    this isn't the MRSC site shefflin .. I'd suggest you look on that site instead if you have questions about the supporters club policies


    http://www.munsterrugbysupporters.com/munstersup/www/


    the priority order for tickets has been in place for a while now.

      Another question. Will the 10 year ticket holders be given priority over supporters club members for away games?


      By Dual members, do you mean Full members, Combined season ticket ?


      Re 10 years : If you look at the commitment given in


      http://www.thomondpark.ie/extendo/we...mondPark/Terms AndConditions.pdf
      4. The right to a ticket, purchased in respect of a seat, relates only to Rugby Union matches held under the auspices of the Munster Branch IRFU atThomond Park, Limerick, which are under their sole and exclusive control and jurisdiction, in which the following team is playing: Team Munster Senior Professional Team.
      What you get for the next ten years –
      • Heineken Cup pool match ticket in Thomond Park (1 per match for 3 matches).
      • Magners League pool match ticket in Thomond Park (4 matches).
      • Option to purchase ticket for any other representative match run by Munster Rugby in Thomond Park (Subject to advance bookings).
      • Option to purchase ticket for any other home match run by Munster Rugby moved to a larger ground (e.g. Quarter Finals etc.).
      • Option to renew if scheme extended.
      There is no commitment for Away matches to 10 year ticket holders.

        And in fairness, you don't speak for Munsterfans.com, LL. Shefflin is entitled to ask here. Whether the answer is available, is a different matter,

          Talking of tickets, isn't it nice to know that one HECclub respects its supporters and empathises with their ticket worries:

            They also hiked the price of their quarter final tickets.....
            I applaud their efforts but I can't believe that season ticket holders can't
            find friends (etc) to give/sell their tickets to on their own; those who
            want to make a quick buck will still do so etc etc

              In the case of Manchester United a lot of season ticket holders are based in Ireland and far reaching parts of the UK meaning that you dont always get a friend to take them. A friend of mine has a United season ticket. He pretty much only goes to the Arsenal Chelsea and Liverpool games maybe a few more and all the others are sold on.


              The likes of Leicester want to have their ground full at all times for Bar income and for the sale of merchandising. If you get novelty visitors to the ground for these games they are more likely to buy merchandise.


              Based on what Point has posted, you are better off being a member of the supporters club than a member of the 10 year ticket scheme, where away games are concerned, especially for Heineken Cup finals where 40,000 tickets are sold in advance.

                Cheap an unnecessary shot, OD. Leicester have been a professional club for the best part of 25 years whereas the likes of the Irish provinces are in catchup mode (and unfortunately Munster are hand-tied by the AIL clubs). They have a long way to go but it isn't fair to ignore the massive head start the likes of Leicester have had on the other side of the game.

                  AND they apparently put a great deal of effort into their on-line and catalogue sales.


                  Re MRSC v 10yr tkts, yes that's my preferred route.

                    Neither cheap nor unnecessary, Point. By far the longest threads on this site (in all of its versions) are always about ticket shortages and touting - for both HEC and International matches. It's long past the time that that the IRFU and Munster Branch Brains Trusts got their act together on this one.

                      They have a lot of bigger issues to deal with than this.

                        How do you make this out? Apart from supplying most of the players and supporters to Munster rugby what else should the clubs be offering?

                            I am sure Shefflin knows very well that this isn't the offy MRSC site, and I am sure he also know that there are a number of MRSC committee members who read and post here.

                                Actually thinking about the 10 year tickets, the club's members and the MRSC's members have someone to represent them at Munster Rugby meetings, but what about the 10yrtkt holders ? Who will represent their interests ?


                                If thereare variousallocations for away games, shouldn't the potentially 4,00010yrtkt holders be included in that ?
