Leicester Tigers will host ASM Clermont Auvergne in the opening home game of the Heineken Champions Cup after a trip to Wales to face the Ospreys in Round 1.

The tournament kicks off on the weekend of December 9/10/11, with French visitors Clermont due at Mattioli Woods Welford Road a week later.

Rounds 3 and 4 are in January, when Tigers go to France and then welcome the Ospreys in the last weekend of the pool stages.

The top eight teams in each of the two pools then progress to the Round of 16 and the beginning of the knockout stages in April. The ninth and 10th-ranked clubs from each pool go into the EPCR Challenge Cup.

Tournament organisers EPCR have today revealed the order of fixtures in both club competitions. Exact dates, kick-off times and TV coverage will be announced following the conclusion of negotiations with broadcasters.
