Tickets have gone on sale for Ireland’s internationals against South Africa, Australia and Georgia at the Aviva Stadium during the Guinness Series in November 2014.
Ireland open their Guinness Series account against world number 2, South Africa. 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 on Saturday 8th November at 17:30.
On Sunday 16th November, 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 gets underway at 14:30
The final game of the 2014 Guinness Series sees Ewen McKenzie’s Australia return to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 22nd November. The game kicks-off at 16:30.
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 Supporters Club members will take place in advance of the public sale opening on Tuesday 3rd June. Ticket prices, value packages and travel offers will be confirmed at a later date.
The 2014 Guinness Series will be broadcast live on RTE and SKY.
