Munster’s Cork home reverts to Musgrave Park

Munster Rugby and Independent News & Media have mutually agreed to bring their naming rights sponsorship agreement to an end.

The Irish province’s Cork based stadium will no longer be referred to as Irish Independent Park and will return to its former name of Musgrave Park with immediate effect.

Munster Rugby head of commercial and marketing, Dave Kavanagh, said:

We are very appreciative of Independent News & Media’s support and commitment over the last number of years in what has been a very successful partnership and naming rights sponsorship for the province.

The successful redevelopment of the ground is directly attributed to the naming partnership with INM and for this we now have superb facilities in place with a venue that is widely used by the community, hosts international events and concerts, and is central to rugby development in the region.

Musgrave Park opened in 1940 and is the Cork home of Munster Rugby, although the province play the vast majority of their senior men’s fixtures at Thomond Park in Limerick.
