Saracens FC to Stage Mini Tour

Aviva Premiership side Saracens FC are considering the prospect of staging a mini tour for the home games of the club at the beginning of next season before the club completes its move to Copthall, which is likely to be completed by the middle of February, 2013.

According to the reports that have been received, the 2010-11 Aviva Premiership champions are expected to play in five matches at Mill Hill, the site of their new home and along with that, will also be playing a couple of games at the Wembley Stadium.

With the double header at London in Twickenham being considered as a home game for the Men in Black, the club still has to finalize a venue for as many as eight home games. Saracens FC are very keen to stage two of these home games at Vicarage Road, but are also keen to take the other home games to territories where rugby is yet to put in a strong foothold and therefore, be the torchbearer for those regions. The plan of the club is to take the game and the club to areas such as Kent and Essex and thereby, increase the popularity of the club in these regions.

It is understood that the Men in Black are also looking at possibilities of holding their home matches at Charlton Athletic as well as Southend United. The club is extremely ambitious and they are also expected to lobby for a home game in South Africa in 2013 after their bid to hold a group stage game of the Heineken Cup in Cape Town fell through in the previous season.

Saracens FC are still in talks with other clubs at the moment about the staging of their home games and expect to announce something concrete as soon as things look promising.
