Worcestershire Rapids have brought forward the start time of this Sunday’s Vitality Blast clash with Yorkshire Vikings at Blackfinch New Road.

The July 15 game had originally been scheduled to begin at 2.30pm but will now get underway at 1.00pm

This will give spectators the opportunity to remain after watching the table-topping Rapids in action and then view football’s World Cup final on screens in the Graeme Hick Pavilion and the Sports Bar.

The World Cup final in Moscow – between France and Croatia – kicks off at 4pm.

There is also a change of start time to two of the Rapids home Vitality Blast matches next month.

The meeting with Durham Jets at Blackfinch New Road on Friday, August 3 will now have a 4.30pm start time rather than 5.30pm.

The Rapids meeting with visiting Derbyshire Falcons on Thursday, August 9 will also begin at 4.30pm instead of 5.30pm.
