Where To Watch Ireland Vs All Blacks If You Can't Be In Soldier Field In Chicago

On 5 November at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ireland will take on the All Blacks and seek to beat arguably the biggest juggernaut in world sport for the very first time. We have the details on where to watch Ireland vs All Blacks at Soldier Field in Chicago below.

Ireland will face New Zealand in what promises to be a monumental task for Joe Schmidt's team. Ireland will hope to go one better as they were agonisingly close to defeating the All Blacks in 2013.

In the closing stages of a truly pulsating game of rugby in November 2013, Ireland lead the All Blacks 22-17  but resilient runs by Ma'a Nonu and Ben Smith weakened the already tired Irish defence.  Ryan Crotty then found space down the left flank and he scored a try to break Irish hearts. Never has a stadium gone from pure euphoria to despair in such a short period of time. Aaron Cruden converted and the All Blacks finished the calendar year with a 100% record.

Ireland enter the 2016 Autumn Internationals with a 0-1-27 record against New Zealand. Coming off the back of a rather disappointing Six Nations campaign, Joe Schmidt - who recently extended his contract - will seek out a positive performance.
