offer that!

Spread the Word

The club would appreciate as much help as possible in spreading the word throughout Preston that Preston Grasshoppers is THE place to watch the World Cup. To help with this, we’ve linked three different posters below that we’d ask members to print off and display in their place of work or school. Copies are available to collect from the club office. Another way in which members can help is by sharing this web page on social media so that it is seen by as many of their friends as possible.
