With both Ulster and Leinster through to this year’s Heineken Cup final on May 19th an Irish winner is guaranteed leaving the door open for Connacht to qualify as the fourth team from Ireland.
This comes as a huge boost to the club which finished off their first ever Heineken Cup this year with a memorable victory over Harlequins in the Sportsground.
The advent of top flight European rugby in the West of Ireland has seen major changes both within the Sportsground and throughout Galway as thousands of supporters flocked to the city to see Connacht take on Aviva Premiership giants Harlequins and Gloucester as well as French powerhouses Toulouse this season.
Next season promises to be an equally thrilling journey for Connacht as they prepared to enter what has been described as the best club tournament in the world, the Heineken Cup, as well as competing in the RaboDirect PRO12 which supplied three out of the four semi-finalists for this year’s European competition.
Due to the exceptional demand to see some of Europe’s greatest teams in the Sportsground Connacht Rugby season tickets remain the only way to guarantee entry to the three home pool matches, as well as all 11 of Connacht’s home RaboDirect PRO12 games. With limited availability and some sections nearly sold out already supporters are urged to purchase their season tickets early to ensure they can be part of the next step in Connacht Rugby’s history.
Season tickets are available for purchase online at www.connachtrugby.ie or from the Connacht Rugby ticket office in the Sportsground, College Rd, Galway.
