Tickets on sale for first Guinness Pro 14 final in Dublin

The first ever Guinness Pro 14 final will be played at Dublin's Aviva Stadium in May - and tickets are already on sale.

The Championship decider will take place on May 26 next year, after a record-breaking crowd of 45,566 watched Scarlets claim their second league title with a win over Munster Rugby last season.

Early Bird prices are available via www.ticketmaster.ie with fans able to save up to 20% on selected categories while tickets start at €30 for adults and €5 for children.

Martin Anayi, CEO of PRO14 Rugby said the Dublin stadium had fought off stiff competition to secure the season finale:

“Dublin is a fantastic venue for rugby supporters who are used to coming here in the Six Nations while it is also the home of our title sponsors, Guinness, who are really excited at playing hosts for the thousands and thousands of passionate fans who will descend on Dublin on May 26.

“When we sat down to review our options for the 2018 Guinness PRO14 Final we had a lot of interest from across the UK, Ireland and further afield. Some of those expressions of interest came from non-traditional rugby venues and while those options were appealing we needed to ensure that we put our fans first.

“After the success in BT Murrayfield in 2016, we saw another record attendance in Dublin for the 2017 Guinness PRO12 Final – now our goal is to beat that figure of 45,566 who bought tickets for last season’s decider.

“Aviva Stadium is a world-class arena and that is one of the top-ranking criteria when it comes to deciding upon the venue for our showpiece game.

“Stadium availability always comes into focus as well and once we factored in event clashes in other countries then Dublin became the front-runner for 2018.”
