Connacht Rugby


Discovery & Planning

Connacht Rugby is one of the four professional rugby teams in Ireland. The club is based in the city of Galway and competes in both the Guinness PRO14 and the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Connacht Rugby recently approached our design and development agency with the request to redesign and develop their website. The new website was expected to be modern, visually appealing, and user-friendly. Additionally, it was crucial to streamline the ticket purchasing process and integrate a 3D video player profile to provide an immersive user experience. The website was also required to integrate with Opta Sports to provide real-time match statistics and results.

We then conducted extensive research on the target audience, including their preferences, behavior, and expectations. This research helped us to identify the key features and functionalities required for the new website.

Design and Development

The design process began with wireframing, where we created a skeletal framework of the website. This helped us to visualize the layout and functionality of the website. Once the wireframe was finalized, we moved onto the design phase. We created several design mockups and presented them to the client for feedback. The design mockups were refined until the final design was approved.

The development phase involved building the website using modern web development technologies. We integrated a CCD own CMS 'The Control Panel' to allow the client to easily manage the website's content. We also integrated a secure payment gateway to enable users to purchase tickets seamlessly. Additionally, we implemented a 3D video player profile to provide an immersive user experience.


We integrated the website with Opta Sports, a leading provider of real-time sports data. This integration allowed users to access real-time match statistics and results, enhancing their overall user experience.


The new Connacht Rugby website features several improvements, including:

Streamlined Ticket Purchasing Process - The new website features a seamless ticket purchasing process, enabling users to purchase tickets with ease.

3D Video Player Profiles - The new website includes 3D video player profiles, providing an immersive user experience.

Real-time Match Statistics and Results - The website integrates with Opta Sports, allowing users to access real-time match statistics and results.

The Result

The new Connacht Rugby website provides an enhanced user experience, with streamlined ticket purchasing processes and 3D video player profiles. The integration with Opta Sports provides users with real-time match statistics and results, making the website a valuable resource for rugby fans. The website has been designed and developed to meet the needs and preferences of the target audience, and we are confident that it will help Connacht Rugby to grow their fanbase and enhance their online presence.
