Munster set to face Crusaders in 'Clash of Champions' game

The match comes off the back of the Irish side’s URC success in Cape Town.

MUNSTER HAVE announced they will face Crusaders in a ‘Clash of Champions’ game on 3 February, 2024 (kick-off: 5pm).

The match comes off the back of the Irish side’s URC success in Cape Town and sees them face the New Zealand-based team, who secured their seventh successive Super Rugby Pacific championship on Saturday in Waikato as they overcame Chiefs 25-20.

The game will also see a reunion with former Munster coach Rob Penney, who has agreed to take charge of Crusaders from 2024. 

The fixture will be part of a pre-season tour that also sees the Super Rugby side face Bristol Bears on 9 February.

The venue in Munster has yet to be confirmed while ticket details will be announced in due course.
