LISC Guide to the Championship 2018-19

LISC Guide to the Championship
Page Updated – May 2018
We return to the Greene King IPA Championship for the 2018-19 season, which gives us a chance to revisit many of the clubs we played against a couple of years ago and there are a couple of new adventures as well.

The following information and pages, we hope, will help London Irish supporters with their planning for the season ahead.
Details are not yet complete – we plan to have these pages completed as soon as possible.

If you have any comments on these pages or if there is any information you would like to see added, please email

TV Coverage
The current TV deal between SKY and the RFU includes “A minimum of 11 Greene King IPA Championship games”.

There does not appear to be a dedicated website for the Championship, we have found a few sources for keeping up to date with Championship news:
Talking Ruby Union
The Rugby Paper (some content may only be available to subscribers)
Rolling Maul Championship Message board (looks to be a good place for general queries & discussion)
Facebook – Unofficial Greene King IPA Championship Page
RFU (fixture list, results & league table)
