It will be the first time ever the reigning champions of the URC and Super Rugby face off against each other.

Munster Rugby can confirm that formal approval is being sought for the use of Páirc Uí Chaoimh for our ‘Clash of Champions’ game against Crusaders on Saturday, February 3 (5pm).

If approved by the GAA’s Central Council this Saturday, the historic encounter will take place at Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork.

Munster played at Páirc Uí Chaoimh for the first time last November against South Africa ‘A’ with the event proving a great success on a memorable night for supporters and the squad.

Following a huge uptake in the pre-sale, all Stand tickets were sold-out within minutes of the tickets going on general sale. All tickets were sold-out within four days of going on general sale.

The club will have a ticket update early next week with full details of on-sale dates and pricing details.
