“As a kid, you dream about walking out on the Aviva turf in a green jersey. You don’t dare imagine what it must be like, yet you do. You wonder how your chest could contain the pride as you take in the colour, the noise, the passion bouncing off the stands. You look for your family and know what this means to them. What you’re not prepared for, is that reality surpassing the dream or the discovery that the bond between the Irish supporters and team is special – and directly impacts on performance and results.”
James Ryan, Ireland International
A Special Place
The Aviva Stadium has quickly become one of the most iconic stadiums in world rugby. A place where ‘The Lansdowne Roar’ has been undiluted by the upgrading of facilities to match the emergence of the Ireland team as one of the best in world rugby.
