Louis Ludik, who retired at the end of last season, will return to Kingspan Stadium on Friday night to receive a fitting farewell from the Ulster faithful.

Ludik, who spent seven years at Ulster, making 112 appearances, will make a welcome return to Kingspan Stadium on Friday night for the Heineken Champions Cup clash with Northampton Saints.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions at the time, unfortunately the end of Louis' career coincided with matches being played behind closed doors, so the Ulster support were unable to give him a proper send-off.

A very limited number of tickets are still available for Friday's game, so make sure you don't miss out.

The hugely popular South African native, who now calls Belfast home, will make his way on to the pitch at half-time where he will be interviewed by Cool FM's Pete Snodden before the Ulster fans will have the opportunity to show their appreciation for Ludik's contribution to the province.


An incredibly committed player who could slot in anywhere across the outside backline, Ludik was one of the most respected and likeable members of the Ulster squad, as Club Captain Iain Henderson commented at the time of his retirement:

"Louis has brought so much to the club during his time with the province, and I would like to thank him for that on behalf of all the players he has ran out onto the pitch alongside, both past and present. He is a true Ulster man now, and we are proud to call him one of our own."
