Scarlets will take on ASM Clermont Auvergne in the quarter-finals of the EPCR Challenge Cup at Parc y Scarlets on Friday, April 7 with an 8pm kick-off. The match will be broadcast live on S4C and BT Sport.

The details have been officially confirmed by tournament organisers following the completion of the round of 16.

Scarlets secured their place in the last eight courtesy of a gutsy 19-7 win over Brive in the West Wales rain on Friday night, while Clermont stunned Bristol in the West Country.

It will be the eighth meeting between the sides in European competition and the fourth in Llanelli.

“We have another big occasion with Clermont coming to town next week,” said head coach Dwayne Peel.

“It’s a big week, not just the match, but the build-up to it as well. We are all excited about it.”

Tickets for the match are now on sale to the public either by visiting or through the Scarlets ticket office on 01554 292939. The ticket office will be open on Sunday from 9-5pm.
