Championship action returns to Goldington Road this Saturday 21st September as Bedford Blues welcome Ealing Trailfinders in the first round of the Cup competition (KO 3pm).  Save £4 and book tickets online here.

The Blues have finished third in the league table two years on the trot, with Ealing pipping them to second on both occasions, giving Mike Rayer’s men plenty of motivation ahead of the first competitive bout this weekend.

Added to that, Bedford managed a terrific home win over Ben Ward’s charges last season, and will be hunting a similar result to kick start the season.

Bedford Blues are delighted to appoint EatSport as their new hospitality catering partner for the 2019/20 season across all match day venues; including the Lifesure Suite, Blues Marquee, SDC Suite and Larry Webb Room.

The Club would also like to thank Doreen Lambert, who has been the Blues’ long-standing catering partner, and has chosen to retire after decades of service to the Bedford community.

Bedford’s pre-season campaign may have come to an end with a 14-39 defeat to Cardiff Blues, but there were plenty of positives for the home side to take into the coming season which kicks off against Ealing Trailfinders in the Championship Cup next weekend.

The visitors had raced into a 29-0 halftime lead, but the Blues never gave up and scored two well-worked tries after the interval through Jordan Onojaife and Joe Wrafter to ensure fans went home happy.

Bedford Blues are delighted to reveal their brand new home kit for the 2019/20 season at today’s home match against Cardiff Blues (Kick 4pm).

Modelled by fan favourite and Bedford’s own Rich Lane, with new signings Sam Leeming and Grayson Hart, the new home shirt goes back to basics with a solid navy base with sky blue trims and collar.

Both kits are again manufactured by the club’s kit partner Zoo Sports, boasting a traditional style representing our history and heritage which is hoped to prove popular with supporters.

With this brand new Championship season comes a brand new way to explore what goes on at Goldington Road with the arrival of the official Bedford Blues Podcast.

Led by Bedford’s own MC Sam Roberts and his son William, the exclusive podcast will go behind the scenes at the Blues and get to know all your favourite players.

In this month’s first episode, Josh Buggea and Lewis Robling talk to Sam Roberts at the Park Pub and Kitchen about pre-season, the Rugby World Cup and the pressures on every player’s mental health.

Bedford Blues are delighted to announce that they have been selected to host the International Women’s clash between England and Italy on Saturday 23rd November 2019 (KO 3pm).

Goldington Road will open its gates to Simon Middleton’s charges as they prepare to face the Azzurri in the Quilter Autumn International series which also sees the Red Roses taking on France twice. Tickets are already available online.
