Help us support the Irish rugby team by turning the world green!


The 2019 Rugby World Cup is nearly upon us, and final preparations are being made by the Irish Rugby team. The squad has been announced, and there is one final warm-up match before the players board the plane.

There are so many reasons to believe. Just last year this team clinched the Grand Slam, won a series in Australia, added a second win against the All Blacks in the last three years and without a doubt have the greatest fans in the world!

The players have already shown us what they can do at their best, but now we want to see what the fans can do. We've teamed up with Canterbury, official kit supplier to the Ireland Rugby Team, to "Turn The World Green."

We don't care if it's biased, but Irish sports fans are amongst the best in the world. No matter where on earth our sports stars go, the green army of supporters will be in tow.

Basically, turning the world green is something that comes naturally to us. There's nothing we wouldn't do to support our team...

How to enter


We're looking for people to don Irish rugby gear in the most extreme, exotic or unusual locations and landmarks they can think of. All you really have to do on your end is upload a photo to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, being sure to tag @CanterburyNZ and mention #TurnTheWorldGreen.

There will be a weekly prize of €250 up for grabs, until the overall winner of a whopping €1,500 will be chosen at the end of the six weeks.

It can be anywhere in the world, be it Ireland or abroad, but we want you to get creative. Again, this is something that comes natural to us here on the Emerald Isle so we know you won't be short of ideas.

If for example you're planning on climbing Kilimanjaro or walking across the Atacama desert, be sure to pack Ireland rugby jerseys/flags. Maybe a scarf as well if it's not too warm.
