Leicester Tigers will take on Toulon in the quarter-final of the Heineken Cup on Sunday, April 7 (kick-off 5.30pm local time).

The venue for a first-ever meeting between the two clubs in Europe is still to be confirmed by tournament organisers ERC.

ERC have confirmed that Toulon wish to host the game at their Stade Felix Mayol home, subject to the ground's capacity reaching 15,000.
