The Guinness Pro14
Bigger and Better Than Ever
After expanding into South Africa this season to become a truly global club rugby championship, the first-ever Guinness PRO14 champions will be crowned in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on May
Following the success of a record-setting crowd at last year’s Guinness PRO12 Final, the Championship showpiece will return to the Irish capital once again.
Teams from Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Wales and now South Africa are battling it out to reach the Final at the home of Irish rugby, which witnessed a thrilling game last year when Scarlets beat Munster in front of 44,558 fans.
To win the trophy, the Welsh men saw off Leinster and Munster in successive weekends, but both of the Irish provinces are performing well again this season, eager to become the first
Irish champions since Connacht’s win in 2016.
Ulster are also in the shake-up to reach the knock-out stages of the Guinness PRO14, but the provinces won’t have it all their own way with Scarlets and Glasgow Warriors also setting their targets on a trip to Dublin on May 26.
The Toyota Cheetahs, one of the two new South African teams in the Championship, could also prove to be a wildcard to win the title in just their first season. The men in orange from Bloemfontein are making a massive impression with their fast, free-flowing rugby and cannot be ruled out of contention.
The Cheetahs addition to the Guinness PRO14 is just one of the many reasons why the Championship is producing such fantastic rugby, meaning that the Final at Aviva Stadium promises to celebrate the very best in adventurous play.
This will be a truly historic occasion - and you and your friends can be a part of helping set a new attendance record. Make sure you are there to capture the memories by booking your ticket for the 2018 Guinness PRO14 Final now at www. ticketmaster.ie
