URC campaign to begin with trip to Cardiff
A new era has been unveiled with the release of the 2021/22 fixtures for the United Rugby Championship.

Connacht begin their campaign away to Cardiff on Friday 24th September (k/o 7.35pm) before a run of 4 games out of 5 at The Sportsground, starting with the visit of South African side the Bulls on Friday 1st October.

Our first interpro comes away to Munster on Saturday 16th October before we take on Ulster the following weekend.

In a change from previous years there will be two Christmas interpros, with a trip to Ulster on St. Stephen's Day followed by the visit of Munster to The Sportsground on New Year's Day.

Days and k/o times have been confirmed for the opening 10 rounds (full fixtures below), with further info on Rounds 11 onwards to be confirmed at a later date.

Full ticketing info for Season Ticket holders will be confirmed next week following the publication of the latest Government roadmap on the easing of restrictions.
