The two sides will face off on Monday December 26th at Thomond Park.
Munster Rugby officials have today confirmed that the club’s upcoming matchup with fierce rivals Leinster has been sold out.
With the additional seating made available for the game, a capacity crowd of 26,200 will be present. This marks the largest crowd ever for a Pro12 game at Thomond Park.
The previous high for a Pro12 game at the Limerick-based ground was 26,100, also for Munster vs Leinster, back in 2011.
The huge numbers of tickets sold, in addition to the speed they sold at, speaks to the huge importance of the Stephen’s day fixture, with the sides currently sitting 1st and 2nd in the Pro12 table.
For those who were unable to get a ticket, the match will be broadcast live on TG4.
