Munster's Keith Earls gets in for a try in their Guinness PRO14 meeting with Leinster at the Aviva Stadium earlier this season
AN additional 630 seats will be installed at the RDS Arena for Saturday week’s Guinness PRO14 semi-final clash between provincial rivals Munster and Leinster.
Leinster Rugby confirmed this Thursday that the additional seating will bring the capacity for the game to just shy of 19,000 on match day.
As per tournament regulations, Munster will receive 25% of each ticket category for the semi-final showdown with Champions Cup finalists Leinster.
Speaking to leinsterrugby.ie, Kevin Quinn, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Leinster Rugby, said: "As expected the demand for this game from our Season Ticket Holders and wider supporter base has been huge and we were keen to meet that demand as best we could.
"We have seen how special a place the RDS can be for games like these and in particular for interprovincial games and we were keen that we accommodated as many supporters as possible and in doing so, help make the RDS a cauldron of noise for Leo (Cullen) and the team."
