On Friday 20th January 2017 London Skolars will host a Wigan Warriors XIII in the annual Capital Challenge match which will, once again, be held at the prestigious Honorable Artillery Company’s ground.
In the heart of the cities financial district, just a few minutes from Old Street and Moorgate station sits the HAC, consisting of an 18th century mansion , five acres of garden and engulfed by many of the distinct city office buildings and landmarks it is truly a magnificent sight to behold and one of the finest fields on which to play rugby. The extraordinary match experience is further enhanced by the fact that there are no stands, fans are encouraged to stand pitch side, just a few feet from the players and enjoy all the thrills of the action.
The Skolars squad is at its most advanced for this time of year in recent memory and will be looking to provide an extremely stern test. With the signings of multiple strong players from fellow southern clubs combined with a few with Super League experience the side has considerable quality. Added to this, the fact they will be fitter than ever having started pre season in November.
The Wigan squad is always guaranteed to be strong, irrespective of the age of the players participating. In fact, it has often proved to be the breeding ground and the first chance for many keen Wigan fans to see their first team’s stars of the future. The likes of Anthony Gelling, Lewis Tierney, Dom Manfredi and England International half back George Williams have all appeared in recent seasons.
If this action wasn’t enough, we also offer a hospitality package beginning prior to kick off at mid day. This is perfect whether you are looking to enjoy a day out in London, entertain clients or network with some of the biggest city firms in business. The hospitality package consists of a three course lunch, wine and this years guest speaker, Mike Ford. Mike Ford is possibly the most appealing guest we’ve had yet, with a glittering playing career in Rugby League and a good start to his union coaching foray, he is also one who speaks his mind which should make for a great Q & A.
So come and join the City’s very own professional rugby league club to mark the start of its 20th season celebrations.
