Munster ticket sales slow for Stade Francais clash in Paris

Munster will be light on travelling support for Saturday’s re-fixed European Champions Cup tie with Stade Francais at Stade Jean Bouin in Paris.

Munster Rugby confirmed yesterday that it had sold just 160 tickets for the game, 40% of sales coming from supporters based outside Ireland.

A spokesperson did suggest, however, that this figure should be boosted through ticket sales available elsewhere, with perhaps double that figure ultimately being at the venue to support the Irish province.
