Dublin Gears Up For 2017 GUINNESS PRO12 Final

Dublin is busy gearing up for the biggest GUINNESS PRO12 final ever as Munster and the Scarlets prepare to compete for the Championship trophy at the Aviva Stadium this Saturday (kick-off 6.15pm).

A flurry of activity is going in the capital ahead of the game. An exclusive gig with top band Hermitage Green is brought to fans by Guinness at a secret location on Friday night for competition winners and VIPs, while on the day of the game Herbert Park will play host to the Rugby Zone for families and supporters of all ages.

Twenty-four lucky supporters will also get to experience the GUINNESS PRO12 Final – Fan Experience Area. This will provide fans with the ultimate way to watch the final from a prime location, with unrestricted views close to the pitch in addition to a free gift and VIP drink service.

Guinness have also provided the opportunity for fans to ‘Take Your Local to the Final’. The winning pub will receive access for 24 of its rugby-mad customers to a corporate box which will feel like home after it receives an authentic pub makeover.

On matchday (12pm-6pm), the Rugby Zone will take place – supported by Energia and Mazda – where supporters can test their rugby skills at the Skills Zone, and take part in interactive, fun activities such as speed cages, reaction boards and skills based tests.

Irish Village Markets will provide plenty of tasty food options, there will be live music on the Rugby Zone stage, and a chance to get some insight into the big game from players from the finalist teams.
