Kick off dates and times for the first four rounds of next season’s European Champions Cup have been confirmed.
Wasps’ first four pool stage fixtures in the European Champions Cup have today been announced.
With the Final to be hosted at the BT Murrayfield Stadium on Saturday 13 May, Wasps face trips to Connacht, Toulouse and Zebre in their attempt to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.
Having reached the European Semi Final last time out, this season's campaign starts at home to Zebre at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday 15 October, when Wasps supporters will be able to welcome back former Wasps and fans' favourite Carlo Festuccia.
A trip to four-time European Champions Toulouse is the next destination, the following week, while Wasps face Pro 12 Champions Connacht in back-to-back fixtures in December.
