The RSA Challenge will be the biggest cricket match ever to be held in Ireland, with the new Malahide all-seater venue being able to host a higher capacity than has ever been seen on the island of Ireland for an international cricket match. We will be targeting UK fans and inviting them to join us for this ultimate cricket ‘Gathering’ of old rivals.
Ireland will be hoping their new venue sees a change in luck in their home clashes against the auld enemy, having lost the three previous encounters on Irish soil narrowly by 38, 3 and 11 runs respectively. English cricket fans will of course be given a warm Irish welcome to this Gathering, but John Mooney, who struck the winning runs when Ireland beat England in that epic World Cup battle said: “It’s going to be a great occasion to play England again and it’ll be a superb boost to the team to have a home crowd behind us. There’s always an extra edge and a great atmosphere when Ireland play England at any sport and it brings out the best in us all. It’s extra special for me in the fact that the game is in Fingal and I’m hoping the new venue at Malahide turns into a real fortress for Irish cricket.”
Tickets for the RSA Challenge are priced at just €40 for Adults for a full day’s entertainment, with family tickets only €99 and they are on sale now.
