Chief Executive Richard FitzGerald said: 'We wanted to make this an anniversary to remember and spreading events over a whole weekend will be a fantastic way to celebrate the greatest achievement in the club's history. We know there are players who now live on the other side of the world but we're doing everything we can to help them get here and we're hoping for a strong turnout from the players, coaches and staff who made this famous victory possible.'
