Newcastle, United Kingdom, December 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Newcastle Falcons are set to welcome Petrarca Padova to town on January 15th, and with many fans of both teams likely to stay over after the match, DirectRooms.com is recommending advance booking if you want a hotel in Newcastle city centre
Newcastle’s Kingston Park is the venue for the match, and with the stadium boasting a capacity of 10,000, the local hotels and restaurants can expect a busy time of it.
Petrarca Padova are one of the biggest and best-followed rugby teams in Italy and can be expected to bring a decent sized away fan base with them. Newcastle Falcons boast England’s kicker and fly-half Jonny Wilkinson in their ranks, meaning that their home matches almost always sell out.
Newcastle has developed a large following in the years since they were formed in 1996. The club has grown from humble beginnings as Gosforth FC to be a huge draw for rugby union fans these days.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head of DirectRooms.com, commented, “The northeast is quite a hotbed of rugby these days, despite traditionally being a region known more for its soccer. As such its glamour rugby matches like this one attract big crowds and can put a strain on the local hotel trade. Our advice is to book early for this one to be sure you get a good value room in the hotel you want."
