Japan will host Ireland at Ecopa Stadium in Shizuoka on Saturday, 17th June, with the second Test at Tokyo’s Ajinomoto Stadium a week later.

“Having this summer’s Irish rugby tour exclusively live shows our commitment to the game of rugby ahead of the RWC 2019. We are delighted to play our part in the build-up to what will be a highly anticipated World Cup and one we are delighted to have on eir Sport. We are also hugely excited for the Women’s Rugby World Cup later this summer and will be supporting the Women’s team as they hope to make history this August.”
