Ireland fans will be back in Aviva Stadium in July as part of a series of test events announced today.

The IRFU welcome the Government’s announcement of approved pilot events this summer, which include the Ireland Rugby fixtures against Japan and USA in July.

We have been part of the Working Group on return of fans to Stadia, Chaired by Martin Murphy since 2020, and we will now move to our operational plans, based on the proposals submitted by the Working Party to Government and any additional guidance they have provided.

We will make an announcement on ticket distribution as soon as possible and we very much look forward to welcoming supporters back safely to the Aviva Stadium.

Leinster Rugby will also host a test event in June with 1,200 supporters set to attend the game in the RDS against Dragons.
