European Rugby Champions Cup play-offs at Gloucester on May 24


Gloucester Rugby

Following the conclusion of the Guinness Pro 12 regular season yesterday, Connacht Rugby have qualified for the European Rugby Champions Cup play-offs and will face Gloucester at Kingsholm on Sunday May 24th (kick off 3:30pm).

It's a repeat of the recent European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final, which Gloucester edged by 14 points to 7 on their way to lifting the trophy.

Connacht's participation looked in doubt when they trailed the Ospreys by 24 points at one stage, with Edinburgh leading Leinster at Murrayfield and the Scarlets clinching victory in Treviso.

However, Connacht battled back to clinch a losing bonus point while Edinburgh fell away against Leinster. As a result, Connacht took seventh spot in the table by two points ahead of Edinburgh.

The winner of this game will then face a final play-off game against a team from the French Top 14 - this opponent is yet to be determined.

The fixture on March 24th will not form part of the season ticket package. The pricing will be as for an Aviva Premiership fixture, however, Club Members will be entitled to a £5 discount per ticket as well as the £5 Early Bird discount while will be valid until 6:30pm on Thursday May 21st.

Tickets are available to purchase online now, while the Ticket Office at Kingsholm will be open from 9am on Monday. Call 0871 871 8781 or visit in person!
