The fact it's on a Friday is a bit of a nightmare for people but there is still decent value to be had, if you have an A/L day to use.
The sport that unites Catholic, Protestant and dissenter has had its day of days. Pity anybody who can't enjoy it. Some day.

There's a really good Italian across the road from the Ibis at Sol Central, locals highly recommend it.

They close at 10 :roll:

Should we drop them an email and tell them there is a ball of Leinster supporters staying in the Ibis who will probably be starving after the game and need feeding and that they should stay open late :D

The prices are specifically to milk exiles. Northampton are selling an LC cup match, the Leinster match and a AP game for £65 on the terrace.

At least the euro price is not too bad now after Brexit

It was exactly £35 per ticket for the terrace c section that we were in. A tenner more after three years isn't so bad.

I remember thinking that was quite expensive even back then. And the euro cost doesn't help an exile.

Anyone else able to find the STH link to purchase tickets for this game yet or am I being especially dense? Only seeing the option to purchase associate membership.

edit: just a delay in the link coming up. Match tickets nearly more expensive than the flights and hotel combined

Bought them off the Northampton site. Worked out at €50 each. Anyone know why there's such a huge price difference? I could understand a couple of euros for admin/postage but €9.50! That's a bit Irish

Looks like there are no tickets left on the Northampton site now.
This of course could be temporary
