Supply and demand.
Due to the massive demand for tickets to Munster’s St Stephen’s Day Inter-provincial derby against Leinster, additional seating is being installed at Thomond Park to increase the capacity of the ground to 26,267.
Ticket sales have already surpassed 22,000 two weeks out from the Guinness PRO14 clash and the East and West Stands are now sold out.
The additional seating is being installed in the North Terrace to give as many supporters as possible the opportunity to see Munster clash with rivals Leinster. An attendance of 23,503 attended Saturday’s Champions Cup clash against Leicester, which was the largest crowd attending a European game across the weekend.
The matchday experience at Thomond Park has already been enhanced this season with the addition of a second big screen at the South Terrace end of the ground.
