Thomond to go to 26,000

3.14.2006

Great news for Munster Rugby fans as the IRFU confirmed today that talks with local residents in the area have been completed successfuly and Thomond is likely to go to 26,000 capacity stadium.

There was a worry that the pershing cold of Musgrave park was to become home to Munster Rugby but thankfully the residents of Limerick pulled through in the end and Munster can remain in their spiritual home.

Cant wait for that first Heineken Cup game at a bigger and redder Thomond Park, though i doubt the expansion will make getting tickets any easier. I wonder is the expansion likely to alter the feel of the ground, I know some soccer teams in the UK encounter such a problem, but I have to feel that fans like Munster's will make an atmosphere wherever they are put.
