Munster Rugby and adidas are inviting supporters to participate in the Munster March this Saturday at 3.05pm ahead of our Champions Cup clash with Northampton Saints in Thomond Park.

We want Munster supporters of all ages to walk the one mile from Limerick City Centre to Thomond Park to help raise awareness of the club’s commitment to environmental sustainability and climate action.

Our aim is to halve our overall emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2040 or as soon as possible.

A key focus of our strategy is to encourage supporters, where possible, to use more sustainable forms of transport – such as walking, cycling, carpooling and public transport, when travelling to our matches.

Using the Ciclogreen App (iOS or Android), supporters can track their participation in the Munster March, collect points, and be entered into a raffle to win tickets for the sold-out clash against the Crusaders at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday February 3rd.

Small steps taken together can mean huge strides forward in the club’s collective ability to affect positive change.

We want as many Munster supporters as possible to march with us and meet the team as they get off the bus before kick-off.

When and Where?

The Munster March will begin at the Richard Harris statue on Bedford Row in Limerick City Centre at 3.05pm on Saturday, January 20th.

The march will travel the one mile to the East Stand of Thomond Park where supporters can greet the team when they arrive at the stadium.

Jazz band ‘Downtown Dixieland’ will be leading the march where they will also play in the fanzone outside Thomond Park ahead of kick-off.

Track your participation

For supporters who want to go the extra mile, Munster Rugby and adidas are giving you the chance to win exclusive prizes.

Whether you join us at the start of the march in the City Centre, filter onto the Red Mile route along the way, or go direct to Thomond Park, look for alternatives to typical car journeys from where you live by walking, cycling and using public transport, where possible.

Or, if travelling big distances and from areas with limited travel options, team up with friends to share lifts to fill up the car. Any small changes can make a difference through our collective action.
