The home of Wasps has been selected as home advantage for Premiership champions Saracens in their Heineken Champions Cup semi-final match against Munster Rugby on Saturday 20 April (kick-off 3pm).
Both teams – with a host of international stars such as Owen Farrell and Peter O’Mahony potentially on show – will be battling it out in the Midlands this Easter to secure a place in the final on Saturday 11 May at Newcastle’s St James’ Park.
A Ricoh Arena semi-final was guaranteed at the weekend after Saracens defeated Glasgow Warriors 56-27 in their quarter-final clash. Munster ensured they would be Saracens’ opponents after edging out Edinburgh 17-13 in the Scottish capital.
The sides return to Ricoh Arena for a repeat of the 2008 Heineken Cup semi-final, where Munster ran out 18-16 winners before eventually going on to win the coveted trophy for a second time.
Stuart Cain, Managing Director at Ricoh Arena, said: “This match is going to see two of the top teams in European rugby battling it out to take one step closer to our continent’s most prestigious prize – right on our doorstep.
“It’s fantastic for the city of Coventry and the wider region to be hosting a game of this magnitude.
“Rugby from across the UK and overseas will be in Coventry for the occasion, providing an Easter weekend to remember both on the pitch, as well as off it for the local economy, with restaurants and hotels set to benefit.”
There will be a Fan Village at the game - open from 12.30pm-2.30pm - with a DJ, food and drinks available, and this will re-open after the final whistle.
