One of rugby's biggest prizes, the Heineken Cup

This year’s Heineken Cup matchup between Ulster and Leinster (Saturday, May 19, Dublin, Ireland) promises to be one of the biggest professional rugby matches of the year. Rugby fans across the UK are very fired up to see the two native clubs slugging out for Rugby’s most coveted prize.

Aside from the excitement generated by two top teams going head-to-head, this year’s Cup Final has the added hype factor provided by an intra-UK matchup to boot. In house rivalries are always a good promotion point and you could hardly ask for a rivalry fiercer than this one.

The Matchup

Leinster is returning to the Heineken Cup Final after pulling one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the sport in last year’s Cup. Down 6-22 at the half against the Northampton Saints, Leinster turned up the heat and won 33-22. Though Leinstaer’s ticket allotment is only 7,500, organizers are expecting several times that number of supporters to be on hand for the big match.

Ultster, a Belfast based club whose history stretches back to 1895, is widely considered to be Ireland’s most successful rugby club. They made history on the Emerald Isle by becoming the first Irish club to win the Euro Cup and the Heineken Cup.
