Leicester Tigers will face Montpellier in the European Challenge Cup Final at Twickenham Stadium on Friday, May 21 (8.00pm).

A 33-24 victory over Ulster Rugby at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Friday booked Tigers’ place in the club’s sixth European Final, and first in this tournament.

Their opponents were confirmed on Saturday evening when Montpellier beat Bath Rugby 19-10 at The Recreation Ground in the second semi-final.

Led by director of rugby Philippe Saint-Andre, Montpellier started the season in the Champions Cup before beating Glasgow Warriors 26-21 in the Challenge Cup last 16, Benetton Rugby in the only quarter-final without Gallagher Premiership representation and then Bath on Saturday evening.

The final of the Heineken Champions Cup – also at Twickenham, on Saturday, May 22 (4.45pm) – will be between Toulouse and either La Rochelle and Leinster Rugby who meet in Sunday’s second semi-final.

The finals will each host a limited crowd of 10,000 at Twickenham Stadium and tickets are on sale now, starting at £45 and £20 under-16s, via www.HeinekenChampionsCup.com.

The clubs will also receive an allocation of tickets from the reduced capacity but as numbers will be severely limited, Leicester Tigers recommend that supporters who wish to attend should purchase general admission tickets direct from the link above.

Leicester Tigers’ allocation will go on sale on a priority basis to season ticket holders on Wednesday, May 5.

All spectators who attend either final are required to read and sign up to a code of conduct. Face coverings will be mandatory within the stadium, unless a spectator is in an assigned seat consuming food or beverages, and social distancing will be required at all times.
