Stade Santander International, Rue des Landes, St Peter, JE3 7BG.
The ground is a 15 minute, 1.2km walk from Jersey airport. Budget and flights permitting, it would be possible to fly to Jersey, watch the match and fly back home all in the same day. However, the hospitality of the rugby club and the Islanders is exceptional, and there are many sites of interest for most tourists.
There is some very useful information for visitors on the club’s website.
Tickets are available online at £15 in advance, up to 24 hours before kick-off. After that the price rises to £19. Tickets must be purchased online – they will be not be available at the gate. Prices for students are £7, and £2 for under 18s. Under 5s are free (but must also be booked in advance).
It’s a good idea to arrive at the ground in good time, at least 30-40 minutes before the off – however it is well worth arriving earlier to enjoy the hospitality at the Stade Santander International.
The small stand is fully subscribed, but there is a limited amount of unreserved seating.
How to get there: The ground few minutes walk from the airport on the main road to St Peter’s village. From St Helier there is a regular bus service (route 15) to the airport (nearest stop to the ground is The Mermaid) and a less frequent service (route 9) that stops outside the ground.

Please do not use the Jersey Bowl car park.
It is recommended to use the bus to get to and from the ground.

Match Day: We are scheduled to play Jersey on Saturday 27th August at 3:00pm.
We are not aware of any pubs close to ground, so we would advise supporters to arrive at the ground early and enjoy Jersey’s pre-match hospitality.
Disabled Supporters: For those with serious mobility issues, JRFC will try and help out with vacant stand seats, but these are at a premium and can’t be guaranteed. There are two tiered benches for anyone who has difficulty in standing for long periods of time. Please call the club on 01534 499929 between 10am and 1pm on Tuesday or Thursday and speak to Sean or Nicola if you need to arrange a seat.
