Connacht Urge Fans To ‘Front Up, Rise Up And Green Up’

Connacht Urge Fans To ‘Front Up, Rise Up And Green Up’

Connacht Rugby are calling on all of their fans and local businesses to help support their team and turn the province ‘green’ in the lead up to their first Heineken Cup home game against Toulouse on Saturday, November 19..

Join Connacht Rugby’s ‘Green Mile’ heave and show your support for the team by adorning your home, school and place of work with the green of Connacht.

The Green Mile is the route in Galway that runs from Blackrock in Salthill through to the Spanish Arch, Quay Street, Eyre Square, Forster Street; College Road to the Sportsground and down to the Huntsman Inn and the aim is to make this area scream green for Connacht Rugby.

The route gives supporters ownership of Connacht Rugby way beyond the gates of the Sportsground.

You can display the green and show your support by uploading your pictures, videos and messages to the Connacht Rugby Facebook page. The best 100 pictures will be selected for posters to be erected to line the Green Mile.

Media outlets from home and abroad will be focused on Galway in the week of the Connacht v Toulouse game with television crews and photographers descending on the city, giving business owners a great chance to show their support for Connacht on an international stage.

Connacht Rugby want to see ‘Green Miles’ all over the province and are urging fans to create their own Green Mile in each town, village and street.

Do not forget to answer Eric Elwood’s call to arms and upload pictures, videos and messages of support to the Connacht Rugby Facebook Page.

So come on Connacht – it is time to ‘Front Up, Rise Up and Green Up!’ Show your support and give Connacht the drive to beat Toulouse in their first Heineken Cup outing at the Sportsground.
