Connacht Rugby is delighted to announce that it will host two pre-season fixtures in preparation for the 2015/16 season.
First up, Pat Lam’s men will welcome Top 14 side FC Grenoble to the Sportsground on Friday 7th August (kick off time to be confirmed).
Bernard Jackman’s side have enjoyed a successful season in the Top 14 with impressive victories over powerhouses Racing Metro, Stade Francais and Toulouse. Former Connacht captain and lock forward Andrew Farley, who played six seasons with the province, is currently team manager with the French club.
On August 21st, the Connacht supporters will have the chance to witness an additional mouth-watering interpro clash when nearest rivals Munster come to town. With the New Year’s Day victory still fresh in the memory and Ireland hopefuls going head-to-head, this fixture is sure to attract plenty of interest.
Remember, the best way to secure your place at these fixtures and all season is to get your Season Ticket now.
The renewal period for current Season Ticket holders is open until Monday 27th April.
