Sotic match support covering games from Tiblisi to Galway this weekend

by | Jan 19, 2018

Very roughly it’s around 5000km from Tiblisi in Georgia to Galway on the West Coast of Ireland and this weekend Sotic will cover rugby matches in both cities and everywhere in between as we support our client, European Professional Club Rugby through no less than 20 live rugby matches taking place all over Europe.

(It is of course Connacht Rugby who play at The Sportsground in Galway and this weekend they’ll host French side Oyonnax while Russian team Krasny Yar host London Irish at the Avchala Stadium in Tiblisi, Georgia.)

Yes, it’s make or break time for rugby clubs participating in European competition as we’ve reached the final pool stage, Round 6, of the Champions & Challenge Cup competitions which kicked off back on October.

Leinster Rugby, another Sotic client, wrapped up their qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions Cup tournament in timely fashion last week with a thumping 55-19 win over Glasgow Warriors to put them top of Pool 3. However there are still 7 more places up for grabs – another 4 spots for the pool winners and 3 spots for the best-placed runners-up.

In the Challenge Cup competition which runs alongside the Champions Cup, there are six clubs who have already booked their places in the last 8, including Sotic clients Gloucester Rugby and Cardiff Blues.

You can follow all the action this weekend, as it happens, around all the grounds, on the EPCR Live Blog
