    The crowd for the Premier League final between the Saracens and the Sale Sharks at Twickenham will be rewarded by spectators who buy tickets for as little as £2.

    Telegraph Sport understands that promotional links designed to get free tickets for Blue Light cardholders – people working in services and emergency response areas such as the Coast Guard – were distributed outside of this target audience via social media and WhatsApp on throughout most of this event. week until Friday noon.

    As a result, online users were allowed to purchase tickets through the official website without paying more than £2 per booking, until promotional codes no longer work or the link began to redirect to regular prices. Doctors, nurses and prison officers are among those eligible for Blue Light Cards.

    Premiership Rugby insiders are hoping to see around 60,000 spectators in the stadium for the domestic decider, which will see the top two regular season clubs face each other.

    Such a figure would represent the lowest ever result Premier League finals, with the exception of two affected by Covid restrictions in 2020 and 2021, as Leicester Tigers beat Gloucester 44–16 in 2007 in front of 59,400 players.

    It was reported that 16 years ago, the Rugby Union asked that the newly renovated south stand be left empty for this match, as the Heineken Cup final was also played here a week later. The following year, Wasp's victory over Leicester was attended by 81,600 people.

    An attendance of 60,000, which can be explained in part by the relatively small following of Saracens and Sale compared to clubs like Leicester, would be over 12 000 less. of the 72,748 people who watched the Tigers defeat Mark McCall's team thanks to a goal scored by Freddie Burns a year ago.
