It's that time of year again and the Munster Rugby ticket office will open its doors next Tuesday (March 21) as current season ticket holders get their chance to renew season tickets and Munster Rugby Supporters' Club membership for next season.

This term has seen a massive turnaround in the fortunes of the province, with Rassie Erasmus' side preparing for a Champions Cup quarter-final against Toulouse at the Thomond Park at the start of next month.

It's a huge game, and the two-time European champions will look to return to the last four for the first time since 2014, when Toulon beat them 24-16 in the semi-final - that year Munster also played Toulouse in the quarter-finals.

Munster have also performed heroics in the Pro12 this season, and they are third in that competition with five games to go. They play Zebre at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi in Round 18 on Saturday, March 25.

So it's a crucial couple of weeks for the province, and season tickets will be snapped up fast ahead of another promising campaign.

The existing season ticket holders who wish to retain their seats for next season have three weeks to do so before the renewal period closes.

And those who wish to move their seats must also do that before April 11, which would mean they move their entire allocation.

Reminder

The public sale of season tickets and Supporters' Club membership will be on sale from midday on April 12 until 4.0 on May 17.

Those who wish to receive a reminder of that date can email mrsc@munsterrugby.ie to be placed on the mailing list.

The season ticket pricing and MRSC membership remains the same for 2017-18 after the positive feedback received on the current packages.
