Connacht Rugby is delighted to announce that tickets for the opening pre-season friendly against FC Grenoble will go on sale this Friday July 9th with a special ‘Power Hour’ offer from 10 – 11am whereby supporters can purchase adult tickets for just €10*!
It’s been ten years since Grenoble last played in Galway when the French side were drawn in the same Challenge Cup pool. Connacht were 19 – 3 winners that day in January 2005 and Michael Swift got over for one of the two tries scored.
Jackman’s side, featuring South African international winger Gio Aplon and Tongan prop Sona Taumalolo will provide Pat Lam and the coaching team an opportunity to test their players against different opposition. Supporters can also look forward to watching young Ireland-born players James Hart, Chris Farrell and Denis Coulson in action.
Details on Connacht’s pre-season friendly with Munster will also be confirmed this week.
*Limited number of tickets available in the ‘Power Hour’ offer. Once the allocation has been purchased, tickets will revert to the full price of €20 for adults, €15 concession, and €5 for juniors. Tickets for the enclosed area start at €30.
