Connacht Rugby will kick off the new United Rugby Championship season away to Ulster with the fixtures for the 2022-23 campaign being officially announced today.

The season begins on the weekend of Friday 16 September up in Belfast which is then followed by Round 2 and 3 trips away to South Africa.

The second away game of the URC season we take on DHL Stormers in Cape Town before making the trip North to take on the Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria.

After the opening three away trips our next three matches are at home on our brand new pitch with two massive Inter-pro games back-to-back in Round 4 and 5 with Munster and Leinster coming to The Sportsground.
