Champions Cup Hospitality

Munster v Leicester Tigers

Hospitality has already proven very popular since the draw was made in June.  Our Christmas game v Leicester is already sold out in the Thomond Suite, with one only corporate box remaining on sale.

However, packages remain available in the 1978 Suite from €175 including a Category A ticket, pre-match meal, match programme, guest speaker and complimentary gift upon arrival.

Munster v Racing 92

There remains limited availability in the Thomond Suite for Munster v Racing in October, but given the optimal Saturday evening kick off time (5.30pm), we expect these to sell out quickly too.

Packages from €3,500 for a table of 10, which includes Category A ticket, three course pre-match meal, guest speaker from the world of sport along with ex-Munster and Ireland player Damien Varley as MC, match programmes, corporate gift, some complimentary drinks and live band post-match where both teams will be present.
