The winners of the Heineken Cup quarter-finals featuring London Irish and Perpignan and Saracens and Ospreys will play their semis on home soil, European Rugby Cup (ERC) said on Tuesday.
Reuters reports that should London Irish win they would face Toulouse or Cardiff Blues at Twickenham while a Perpignan victory would mean a semi-final at the Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier.
Ospreys will be rewarded with a semi-final at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium if they triumph while victory for Saracens would mean they face Munster or Gloucester at Coventry City Football Club’s Ricoh Arena.
“We are delighted to have four world-class stadiums on stand-by in France, England and Wales to host the various semi-final options,” ERC chair Jean-Pierre Lux said in a statement.
“This means fans will know exactly where they are going once their team has won through to the last four.”
Montpellier’s Stade de la Mosson has never hosted a Heineken Cup match while Twickenham and the Millennium Stadium have staged finals but not semis.
The quarter-finals are this weekend, with the semis on April 26-27Tweet
