What to expect

We want every one of our supporters and visiting fans to have a magical experience at The Sportsground. We can't control the weather (yet), but we've done everthing else possible to make it a great day out. 

Why not make a great match into a great day? In partnership with Tribe, we offer some incredible matchday clubhouse hospitality packages. We also offer brilliant food, beverage and matchday experiences at every Connacht Rugby match, so read on below for more! 

To Eat

Connacht Rugby is proud to work with one of the best food and drink providers around in our partner Tribe Hospitality.

To Drink

We have something for everyone's taste at The Sportsground. We have sodas, coffees and hot chocolates available at several spots in the stadium to quench your pre-match thirst. For those looking for an alcoholic beverage, we're proud to work with our official partner Heineken to supply some the best pints in the West.

Clan Stand Side
The Clan Bar - The main Clan Stand bar is located directly opposite the Clan Stand.
The Heineken Clubhouse - The Heineken Clubhouse entrance is located opposite the Clan Stand. The Heineken Clubhouse is open to Season Ticket holders and Hospitality Patrons.

To Do

We'll let the action on the pitch speak for itself, but we are continuously working to improve what we offer in terms of activities before and after kick-off and at half-time too. This includes the ever-present Drumadores, kindly supported by official health and wellbeing partners Laya Healthcare, who will ensure you are always a beat ahead before the game and at half time. We also build the atmosphere with the Connacht Pump Up Playlist, curated by a different player for every match. 

As Connacht vs. Cardiff is our last Home game of the regular season, we'll have a few special events lined up. After the game we'll be celebrating our departing players, and thanking them for everything they've done for us! We'll also have a brilliant competition from our Fuel Partners Corrib Oil. For those who are coming along, you'll get an email detailing everything you need to know and what times. That will land in your inbox the day before the match.
