The Guinness PRO12 Final at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday May 30th is nearing sell out, with just over 400 terrace tickets left for public sale and very strong ticket interest amongst the 5 clubs still in contention for the Play Offs.
Each finalist will receive 2,000 tickets and these are expected to be snapped up quickly.
The Guinness PRO12 Final contenders will come from Glasgow Warriors, Munster, Ulster, Ospreys and Leinster who all were represented at today’s Press Briefing at Kingspan Stadium, Belfast.
The match at 6.30pm kick off will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and also on terrestrial television (channels dependent on finalists – BBC, S4C, TG4).
Belfast will be wrapped up in Final Fever as plans were outlined to decorate the whole city. Belfast’s hotels, restaurants & bars expect an influx of sports fans keen to see the many sights the city has to offer including the Titanic Quarter (and Game of Thrones set locations), City Hall and Queen’s University while enjoying their visit.
Team Belfast are expecting an influx of visitors from all 12 clubs and 4 rugby unions represented in the Guinness PRO12 with some of these rugby fans adding on a visit to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in nearby Royal County Down Golf Club in Newcastle, Co. Down. Indeed, Belfast expects a busy summer of visitors with the Tall Ships docking in Belfast on July 2nd to the 5th.
Speaking at today’s Press Conference, with three rounds left to go, Ulster captain Rory Best said: “We have a tough-run in of Leinster, Munster and then Glasgow away, so we can’t look beyond the Leinster game.
“But in terms of the run-in, it probably couldn’t get a lot harder than that.
“It’ll be a good marker to see where we are and we’re in a good position at the minute, our destiny is in our own hands because we’re playing the teams around us.
“Everyone wants to play at home, with the crowd and we’ll get a sell-out – it’ll give us a lift, an edge. But that won’t make the games any easier.”
