Connacht Thoughts Turn To Next Season

Connacht Thoughts Turn To Next Season

Connacht are in the process of finalising their squad for the 2010/11 season when they will hope to build on the progress made on the campaign just finished.

Eric Elwood will take over from Michael Bradley as Connacht’s director of rugby and the bulk of the squad which did duty in the season just finished have been signed up for the new campaign.

The two most notable absentees are Kiwi number 8 George Naoupu, who is set to join a Japanese club, and Ireland-capped scrum half Kieran Campbell, who is retiring.

A number of positions will be filled over the coming weeks as Connacht look forward to the start of the new season.

With this in mind – and with two Italian teams joining the Magners league – Connacht Rugby is pleased to announce that season tickets will remain at the same price for the 2010/11 season.

This will mean that a ground ticket, which costs just €;225, will cover eleven Magners League games at the Sportsground and the three pool games in the Amlin Challenge Cup.

A season ticket for the enclosed stand will cost just €;275, family tickets are €;375, concessions €;150 and juniors just €;60 for the new campaign.
