It’s matchweek at The Sportsground where Connacht host the Toyota Cheetahs in Round 4 of the 2018/19 Guinness PRO14.
The game promises to be an entertaining affair, with the Cheetahs looking to extend their lead at the top of Conference A and Connacht aiming for three wins on the bounce.
Here’s the latest ticket update for those thinking of coming along to the game:

  • The Enclosure is SOLD OUT.
  • Tickets for the Main Stand and Grant Thornton Seated Stand are almost gone, with very limited availability in both sections.
  • As always the Clan Stand is not on general sale, but is available to those who wish to purchase or upgrade a Gold Hospitality ticket. This includes food & drink in the Heineken Rugby Clubhouse, live music & entertainment, a complimentary match programme and more.
  • There is general availability in the Bohermore & College Road Ends.

With the interpros over for another few months, attention now turns to Europe where Connacht host Sale Sharks in a crucial Challenge Cup tie at The Sportsground this weekend.
Both teams have won 3 of their 4 pool games so far, so the game will go a long way to deciding who will emerge as pool winners and qualify for the quarter-finals.
As expected there is a huge level of interest in the game, with just a limited number of tickets available in certain areas of the ground.

A small number of tickets remain available in the Main Stand, while there is general availability in the Bohermore Road Terrace. The Clan Stand, Grant Thornton Stand, Enclosure and College Road Terrace are all not available, while hospitality tickets have also sold out.

Tickets are now available for two home games towards the latter stages of the 2018/19 Guinness PRO14.
On Saturday 16th February (k/o 5pm) we play host to the Cheetahs, and then two weeks later on Saturday 2nd March (k/o 2.45pm) the Ospreys pay a visit to the Sportsground.
Both Cheetahs and the Ospreys are in Conference A alongside Connacht, so the ties will go a long way to deciding the make-up of the final table. That means your support will be required more than ever.

Connacht will compete in pool 5 of next season’s European Challenge Cup alongside Brive, Worcester Warriors and Oyonnax after today’s draw in Switzerland.

Six tough encounters await Connacht as they renew acquaintances with Brive and Worcester and face Oyonnax for the first time.

The four previous meetings with Brive saw Connacht pick up one win while they have beaten Worcester Warriors twice at the Sportsground and lost on both visits to Sixways.

Brive finished eighth in the Top14 last season and were knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the Challenge Cup while Oyonnax captured the Pro D2 title.

Worcester battled their way to an 11th place finish in the Premiership and were beaten twice by Brive in the pool stages of last year’s competition.

The five pool winners and three best-placed runners-up qualify for the quarter-finals.
