Munster return tickets for big Leinster semi-final clash

MUNSTER has not taken up its full allocation of match tickets for Saturday’s glamour Guinness Pro14 semi-final showdown with arch rivals Leinster at the RDS Arena, 3.15pm.

Leinster Rugby has indicated that ‘due to returns from the away allocation’, additional tickets will be going on general sale for the big game from this Tuesday morning.

Munster were entitled to take up 25% of each ticket category for the semi-final showdown with European Champions Cup winners Leinster.

An additional 630 seats has been installed at the RDS which brings the capacity for the game to just shy of 19,000 on match day.

Munster’s ticket allocation for the game is of the order of 4,750. 

Munster’s ticket allocation was distributed through PRO14 ticket holders across the Munster Rugby clubs, the Munster Rugby Supporters Club and 10 Year Ticket Holders.

These tickets returned by Munster are going on sale from leinsterrugby.ie from 10am, this Tuesday, May 15.

It is clear that a significant portion of Munster’s support at the game on Saturday will be made up of the province’s Dublin-based supporters.

Munster’s Pro14 semi-final play-off fixture against Edinburgh at Thomond Park earlier this month attracted an attendance of 10,205.
