Thomond to keep it's name

Munster have abandoned plans to sell the naming rights to the redeveloped Thomond Park, the IRFU and the Munster Branch confirmed this evening.

Instead, the new stands at the 26,000-seater stadium, which is due to be completed by the start of the 2008-2009 season, will be marketed on an individual basis to help offset the €43-million cost of redeveloping the famous old venue.
A statement released by the Munster Branch explained that "having examined the possibility of a Naming Rights Partner as part of its commercial programme for the new Thomond Park, the Branch has decided that this is not a concept it will progress further."
