The United Rugby Championship has confirmed that Ulster Rugby's Round 9 fixture versus Leinster Rugby, due to be played at Kingspan Stadium this Saturday, is one of three URC games this weekend that will not go ahead as scheduled.
The following fixtures have been postponed:
The URC games were due to take place on Saturday and Sunday (January 1 and 2), however, a number of positive Covid-19 cases in Cardiff, Dragons, Glasgow Warriors and Ulster squads have been reported.
The URC Medical Advisory Group has liaised with the medical teams at Cardiff, Dragons, Glasgow Warriors, Ulster and their respective health authorities and deemed that these fixtures cannot go ahead as scheduled.
The United Rugby Championship will now consider available dates to reschedule these games.
Ticket holders for the Ulster v Leinster game are advised that their tickets remain valid for the rescheduled fixture, and the Ulster Rugby Ticket Office will be in touch with options once the new date has been confirmed.
Please note that the Ulster Rugby Ticket Office will be closed from 4pm on Friday 31 December until 10am on Tuesday 4 January, so no individual queries can be responded to during that time.
