Over 40,000 tickets have been sold for Leinster Rugby’s Guinness PRO14 clash with Munster at Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 6 October (KO 6pm).
Leinster Rugby Season Ticket holders received early access to tickets in an exclusive pre-sale last month. The public sale commenced on Tuesday, 21 August.
Offers on €10 tickets and South Premium level tickets quickly sold out in a few minutes once the general sale began.
Leinster came out on top in the last meeting between the two sides at Aviva Stadium, 23-17.
Rory O’Loughlin bagged two tries and Johnny Sexton kicked 13 points to become the province’s all-time leading scorer in the process.
The upcoming meeting at the Aviva will be the first between the two sides since the Guinness PRO14 Semi-Final last season. Leinster won by the narrowest of margins, 16-15, at a packed-out RDS Arena.
Leinster are currently top of Guinness PRO14 Conference B with three wins from their opening four games. Munster are fourth in Conference A ahead of this weekend’s first round of back-to-back Interprovincial derby weekends.
