Leinster Rugby have annouced today that they will be installing an additional 630 seats at the RDS Arena as they attempt to meet the increased demand for tickets for the Guinness PRO14 semi-final.
The last-four decider pits the Blues against rival province Munster on Saturday week at the Ballsbridge venue which will seat just under 19,000 supporters following the increase.
Head of Commercial & Marketing at Leinster, Kevin Quinn, said; "As expected the demand for this game from our Season Ticket Holders and wider supporter base has been huge and we were keen to meet that demand as best we could.
"We have seen how special a place the RDS can be for games like these and in particular for interprovincial games and we were keen that we accommodated as many supporters as possible and in doing so, help make the RDS a cauldron of noise for Leo and the team."
The Blues are set to jet off to Bilbao on Thursday evening following training as they embark on a massive fourteen days in the provcince's history.
Leo Cullen's men will face Racing 92 in the Champions Cup final on Saturday before facing Munster the following week and then a possible PRO14 final on May 26 at the Aviva Stadium if they can beat their provincial rivals.
A limited number of tickets have gone on general sale. Details can be found on the official Leinster website.
