Coventry Rugby is delighted to announce a new pre-season fixture ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. Welsh Indigo Premiership side, Merthyr RFC, will visit the Butts Park Arena on Saturday 13th August, KO 3pm – serving as our first pre-season match, followed by the Brimingham Moseley clash a week later. 

Merthyr RFC boast a proud history as 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 Welsh Premiership Champions, they also possess a National Cup title to their name from 2018, and will provide a tough first test for our new Coventry squad.  

Coventry Rugby Head Coach, Alex Rae, is looking forward to his side’s first test of the new season: “This should be a really good challenge for the group. Merthyr have got some really good experience in their squad made up of ex-Welsh internationals and former Pro14 players. It’s always good to get games against teams and clubs that you don’t know especially well, and we’re looking forward to welcoming their players and fans to Butts Park.”

Tickets for the fixture will be £10 for adults, and £3 for U16s – all are on sale now. This game will also be included with all Season Membership packages. 

We look forward to welcoming Merthyr RFC to the BPA, and we can’t wait to see all you Cov fans for our first bit of action ahead of the 2022/23 Championship season.
