Pre-season 2024/25 confirmed

Preparations are already underway behind the scenes to get the team ready for the new season, and Pontypridd RFC can now confirm its 2024/25 pre-season itinerary.

Once again the Sardis 7s tournament is back this summer and as per the last two seasons, it will kick the Club’s pre-season off in style. The 2024 Sardis 7s will take place over three consecutive days at Sardis Road from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th July 2024, with the Senior Leg taking place on the Saturday.

Then on Friday 2nd August the fifteen-a-side form of the sport kicks in and we welcome a Ponty legend back to Sardis Road when Dafydd Lockyer’s Abercwmboi RFC come to town, kick-off will be 7:30pm.

The following Saturday 10th August we hit the road to picturesque West Wales to play Tenby United RFC. The match at Heywood Lane will kick-off at 2:00pm and the reason for the slightly earlier than usual start is an exciting one – the afternoon will be a double-header with Ponty Youth playing Tenby Youth straight after the conclusion of the senior match. The Youth match will kick-off at 4:00pm.

Saturday 17th August sees the Valley Commandos return to Sardis Road for an Anglo-Welsh clash against Cinderford RFC, kick-off at 3:00pm. Last season the two clubs locked horns in pre-season in the Forest of Dean and it was Ponty that edged a points fest by 40-34 – let’s hope for similar entertainment this August. On top of the rugby action during this particular afternoon, there will also be a supporters Meet The Players BBQ Event at the ground. We are also hoping to bring you more news for this day – watch this space.

Pontypridd RFC’s pre-season schedule then draws to a close the following Saturday 24th August against old foes Cardiff RFC. The only thing ‘friendly’ about this fixture will be its name on paper as the two old rivals ramp up the intensity in their preparations ahead of their respective competitive league campaigns in the proceeding weeks.

What an exciting five weeks in store for everyone connected to Pontypridd RFC…
