MEDIA RELEASE ……………………………….

The Central Coast Rugby Union Board met last night to discuss the 2020 Final Series, including the Grand Final. The Board then met with the CCRU Clubs to announce these decisions.

The first three weeks of the Final series, which will be played at Woy Woy Oval, will be a closed venue. There will be no spectators allowed into the venue with only players and officials gaining entry. This decision was necessary because of the current covid restrictions of a maximum of 500 people attending these events. This 500 person limit includes everyone, even players and officials. These three days of Finals will be live streamed through the CCRU youtube channel. Details on this will be distributed later.

The Grand Final on the 10th October will be at Central Coast Stadium. As a ticketed venue, Central Coast Stadium will allow up to 4,000 spectators to attend. All tickets will need to be purchased pre match through Ticketek and further details on this sale process will be notified closer to the event. No tickets will be available at the gate. The Stadium will allow the CCRU to conduct the Grand Final in a safe and well resourced environment, and allow the Zone to meet all covid restrictions. It will also allow fans to be an active part of the day.

The CCRU will continue to follow the direction of the NSW Health Act and NSW Rugby in regards to covid restrictions, and of course if there are any further changes in these restrictions, additional notifications may be necessary.

Larry Thomson,
CCRU President.
