Champions Cup draw confirmed

Connacht have been drawn in Pool 1 of the 2023/24 Champions Cup along with the champions of England, Saracens.

The draw for the 2023/24 Champions Cup took place today with Connacht being drawn in Pool 1 where we will face Bordeaux Begles, Bristol Bears, Lyon and Saracens.

The fixtures are to follow but tickets for our two home games in this competition can be secured by becoming a Season Ticket holder.

There will be no matches between clubs from the same league, so for the purposes of creating the fixtures, each club will play four matches against four different clubs who are not from the same league either home or away during the pool stage.

At the conclusion of the pool stage, the four highest-ranked clubs from each pool will qualify for the Round of 16 and the clubs ranked number five in each of the pools will qualify for the knockout stage of the EPCR Challenge Cup.
