Heineken Cup Fixtures Announced
22nd July 2013 By Munster Rugby
Munster’s 2013/14 Heineken Cup campaign will start in Murrayfield on Saturday October 12th against last year’s pool opponents Edinburgh Rugby.
Round 2 will see Munster welcome Gloucester Rugby to Thomond Park a week later with an evening kick-off time of 6pm. The Premiership side will familiarise themselves with the new Thomond Park Stadium when they arrive for our opening pre-season game on Saturday August 24th.
The tough task of the back to back games in December includes a home start against Perpignan on Sunday December 8th and the return leg six days later at Stade Aimé Giral. In the New Year Munster travel to Kingsholm for round 5 and then complete their pool games at home in Thomond Park for round 6 against Edinburgh Rugby.
The dates and kick-off times for rounds 5 and 6 will be confirmed after the round 4 games are completed.
