Connemara Whiskey, the official spirit of Connacht Rugby, has developed a computer kicking game. It is available to play on both www.connachtrugby.ie and www.connemarawhiskey.com.
Judge the wind, distance and power required to drill the ball between the uprights and record a top score over seven levels of increasing difficulty. An integrated scoreboard allows scores recorded on both sites to be merged into one central leaderboard.
Fans will be able to put their kicking skills to the test against some of Connacht’s star players and be in with a chance to win monthly prizes courtesy of Connemara Whiskey.
Connemara Whiskey will also bring the game offline and into bars in Galway city.
Patrons of Connacht’s supporter pubs will get the opportunity to play the game on android tablets, sample Connemara Whiskey and be in with the chance of winning two tickets to Connacht’s Heineken Cup pool match in Toulouse. Look out for the Connemara promotional teams in pubs after home matches.
Jack Teeling, Managing Director of Cooley Distillery, said: “This is a massive year for Connacht Rugby and so far the team has performed admirably.
“We wanted to create something a bit different for the Connacht Clan and with the help of Connacht Rugby we have been able to produce this game for fans and rugby enthusiasts alike.”
Earlier this season Connemara announced an extension to its partnership with Connacht Rugby and unveiled a bespoke hot whiskey kiosk at the Sportsground which will be open for business at all home games.
Connemara Whiskey has created a special hot chocolate whiskey drink to warm the Connacht Clan’s cockles over the course of the season and will also serve the traditional hot toddie consisting of Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, lemon, cloves, sugar and piping hot water.
