Thomond Park sold out for Munster's clash with Exeter

The sold out signs will be up at Thomond Park for Munster's crucial Champions Cup clash with Exeter Chiefs

FOR the second time this season, Thomond Park has sold out two weeks in advance of the fixture, with Munster’s Round 6 Champions Cup clash against Exeter Chiefs set for a capacity crowd of 26,267 on Saturday, January 19.

The Round 6 game will have a 5.30pm kick-off time and is being televised live on BT Sport.

Following on from the Leinster sell-out in record time, demand for Munster’s crucial European encounter spiked, and the final tickets were snapped up over the weekend.

Pool 2 of the Champions Cup has proven the tightest in the competition this season with all four teams still in contention for a quarter-final place.

The increased capacity includes the additional seating installed on the goal-line at both ends of the ground.

The latest sell-out is the fourth of the season for the province across Musgrave Park and Thomond Park.

Pool 2 table toppers Munster face a trip to Kingsholm on Friday night to take on Gloucester in their Heineken Champions Cup Round 5 clash, 7.45pm.
