Irish Rugby Announce Autumn Internationals

Ireland are set to face New Zealand in Dublin as part of a series of Autumn Internationals.

The team will play Japan, New Zealand and Argentina during their busy autumn schedule at the Aviva Stadium.

The Japan tie will kick off the fixtures on Saturday 06 November, followed by New Zealand on Saturday 13 and Argentina on Sunday 21.

The clash with the All Blacks will be the first since Ireland's crushing 46-14 defeat in the 2019 World Cup quarterfinal. But the Autumn fixture will also see New Zealand return to Ireland following their first defeat on Irish soil in 2018.

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell commented: "The July window has been a fantastic period of growth for this group and it was brilliant to have fans back in the Aviva Stadium for both games.

"We have an exciting year of rugby ahead with an action packed autumn international window, the Six Nations Championship and a tour of New Zealand."

Ticketing information for the games will be released in due course once stadium capacity is known. Stadium capacity will be determined by the latest public health and government advice.

Ahead of the Autumn Internationals, Ireland will also play their return fixture against USA in the Las Vegas Rugby Cup at the Allegiant Stadium in Vegas. Tickets for the November 06 tie are available now.
