Connacht Rugby are looking forward to hosting our exclusive Season Ticket Holder event this Friday at 4pm where you as a Season Ticket holder and a friend will have exclusive access to meet the entire squad and have photos taken with the players and the PRO12 Trophy. See below for some important event updates.

Due to unavoidable changes to the team’s training schedule there has been a change to the format of the event. There will be no longer be a training session as part of the event. This means that the entire squad and team management will have more time to partake in skills sessions for children and activities for adults.

Commenting on the event, Head Coach Pat Lam said:

“With a few niggles to our squad, we’ve had to make some changes to our training schedule this week and while we won’t have our big hit out on Friday, we’re looking forward to having more time with our Season Ticket holders. The team will get a chance to do skills sessions and games with the children which they love doing, and the new players will get to meet the supporters ahead of the first game next week.” – Pat Lam

There has also been an addition to the event schedule and we are excited to announced that in conjunction with BLK and Intersport Elverys we will be launching our Alternative Jersey at the event this Friday. Be the first to see the players in the alternate kit and you can purchase yours before anyone else whilst enjoying 10% off all purchases at Intersport Elverys at the Sportsground.

You will also be joined by the team and management for a questions and answers session and this season’s new players will introduce themselves to you. You will have the opportunity to have jerseys and other memorabilia signed and have your photo taken with the players,  Eddie the Eagle and the Guinness PRO12 Trophy.

There will be prizes to be won throughout the afternoon including the opportunity to be the mascot and run onto the pitch with the captain, the opportunity to carry the Guinness PRO12 Trophy out onto the pitch and be interviewed before the opening game of the season and the chance to bring the Guinness PRO12 Trophy to your place of work accompanied by a member of the winning squad.

Join us and the Guinness PRO12 Trophy at this exclusive Season Ticket holder event and mark the start to what promises to be an exciting season.
