You're dreaming. €36 is just the teaser price they use to suck you in. They don't even let you away with an even €40. And you don't even get a free bin liner if it rains
Paid up anyway as I'm an addict.
If you believe everything you read, you'd think we were the most expensive club out there!!
This was an article from earlier in the season,
"Connacht ticket prices don’t add up compared to their domestic rivals
THE Sportsground was an uncomfortable place to be, Saturday’s downpour highlighting again how a new stadium can’t come quickly enough on stream in Galway.
Poor weather was a contributory factor in restricting attendance against Zebre to 4,056, only the fifth best figure of seven round two PRO14 fixtures.
A much bigger issue, though, is how rugby doesn’t come cheap at Connacht. Paying in at the gate for their first four home matches this season – league games versus Glasgow, Zebre, Scarlets and Leinster – would set you back a minimum €104.50 for a low quality behind-the-posts vantage point.
That isn’t value compared to cheapest tickets elsewhere in Ireland. Terrace entry to Ulster’s first four – Scarlets, Edinburgh, Connacht and Leicester in Europe – costs £74 (€82.60).
Munster’s four home openers – Cheetahs, Ospreys, Ulster and Gloucester in Europe – are €85 for a standing spot and while Leinster’s cheapest entry costs 50 cent more than at Connacht (€105), you get seats for all their games versus Dragons, Edinburgh, Munster at the Aviva and Wasps in Europe.
That is considerable more bang for your buck, exposing the lack of creature comforts in Galway. "
