Connacht Rugby has received the dates and kick off times for rounds 1 – 4 of this season’s European Rugby Champions Cup.

As previously announced, Pat Lam’s side were drawn in pool 2 with Toulouse, Wasps and Zebre as Connacht return to the premier European competition.

The Guinness PRO12 champions will take on Toulouse in round 1, almost three years since the TOP 14 side were last at the Sportsground. Kick-off is on Saturday October 15th at 5:30pm.

There are back to back matches against Wasps in December with a Sunday lunch time kick off at the Ricoh Arena in round 3 in what will be the first ever competitive meeting between the two teams. Less than a week later, the Premiership side will be in Galway for another Saturday 5:30pm kick off on December 17th.

The dates and kick-off times for rounds 5 and 6 will be confirmed by EPCR after Round 4 in December.

A Connacht Rugby Season Ticket is the only way to guarantee entry to all home Champions Cup games, as well as all 11 GUINNESS PRO12 matches at the Sportsground.

Season Tickets (Adult, Concession and Junior) for the Main Stand can still be purchased online here or by phoning on 091 399 977.
