Tickets Returned To Leinster As Munster Fail To Sell Allocation Once Again

Tickets Returned To Leinster As Munster Fail To Sell Allocation Once Again

Leinster Rugby has confirmed that a select number of tickets are now on general sale after Munster did not take up their full allocation for the Pro14 semi-final clash this weekend.

The province announced 'due to returns from the away allocation’ tickets would be available from today onwards. It comes after Munster had a crowd of just 10,205 at their home quarter-final against Edinburgh.

The game is set for the RDS, with additional seating bringing the possible seating up to just shy of 19,000. Per the Independent.ie, it costs circa €400k to open the Aviva Stadium and turn on the lights. Therefore a crowd of at least 30'000 is necessary to host games there.

Munster were allocated approximately 4,750 for this semi-final. The large support base that traveled to Bordeaux recently as well as Dublin based supporters may go some way towards explaining the inability to sell all the tickets.

Tickets are available here.
