RUGBY’S greatest prize, the Webb Ellis Cup, will visit Munster’s Thomond Park this Sunday, June 21, as part of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour.

The Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour will travel through the Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England before arriving at Twickenham Stadium on September 18 ahead of the tournament’s opening ceremony.

As part of Tour, Munster Rugby are inviting fans to come and see, and have their picture taken with, the Webb Ellis Cup from 10am to 11am this Sunday in Thomond Park’s Fan Zone Plaza.

The event will also see 12 Minis rugby teams from across the province get the opportunity to play on the Thomond Park surface when they compete in an U-11 tag tournament while, in celebration of Father’s Day, a number of lucky dads will also take to the famous Thomond turf for penalty kick shootout.

The journey throughout Ireland and the UK aims to engage fans and give them the opportunity to build unforgettable memories as part of their own Rugby World Cup 2015 story.
