Ravenhill has hosted 18 international matches, including a pool game in both the 1991 and 1999 Rugby World Cups, which are at the bottom of the page. The most recent Ireland international to be played at the stadium was on 24 August 2007 against Italy as a World Cup warm-up match. Before that Scotland was the last visitor in the 1954 Five Nations Championship. Lansdowne Road has been the usual stadium for Ireland international rugby matches, but that is currently unavailable due to redevelopment, scheduled to be complete by 2009
Since 1924 the stadium has been the annual venue for the Ulster Schools Cup final which is traditionally contested on St Patrick's Day. The stadium is traditionally the venue for the Ulster Towns Cup played on Easter Monday.
Ravenhill also hosted the 2007 Under 19 Rugby World Championship Final in which New Zealand defeated South Africa and numerous other pool and semi-final matches.
