Glasgow Warriors drawn in Pool Three of Heineken Champions Cup
A Heineken Champions Cup pool containing four former winners of the competition awaits Glasgow Warriors in the 2023/24 season, after Franco Smith’s men were drawn in Pool Three at today’s draw in London.
The draw sees the Warriors instantly reunited with Toulon after last month’s EPCR Challenge Cup Final in Dublin, the three-time champions also returning to the top tier after a season away.
Familiar foes Exeter Chiefs also lie in wait once more for the Warriors, after the two teams were drawn together in the pool stages for the sixth time in the last decade.
A first competitive meeting with Northampton Saints since the 2015/16 Champions Cup group stages awaits when the pool stages kick off, the 2000 champions having made the Premiership semi-finals in 2022/23.
Tournament newcomers Bayonne complete the fixtures for Glasgow Warriors, as the Basque club prepare to face the Scotstoun outfit for the first time in a competitive match on their first outing in the top tier of European rugby.
BKT United Rugby Championship winners Munster round out the pool, with the new tournament rules meaning that teams from the same league will not play each other in the pool stages.
Full fixture information, venues and broadcast details will be confirmed by EPCR in due course.
The club’s two home European pool stage matches are included in a 2023/24 Season Ticket – renewals are open until 10am on Tuesday 27 June, with pre-sale opening on Thursday 29 June.
