Marseille will become the sixth French city to stage a Heineken Cup final involving Munster when the Reds take on champions Toulon on Sunday.

Marseille is the third largest city in France, and the Munster Rugby Supporters Club have organised a number of meeting points in the city for fans this weekend. The three designated meeting points are the Shamrock Pub and O'Malley's, located on Quai de Rive Neuve, and O'Brady's on Avenue de Mazargues.

On Sunday Munster fans will be joined by members of the Toulon supporters club at O'Brady's and there is an invitation to travel to the stadium with their supporters in a red double-deck coach.

All three designated venues will show the first semi-final between Saracens and Clermont Auvergne at Twickenham on Saturday.

Supporters have been advised to travel to Stade Velodrome early on Sunday as there is a large-scale redevelopment of the ground taking place.
