Leicester Tigers will meet Ulster Rugby at home in the European Challenge Cup semi-finals on the weekend of April 30-May 1/2.

Tigers are in the semi-finals for the second successive season after victories over Brive and Bayonne in the preliminary stage and then Connacht and Newcastle Falcons in the knockout rounds.

The draw was performed at BT Sport on Sunday afternoon by Craig Doyle, Brian O’Driscoll and Lawrence Dallaglio at the conclusion of the weekend’s fixtures in both European competitions.

Tigers were the first name from the bowl and will be at Mattioli Woods Welford Road to welcome an Ulster team who eliminated Northampton Saints with a 35-27 win at Franklin’s Gardens in their quarter-final.

The other semi-final gives Bath Rugby a home draw against French outfit Montpellier.

Kick-off dates and times will be confirmed as soon as possible by tournament organisers EPCR and their broadcast partners.
