And so it begins, a truly massive week of action with the province contesting both the British and Irish Cup final and Champions Cup semi final.  Here’s your comprehensive guide to how you can behind the men in red and get aboard the #RedWave this week.

B&I Cup Final Tickets

On Friday night at 7.30pm, Munster A return to Irish Independent Park, Cork, the ground where they claimed their first B&I Cup title in 2012.  In looking to replicate the success of the likes of Billy Holland, Dave Kilcoyne and Duncan Williams, a new generation of emerging talent including David Johnston, Conor Oliver and Brian Scott host Jersey Reds, and with visiting fans travelling in numbers, you’re asked to come out and support the future stars of the province as they bid to get the weekend off to a winning start.

Tickets can be purchased online here, from the Munster Rugby Ticket Offices at Irish Independent Park and Thomond Park or at the ground on match night.

Over 37,000 tickets have been distributed via official Munster channels (MRSC, Season Ticket holders and Clubs), but we have secured the last of the tickets for Saturday’s Champions Cup semi final where Munster face reigning champions Saracens at the Aviva Stadium at 3.15pm.

To win, simply show us how you are getting aboard the #RedWave in support of Muster this week.  From wearing your jersey to work to painting the house red, take a picture and share it with us on Twitter (@munsterrugby) or Instagram (munster_rugby) using #RedWave.  Alternatively email your entry to competitions@munsterrugby.ie.
