Ulster have confirmed they will play their European Rugby Cup semi-final against Stade Francais at Ravenhill in Belfast. ERC regulations state that semi-final venues must hold 20,000 spectators, but two temporary stands plus touchline seats will be installed in order to raise capacity. The date and time of the match will be confirmed after discussions with French television companies during the next few days.
