London Irish Supporters Club (LISC)
Welcome to London Irish Supporters’ Club (LISC). The 2013-14 season will be our last season based at The Avenue – work is progressing well at Hazelwood and by pre-season 2014-15 the club will be based at its new home. So 2013-14 marks the end of an era.
In the Aviva Premiership we welcome back Newcastle Falcons who are also one of our LV= cup opponents, giving us two autumn trips up to the North East within a couple of weeks of each other. The season starts with the now traditional London Double Header, this season it is a home fixture for us, against Saracens. We have to wait until the 3rd weekend of the season for our first match at the Madejski, when Exeter Chiefs will be the visitors. We play hosts to Gloucester for our Christmas fixture, Bath will be the visitors for our St Patrick’s party and we finish the regular season with a home match against Sale Sharks.
This season’s Amlin Cup campaign sees us up against opponents from France, Italy and Portugal – we play host to Prato in October, followed by a trip Lisbon to play Lusitanos XV, we have back to back matches with Stade Francais in December and in January Lusitanos XV visit the Madejski before we travel to Italy to play Prato.
In the LV= Cup we are in pool 1 (alongside Saracens, Gloucester & Dragons) with matches against pool 4 sides - Newcastle(a) & Northampton(h) in November and Wasps(a) & Scarlets(h) in January/February.
During the autumn we have 3 A-league matches at Sunbury and there is a full season of matches for the amateur teams, so there are plenty of opportunities for a final visit to The Avenue before we say farewell to the old place.
