Croke Park Classic
The Croke Park Classic will see the University of Central Florida host Penn State in their 2014 season opener in Croke Park on the 30th August 2014. This big season opener for UCF and Penn State will be the first time that UCF and Penn State have played outside the United States.
The American Football match is expecting to bring over 20,000 fans from overseas to Dublin this weekend.
For those looking for some fun, there will be a Pep Rally at Dublin Castle on Friday August 29th, and a Tailgate in Temple Bar on Saturday August 30th before the match. Both are ingrained in American pre-game rituals. Not to be missed!
Our i-site network will be buzzing with tourists and locals this weekend out to socialise and celebrate!
