A Lot More Munster Fans Have Travelled To Bordeaux Than We Expected

Red army.

Munster take on Racing 92 in Bordeaux, France tomorrow, but they might as well be playing in Limerick with the huge number of travelling fans expected.

Over 8,000 Munster fans have reportedly made the trip for their crucial European Champions Cup semi-final, far more than originally expected.

Racing meanwhile, are only expected to have a travelling support of around 2,000 fans, despite the game being on in France.

The Stade Chaban-Delmas, is almost 550km from Paris, and due to strikes in rail company SNCF and Air France, getting there has become increasingly difficult for Racing fans.

How big a role will the crowd play this weekend? We’ll just have to wait and find out.
