Connacht Rugby To Get The New Season Underway

It’s that time of year again. The 2018/19 rugby season is about to kick into action, with supporters all over the country brimming with excitement to see what the upcoming season has in store for their team. Here at Intersport Elverys towers as Title Sponsor of Connacht Rugby, we cannot wait to see them back in action, especially as they will be donning their brand new jersey. This year’s jersey maintains its traditional Connacht green look and feel with the introduction of horizontal tonal green and fluro lines, and with fluro piping detailing inspired by the “Grassroots to Green Shirts” vision of Connacht Rugby.

This Saturday the 1st of September, Connacht will face off against Glasgow Warriors in the Guinness PRO14 season opener at 3PM at the Sportsground in Galway and the following week they will also host Zebre. Two home games to start the season will hopefully give the team a good platform to build on, after winning 3 from 3 in pre-season. The first European game of the season will see Bordeaux Begles travel to Galway on the 13th of October. Sale Sharks and Perpignan are the two other teams who’ll make up Connacht’s Challenge Cup group. We are hoping Andy Friend’s men can start the season well and carry on the form throughout the year!

Season Launch

Connacht Rugby had their official season launch with their Season Ticket Members at our Intersport Elverys store, in the Retail Park, Galway. It was a fantastic night and everyone appeared to enjoy it. The season ticket holders were also among the first to find out that Jarrad Butler would replace Connacht legend John Muldoon as the new captain, as the announcement was made on the night.
