Ulster Ask Fans To ‘Show Their Support’ Ahead Of Quarter-Final

Ulster Rugby, along with proud sponsors Bank of Ireland, has released a video featuring the Ulster Orchestra, Andrea Begley, Willie John McBride and a host of supporters from right across the province performing a unique rendition of ‘Stand Up for the Ulstermen’.

In the words of Willie John McBride: “When you take on Ulster at Ravenhill, you are not only playing the 15 players on the pitch, you are playing the whole province of Ulster.”

The specially made video encourages fans to ‘show their support’ ahead of the crucial Heineken Cup quarter-final against Saracens at Ravenhill on Saturday, April 5.

Ulster Rugby, in conjunction with Bank of Ireland, are offering fans the chance to win a pair of tickets for the Heineken Cup quarter-final.

There are five pairs up for grabs and to stand a chance of winning a pair, supporters are asked to show their support in the most imaginative way possible.

Whether that is through a tweet, a video, a photograph or a song, Ulster Rugby and Bank of Ireland are looking for a creative and inspiring demonstration of support.

The best entries will be shown on the big screen at Ravenhill before the game on April 5 as the players warm up on the pitch.

A selection of the photographs will also be used on Bank of Ireland’s ’17 years of support’ TV advertisements which will run on UTV in the build up to the game.

To enter, just tweet or Facebook your message, video or photograph using the hashtag #showURsupport or email your entry to standup@ulsterrugby.com using the subject line – showURsupport.

The competition will be open until 5pm on Wednesday, April 2. Terms and conditions are available here.

Meanwhile, in a statement released today, Ulster confirmed that back rower Nick Williams has returned to training following the conclusion of an internal disciplinary process.

Ulster will be making no further comment on the matter.
