Ulster Rugby Visitor Experience

Welcome to the Ulster Rugby Visitor Experience

Take a journey through the history of rugby in Ulster with a self-guided tour of The Nevin Spence Centre. Using archive objects, footage and interactives, visitors can discover the roots of the provincial and the professional game. Select your dream team, test your skills in the kicking challenge and learn how technology plays an integral part in the modern game.

The Visitor Experience also includes a guided stadium tour, which is an exclusive, behind the scenes experience showcasing the team changing rooms, tunnel, dugouts and the state-of-the-art training facility and gym.

This is a unique family experience and a must see for visitors to Belfast. To get a sneak peek of the experience visit: https://www.virtualvisittours.com/nevin-spence-centre-and-kingspan-stadium/.

The centre is dedicated to Ulster Rugby’s own Nevin Spence who tragically lost his life, along with his father and brother, in a farming accident in September 2012. The centre stands as a tribute to the huge impact the young player had on the Ulster Rugby family. His natural flair, commitment to and passion for the game are well documented throughout the museum and demonstrate his special Ulster charm which captured the hearts of so many.
