It’s game week and we are getting ready for our first home game of the 2022/23 season against Benetton on Friday, 23 September.

We have some big news for all Leinster Rugby fans, our new fanzone the “Laighin Den” will be launching this Friday in the RDS Arena. This Friday, we will have a number of senior Leinster Rugby players appearing in the Laighin Den before and after the game.

Johnny Sexton, James Lowe and Tadhg Furlong will take part in a Q&A before kick off.  A senior coach and a senior player will be interviewed in the fanzone after the game.

Player appearances, refreshments and live music will make the Laighin Den the perfect spot for Leinster Rugby supporters on matchday. This week, Riff Shop and Rake the Ashes will be performing live at the Laighin Den. Season ticket holders will also be able to collect their Season Ticket packs in the Industries Hall, so the Laighin Den fanzone is the perfect place to relax before kick off.
