Club Statement: COVID-19

Friday 20th March 2020

Pontypool RFC can confirm that the club has been notified by the Welsh Rugby Union of the cancelation of the 2019-2020 Specsavers National Championship season.

Whilst we are all absolutely devastated that we will not be able to complete the season and realise our dream of achieving promotion to the Indigo Premiership, we fully understand the Welsh Rugby Union’s position and support them in the decision they have reached.

Although today’s decision will be incredibly disappointing for supporters, we would ask everybody connected to Pontypool RFC to support the Welsh Rugby Union at this incredibly challenging time.

We have all worked so hard in recent years to once again make Pontypool RFC a vibrant and successful club, but we recognise that sport must take a backseat until the COVID-19 pandemic has stabilised.

As much as we want to be a Premiership club, it is far more important that our squad, staff, volunteers and supporters remain healthy in the long-term and we would urge everyone to follow the government’s guidance on social distancing and protecting older people and vulnerable adults.

In light of this guidance, Pontypool Park will remain closed and no further club events will take place until further notice.

Please be assured that the club will still be there for all of us to enjoy in the future and we will go again.

Pontypool RFC will issue further comment in due course, but until then, please take care and look after each other in the weeks and months ahead.
