Euro date confirmed for top seeds Warriors

Worcester Warriors can confirm they will tackle French side Montpellier in the quarter-finals of the European Challenge Cup on Saturday, April 5 (kick-off 3pm) after being crowned top seeds from the qualifying stages.

Warriors finished as the top seed in the competition after collecting 29 points out of a possible 30 in Pool 2 – also top try scorers in the competition with 36 – and are therefore guaranteed a home last eight game and the potential of a home semi-final.

Season ticket holders will receive further information in the post in the coming weeks and tickets for the quarter-final go on general sale on-line on February 25.


Due to the possibility of a home semi-final, fans are now also advised that priority will be given to supporters who attend and have a stub from the quarter-final here at Sixways.
