ULSTER’S KINGSPAN STADIUM TO HOST PRO12 FINAL

Irish rugby province Ulster have secured a deal to host the 2015 PRO12 Play-Off Final at the Kingspan Stadium on Saturday 30th May.

The ground will be the first to host the showpiece game under a new criteria of selection by the PRO12 organisers.

Usually, the highest-placed Play-Off finalist from the regular season gets to pick a venue which has a capacity in excess of 18,000, but officials have moved away from that method.

Ulster Rugby Chief Executive Shane Logan said: "We are extremely pleased that our bid to host the PRO12 Final was successful.

"While we hope that our province is in the final, we are fully committed to working with the PRO12 to ensure that regardless of who contests it, that this event is a huge success."
