Ulster Rugby have confirmed that up to 10,000 supporters will be allowed to attend a pre-season friendly they're playing against Saracens in Belfast on 3 September.

The game will take place at Kingspan Stadium but it will be open to season ticket holders only.

It will be the biggest crowd to attend a rugby game in the city since their Guinness Pro14 victory over Cheetahs in February of last year.

A section of the AbbeyAutoline Family Stand will be reserved for patrons who wish to remain socially distanced, but the rest of the seating, as well as the terraces, will not see any of the Covid-19 restrictions enforced.

"All Season Ticket holders will be able to sit in their own seat or stand on their allocated terrace, as there will be no enforced social distancing whilst outdoors," the province said in a statement.

Supporters will be expected to wear masks at all others times once inside the ground. There will be a one-way system in place at Ravenhill with staggered entry and exit points, while the capacity on the terraces will be reduced to 30%.

The announcement comes after Féile an Phobail earlier this month, which saw 10,000 daily attendees descend on Falls Park for each night of the music festival.
