I passed by Thomond Park yesterday and some of the seating has gone into the new West Stand. While there’s a bit of work to be done, it looks like the new stadium is really taking shape. The Munster Rugby website has pictures from June, before the seating went in.
The first match to be played in the new stadium will be a Magners League match against Glasgow Warriors on the 3rd, 4th or 5th October. The first Heineken Cup match will be against Montauban on the 10th October – Friday Night, and the one that everyone is looking forward to is Munster vs New Zealand on the 18th November. Expect to see guys selling their grannies for tickets to that match!
