Cornish Pirates announced today that they have suspended sales of covered seating tickets for the visit of London Welsh to the Mennaye Field on Sunday February 16 (3.45pm).
This is because of damage caused to the Jewson Stand, opposite the main grandstand, during Tuesday night’s storms.
Pirates spokesman Phil Westren said: “We are in the process of arranging repairs to this area.
“However, due to the nature of the damage and the specialist nature of the work required, we are uncertain at this time as to how this will affect our capacity, especially for the game against London Welsh.
“We expect the game to go ahead, but in the meantime supporters will hopefully understand that covered seating ticket sales have been suspended; although standard ground/terrace tickets are on sale as usual.
“A further statement will follow in due course.”
Westren added: “We are pleased to report that the new marquee at the Mennaye Field is currently being erected and will be open for the London Welsh game.
“Huge credit must be given to Blue Sky Events for all of their hard work and commitment in getting this facility back to work in such a short space of time, following the devastation of the old marquee.”
