Fans back at Aviva Stadium for Ireland’s summer Tests

Ireland fans have been given the green light to return to the Aviva Stadium for the first time in 17 months for the summer Tests against Japan and the United States.

Capacity at the Aviva for the Vodafone Summer Series will be limited to up to 3,000 (5.8% capacity) supporters for the game against Japan on the 3rd July and 6,000 (12% capacity) supporters for the USA fixture on the 10thJuly.


It will be the first time that any supporters will have attended the Aviva Stadium since Ireland’s Guinness Six Nations game against Wales on the 8th February 2020.

In recognition of their contribution to society the IRFU will allocate 300 tickets for the Japan Game to front-line workers, while all clubs will be represented by club Presidents, who will be invited guests of IRFU President, Des Kavanagh.

For the USA game an allocation of circa 25% of the reduced capacity will go to rugby clubs via their branch ticket office.  Any tickets not taken up by clubs will be reallocated by the branch ticket office.  All tickets are priced at €40 for both games


As these are pilot events, the remaining tickets will be allocated, in reduced numbers to players’ partners and family members, long term ticketholders and IRFU  sponsors and media partners.

In line with government guidelines supporter safety is a key focus of these reopening pilots.  All attendees will be required to adhere to strict COVID safety protocols in order to ensure the success of these events.
