The MRSC have compiled a guide, including meeting points, for supporters attending Munster’s Guinness PRO12 away fixture against Edinburgh on Friday, February 3rd.

The Overview

Munster will play Edinburgh in the rescheduled Guinness PRO12 fixture on Friday the 3rd of February KO 19:35. Please note that this game will not take place in BT Murrayfield Stadium but will be held instead at their new home ground of Myreside.

Tickets

Tickets are still available through the Edinburgh Rugby website. This is a small ground so don’t delay in picking up your tickets as soon as possible!

The Meeting Points

We have two meeting points for Munster v Edinburgh – The Three Sisters and Dropkick Murphys, situated just 5 minutes walk from each other. Some MRSC member offers also apply for Saturday’s game between Scotland and Ireland in BT Murrayfield.

MRSC members and Munster Supporters will receive priority entry to the venue with 6 Nations wristbands. To avail of one of these wristbands please email enquiries@3sistersbar.co.uk with the subject ‘Munster Guestlist’ – the wristbands will be then available for you to collect at the venue. These will ensure you have access ahead of the general visitor and will be valid for Friday and Saturday when the 6 Nations game is taking place.

Due to Scottish licensing restrictions the Three Sisters can only provide offers on food but are happy to give all Munster Supporters 20% off all food on production of a match ticket or a valid MRSC membership card.

The Three Sisters have a 200” Big screen in the courtyard along with 2 TV’s in the outdoor marquee, a projector screen in the back bar room and 11 more TV’s located inside the main bar. The big screen and outdoor screens will be showing all the live sport over the weekend along with most of the screens inside. To make them easy to find they will have a projection on the outside wall with the MRSC and Munster logo to welcome our supporters. (See image below)

The owner’s of Dropkick Murphy’s are huge Munster fans and attend many of the games. As an official meeting point they are offering a complimentary 62 seater bus service to and from their bar to Myerside. As they expect this to be very popular and the bar to fill up quite quickly, they are also offering priority access to MRSC members to the bar on production of their membership card.

Both venues welcome children on the premises up until 8pm on Friday and will remain open until 5am. Dropkick Murphy’s does not provide food.

Getting to the Stadium

Myreside Stadium, Myreside Road, Edinburgh, EH10 5DB

Myreside is the new home of Edinburgh Rugby and is situated a short distance outside of Edinburgh city centre. The easiest way to get to and from the stadium from the city is probably through the Dropkick Murphys bus (see above) however this may not suit or be available to all so please see details on parking and travel to Myerside information from the Edinburgh Rugby website.  Below is a helpful map of the stadium layout.
