Stadium Information

As you may already know the MRSC Bar has been extended and revamped further over the course of this season. Upgrades are to continue in the coming weeks with the new area soon to have windows fitted. This will connect the venue to the pitch so members will be even better situated to soak up the entire pre-game atmosphere.

At this Friday’s game, you might notice some changes including new televisions with upgrades for our younger members too including a chalkboard wall. Members are encouraged to bring a guest to see the upgraded bar once the guest has a valid match ticket.

The MRSC Bar can be found on the first floor in the West Stand via door 18

The stadium turnstiles will be open from 5.45pm, with all bars inside the ground open at the same time.

Please note that there will be stewards at all gates checking tickets. These stewards may ask for I.D. and they have the right to refuse entry if sufficient I.D. for Junior, Student or O.A.P tickets is not provided.

The Fan Zone Plaza will be open once again from 5pm with the MRSC on hand offering the younger members of the Red Army the chance to sign up to the Junior Club. There will be plenty of competitions and giveaways so make sure you pop in to say hello.

The Guinness Dug Out Bar will be open a little earlier from 5pm, with a live band performing in the Plaza.

There’s lots of activity for all the family – the Bank of Ireland Family Funzone will be open for our younger supporters.  You can try out being Munster’s “Sponsor for a Day” and get your photo taken with your name on the front of the jersey, with the help of Bank of Ireland.
