After the game, the Official Connacht Supporters Club will be holding a forum with a number of Connacht players in the Clan Bar as well as presenting their choice of Senior Player and Young Player of the Year awards, making the whole day an event not to be missed.
Connacht’s newly-appointed head of marketing Alex Saul said: “It’s great to throw the doors open to the younger fans and to give something back to the community.
“We pride ourselves on being a child friendly business with initiatives such as free admission to the majority of our RaboDirect PRO12 matches and our great value family Season Ticket.
“We’re all looking forward to welcoming the next generation of Connacht fans and players to the Sportsground on Saturday.
“Our previous Family Fun Days have been a huge success and it’s a great way for supporters to interact with the squad and bring their kids along for a great day out. All we need now is for the weather to be good to us!”
