The 2013/14 Heineken Cup kicks off in just two weeks’ time and Connacht open their campaign by welcoming English Premiership side Saracens to the Sportsground on Friday 11th October, KO 8pm.

A week later, Pat Lam’s men will travel to Parma in Italy to take on familiar opponents Zebre, a team who logged their first ever win in all competition last weekend against Cardiff Blues.

Last autumn, Connacht supporters enjoyed the Italian hospitality in the beautiful town of Parma for both RaboDirect PRO12 and Heineken Cup clashes, and, no doubt, more groups will make the journey this season to cheer on the boys in green.

Connacht Rugby has a number of Heineken Cup tickets for Zebre v Connacht on Saturday 19th October in Italy. These are located in the North Stand of Stadio XXV Aprille. Tickets are €10 each and are available from the Connacht Rugby office during opening hours (Mon – Fri, 9am – 5pm).
