Ireland will take on South Africa, Australia and Georgia at the Aviva Stadium during the GUINNESS Series in November this year. Rugby club members can pre-order tickets through their clubs now, while Irish Rugby Supporters Club members will have a priority sale in June.
Ireland open their GUINNESS Series account against South Africa, who are ranked second in the world at present.
There has only been a score between the two teams in the last three meetings at the Aviva Stadium with the spoils going to the visitors on the last two occasions. The game kicks off at 5.30pm on Saturday November 8.
On Sunday, November 16, Ireland welcome Georgia to the Aviva Stadium for the very first time.
Georgia almost broke Irish hearts at the 2007 Rugby World Cup in Bordeaux when a Girvan Dempsey try saved the day. The game in November gets underway at 2.30pm.
The final game of the 2014 GUINNESS Series sees Ewen McKenzie’s Australia team return to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, November 22. The game kicks off at 4.30pm.
Padraig Power, IRFU Commercial and Marketing Director, commented: “We are delighted to announce the 2014 GUINNESS Series fixtures.
“The 2013 GUINNESS Series was a phenomenal success with record tickets sales for the three games and a fantastic atmosphere generated by the fans, which continued throughout the RBS 6 Nations.
“We will again be looking at a variety of ticket option packages for families so that as many people as possible can come and support the RBS 6 Nations champions.
“Our advice to fans is to get their tickets early, as last year those who left it late unfortunately missed out.”
Rory Sheridan, Diageo’s Head of Sponsorship – Western Europe, commented: “We are already looking forward to the visit of Australia, Georgia and South Africa for the 2014 GUINNESS Series this November.
“The 2013 GUINNESS Series delivered fantastic rugby, great excitement, noise and colour to the Aviva Stadium on which the Ireland team continued to build and build and the 2014 Series looks set to deliver the same again.
“Irish rugby continues to deliver great days out and we are proud to be part of the Irish rugby family.”
Tickets for the 2014 GUINNESS Series are now available for order through rugby clubs.
A priority sales window for Irish Rugby Supporters Club members will take place in advance of the public sale opening on Tuesday, June 3.
Ticket prices, value packages and travel offers will be confirmed at a later date.
The 2014 GUINNESS Series matches will be broadcast live by RTÉ and Sky Sports.
