Same date, different time.
The Guinness PRO14 Final will now kick-off 30 minutes earlier at 18:00 on Saturday, May 26 at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium after great effort by PRO14 Rugby due to the increased interest among UK and Ireland fans in this year’s Champions League Final.
Organisers say the first-ever Guinness PRO14 Final is going to be an occasion for “hardcore supporters of both finalists, the wider rugby community and fans who have a passion for all sports.”
“Once the finalists for the Champions League were confirmed, PRO14 Rugby immediately set about working to change the kick-off time of the Guinness PRO14 Final.” A statement read
“This decision was taken in order to accommodate fans in stadium or at home who wish to enjoy the drama and excitement of the Guinness PRO14 Final and also take in the Champions League Final afterwards.”
“PRO14 Rugby would like to thank Sky Sports for their willingness to accommodate our fans.”
Sky Sports Action (Ch 407) will broadcast the entire game with coverage starting from 17:30.
Additionally, Sky Sports Main Event (Ch 401) will show action from the second half.
TG4 will be the secondary broadcaster in Ireland while BBC Alba or S4C will be the secondary broadcasters depending on whether Glasgow Warriors or Scarlets qualify for the Final.
