Leinster have responded to the massive demand for the upcoming PRO14 semi-final gainst Munster at the RDS.
The province confirmed on Thursday that they have added temporary seating to the venue for the fixture later this month, bringing the total capacity for the match to just below 19,000 thanks to the extra 630 seats.
Speaking to the club’s website, Head of Commercial and Marketing Kevin Quinn said of the decision:
“As expected the demand for this game from our Season Ticket Holders and wider supporter base has been huge and we were keen to meet that demand as best we could.
“We have seen how special a place the RDS can be for games like these and in particular for interprovincial games and we were keen that we accommodated as many supporters as possible and in doing so, help make the RDS a cauldron of noise for Leo and the team.”
The temporary seats will be installed at the North and South Stands for the decider on the 19th of May.
In the meantime, Leinster will in be in Bilbao this weekend as they look to claim the Champions Cup trophy from Munster’s conquerors Racing 92.
