London Irish and Premiership Rugby confirmed today that the Club will be the first to play an Aviva Premiership fixture overseas when the Exiles take their Round 16 home match to the USA on Saturday 12th March 2016.

The fixture will see London Irish play reigning Champions, Saracens, at the 25,000 capacity Red Bull Arena, the home of Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls.

This ground-breaking announcement is a milestone in the development of London Irish and of the League which underlines the growing international interest in Aviva Premiership Rugby and showcases it in the biggest sports market in the world where rugby is currently the fastest growing team sport.


A great curmudgeonly comment by one Dan Subu on the offy site -
Hard enough to motivate myself to travel 30mins to watch the current rubbish performances by London Irish so don't think I'll be spending out to travel to the US to watch us get stuffed. Hope it works out but the team and performances need to be sorted out ASAP as we currently just seem good for relegation.

That's the spirit Dan, two matches in and Irish are only good for relegation.

Surely the club will lay on a fleet of 747's to take us loyal supporters to NY, put us up in a hotel, and take us to the match - for free :wink:
