Following its postponement due to the death of head coach Anthony Foley, Munster's Pool 1 European Champions Cup tie against Racing 92 has been re-scheduled for Saturday, January 7, 2017.

Foley, 42, passed away in a Parisian hotel in the early hours of October 16, when Munster were initially meant to face Racing in what would have been their second European game of the season.

Following discussions between European Professional Club Rugby, PRO12 Rugby and the Ligue Nationale de Rugby, the game will go ahead early next year in the Stade Yves-du-Manoir at 3.45 Irish time.
