Champions Cup semi-final venues revealed


The venues for the Heineken Champions Cup semi-finals have been confirmed with the Irish provinces facing potential trips to Paris and Coventry.

Leinster and Ulster will meet in the quarter-final at the Aviva Stadium on March 30, with the winners set to face either Racing 92 or Toulouse in the last four.

If Racing 92 win, the semi-final will be played at La Defense Arena in Paris, but if Toulouse prevail the game will take place at the Aviva Stadium.

Should Munster overcome Edinburgh in the quarter-final they will play the winners of the game between Saracens and Glasgow. A Saracens win would see the semi-final played at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, but a win for Glasgow would result in the Aviva Stadium hosting the semi-final.

Champions Cup semi-final permutations:

Semi-final 1: Saracens v Edinburgh Rugby – Ricoh Arena (Coventry)

Semi-final 1: Saracens v Munster Rugby – Ricoh Arena (Coventry)

Semi-final 1: Edinburgh Rugby v Glasgow Warriors – BT Murrayfield (Edinburgh)

Semi-final 1: Munster Rugby v Glasgow Warriors – Aviva Stadium (Dublin)


Semi-final 2: Racing 92 v Leinster Rugby – Paris La Défense Arena

Semi-final 2: Racing 92 v Ulster Rugby – Paris La Défense Arena

Semi-final 2: Leinster Rugby v Toulouse – Aviva Stadium (Dublin)

Semi-final 2: Ulster Rugby v Toulouse – Aviva Stadium (Dublin)

The semi-finals will take place over the weekend of April 20/21

Munster's Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final against Edinburgh will be played on Saturday, 30 March [kick-off 12.45pm], with Leinster hosting Ulster on the same afternoon [kick-off 5.45pm]. Both games are live on BT Sport 3 on the eir sport pack. Subscribe here
