Munster Increase Thomond Park Capacity Ahead Of Saracens Battle

Munster have announced that they will increase the capacity of Thomond Park for Saturday’s mouth-watering clash with Saracens (KO 5.30pm). 

The southern province, due to high demand, will install pitchside seating at the northern and southern ends of the ground which will bring capacity up to 26,267 from 25,600.

Munster are currently tied at the top of Pool 4 with Racing 92 on seven points with Saracens in third on five points.

Thomond Park

Johann van Graan’s side welcome the reigning English and European champions to Thomond Park on Saturday before taking them on again at Allianz Park a week later.

The back-to-back games will have a major say on who qualifies for the knockout stages from Pool 4.

Ahead of the game, Munster have issued an injury update which confirms that Tyler Bleyendaal will not be available for selection due to “neck stiffness.”
