Ulster will play their final home fixture of the Guinness Pro14 Rainbow Cup in front of 500 spectators at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday 29 May.

In line with the latest relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions, announced yesterday evening by the Northern Ireland Executive, the stadium will open its gates to a limited number of fan club members for the final home game of the season, the visit of Scarlets.

"Together with the IRFU, Ulster Rugby continues to work closely with Belfast City Council and the NI Executive to safely welcome back the maximum number of fans allowed within current guidelines," a statement read.

Leinster had hoped to stage a test event at the RDS in Dublin that would have seen 2,000 fans at some stage in May but could not get the go-ahead from the Government.

Leinster proposed that pre-match antigen testing would take place and that capacity would have been capped at 2,000 spectators, just 11% of normal match-day capacity and tickets made available to spectators from the same household or bubble.

The upcoming Ireland Women's international cricket series against Scotland at Stormont will also be played played in front of spectators.

The series will be played from this Monday to Friday.
