Ulster will begin their European Champions Cup campaign at home to Wasps.

The sides will go head to head at Kingspan Stadium on October 13, having played a pre-season friendly at the same venue- a fixture the Ulstermen lost 26-15.

Following their initial European fixture, Jono Gibbes' men travel to France to take on new boys La Rochelle on October 22, before a double-header with Harlequins (firstly at Twickenham Stoop on December 10, then in Belfast on December 15).

After the turn of the new year, La Rochelle come to Northern Ireland, before the pool stage concludes with a journey to Wasps. The dates for both of those games are yet to be confirmed.


Quarter-finals: 29th March - 1st April 2018

Semi-finals: 20th - 22nd April 2018

Final: Saturday 12th May, San Mamés Stadium, Bilbao
