What Is #MyConnachtChampion?
Champions are not just the rugby players on the field. They can be anywhere in the West of Ireland. They’re the people who volunteer with their local club or group, or the parents who spend their nights bringing their kids to training or rehearsals. They are the people who are striving to make the lives of others better, and deserve the recognition as a result.
How Do I Enter?
Send us your nomination on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by tagging us using @ConnachtRugby and the hashtag #MyConnachtChampion. Tell us a bit about the person you’d like to nominate and why they’re a champion in your eyes. If you have a photo or video of your nominee send it in too.
What Do I Win?
The two winning entries, chosen by our judges, will receive two Hospitality Tickets for either the Guinness PRO14 meeting with Scarlets on Saturday 22nd September, or the interprovincial derby with Leinster on Saturday 29th September. These hospitality packages include pre-match food in the Heineken Clubhouse, live pre-match entertainment, match tickets and post-game meet and greet with some of the players. Your winning entry will also be showcased on the big screen at half-time of the game.
When Can I Enter?
You can enter at any time! The winner of the Scarlets tickets will be announced on Thursday 20th September on Connacht Rugby’s social media, while the Leinster ticket winners will be announced a week later, on Thursday 26th September. All nominations submitted prior to the Scarlets game will also automatically be included in selection for the Leinster tickets.
