Munster A have won both previous clashes with Connacht and Head Coach Peter Malone is delighted that the game has been arranged.
He said: "It's a great opportunity for our younger academy guys to get some experience and also for the senior guys to get some game-time.
"It's a bit of a step-up from the All-Ireland League for guys so the pace and intensity of the games is a bit better. At this time of the year we tend to have younger teams out because there are a few internationals away and the senior team have a lot of the younger players playing Rabo."
Munster A v Connacht Eagles kicks off at Garryowen FC, Dooradoyle, on Friday at 3pm.
