Destination Sport Travel and have announced an extended partnership with Ulster Rugby.

As the UK’s leading travel provider for elite sports clubs and governing bodies, Destination Sport Travel (formerly Clarity Sports) have supported Ulster Rugby with its team and business travel requirements since the 2019 season.

Meanwhile sister business provides opportunities for Ulster Rugby fans to follow their club to selected overseas matches, whilst also offering ticket inclusive packages to many of the world’s top sporting events including international rugby, football and Formula 1.

Earlier this season, leveraged its unique relationship with Destination Sport Travel to provide Ulster fans with an opportunity to travel to La Rochelle on the same aircraft used by the professional team.

Ulster Rugby CEO, Jonny Petrie, said:

“Destination Sport Travel is a valued partner of the club, and we are delighted they will continue to support our Senior Men’s team travel in the seasons ahead.

“Competing in the United Rugby Championship and Heineken Champions Cup requires our professional players and staff to regularly travel to away fixtures, with efficient journeys critical to us delivering a performance on the pitch.

“Equally, it is important to us as a club that our supporters are able to feel part of our games away from home and, thanks to, they are now able to make a welcome return to travelling alongside us.”

Managing Director of Destination Sport Travel and Rob Slawson commented:

“We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Ulster Rugby.

“Our offering is particularly unique in that via Destination Sport Travel and, both market-leading solutions in their respective areas, we can cater for both team and supporter requirements.

“After a few years of covid protocols, it was great to see Ulster Rugby return to having supporters travel on the team aircraft earlier this season. We know these trips are enjoyed by fans and players alike.

“We’d like to wish the very best to Ulster Rugby for their fixture in South Africa this weekend.”
