The Ireland Under-19 team to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill this Saturday afternoon (kick-off 2.30pm) has been announced.
Over 1,000 season tickets were sold on Monday and Tuesday alone and sales have now easily surpassed those achieved in renewal windows in the previous two seasons.
Connacht Rugby's head of marketing & commercial Alex Saul spoke about the encouraging numbers, stating: "We were a bit later in opening up our Season Ticket campaign this year but despite that we've already surpassed the number of sales at this point last year.
"We've had over 2,300 fans sign up for next season, which is fantastic. The initial indications are that it will be another fantastic year at the turnstiles for Connacht Rugby.
"Our Season Ticket holders are the lifeblood of Connacht Rugby and that family is growing every year. We worked hard to create a really attractive package whilst balancing the province's needs to continue our growth and development.
"The reaction so far has shown that people can see the incredible value that's on offer here."
The pre-registration list has also been very successful with people who did not hold a Season Ticket last year clambering to register their interest to avail of some very competitive early bird prices.
"Our exclusive renewals offer for current Season Ticket holders finished on Wednesday and we're now selling to an exclusive pre-registration list of 300 people. These fans are able to guarantee the best sections available at the best prices," explained Saul.
"All in all, it's been an exceptional few weeks and we expect some sections of the ground, like the popular Clan Terrace, to sell out before the end of the month."
