Player signing session
Members of the London Irish squad will be outside the Megastore at 2pm to meet supporters and sign autographs. The players love to get to know supporters so come and say hi - and don't forget to bring something to get signed!
For the Junior Exiles, Digger’s Dugout will be in the North Stand with free face painting & glitter tattoos, a bouncy castle and games, and you can pick up your free London Irish flag or clap banner.
Head to the Megastore to browse our replica kit, training range and leisure wear, including our new winter range to keep you warm as the weather turns colder. Stuck on stocking filler ideas? We've got you covered! London Irish have released an Official 2018 Calendar, and £1 from every sale goes to the Movember Foundation which supports research into all men's health issues. Pick yours up from the Megastore at the Madejski or at www.londonirishshop.com
Don't forget to pick up your London Irish programme for £4 from the programme sellers outside the Megastore and Gates 1, 7 and 8. This week features a special interview with James Marshall.
Fields of Athenry
In true London Irish tradition, we will of course be singing Fields of Athenry in the lead up to kick-off, this week led by Ronan MacManus. The perfect way to warm up your vocal chords before the game ready to cheer on the team!
To keep you entertained at half-time we’ve got the Poo Ball Challenge, where a pair of competitors race each other across the pitch pushing giant rugby balls. The winner will then get to play the London Irish Lucky Prize Board with the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
Do you have a special occasion coming up? If you would like a message to be shown on the big screen during half-time, please email your message to [email protected] by midnight on Wednesday 22 November.
As well as The Craic being back in the North Stand, the Club Room in the Princess Suite will be open as usual after the game with an acoustic performance from Ronan MacManus. The Man of the Match award will also be presented in the Club Room approximately 40 minutes after the final whistle and there will be a player Q&A.
Offering you access to live commentary throughout the match as well as the chance to listen to the referee's mic, the radios are just £10 and can be used at every Premiership club ground throughout the season. The batteries are replaceable, and they even double up as an FM radio! They will be sold by the London Irish Supporters Club outside the hospitality reception, in the Club Shop and alongside the programmes.
Please be aware that stewards will be carrying out bag checks on entry to the stadium. We encourage you to only bring a bag if necessary and to leave extra time to enter the stadium. Please note that alcohol is not permitted to be brought into the stadium.
