This will be the first time the two teams have faced each other since the pool stages of the 2015/16 Champions Cup tournament.

Both matches against Sarries, who return to the Premiership this season, will act as preparation for Ulster ahead of the newly-launched United Rugby Championship, and the challenges they will face in this year’s Heineken Champions Cup.

Admission to the home pre-season friendly on September 3 is included in 2021/22 Season Tickets, as well as access to all home regular season fixtures in the United Rugby Championship and the Champions Cup.

Existing Ulster Rugby Season Ticket holders have until 5pm this Friday (July 30) to renew their packages, and can do so online at ulsterrugby.com/seasontickets.

New purchasers can ensure they are notified first about new Season Tickets as they become available by registering their interest here.

The availability of match tickets sold individually will be dependent upon available capacity, in line with government regulations. Further details will be released in due course.
