Challenge Cup final: Friday, 12 May; BT Murrayfield (20.00)

Swansea City have a home game on the weekend of the quarter-finals, against Middlesbrough, currently scheduled for 3pm on Saturday 1st April, while they are also due to be home once again on Tuesday 4th April, versus Tottenham.

The EPL television schedule for that week has not yet been confirmed so either, or both, may yet change due to television coverage. We are already in discussions with Liberty Stadium management, European Professional Club Rugby officials and our broadcast partners, along with the football club, but it may be as late as Monday 27th February before we are able to confirm the venue for this fixture. 

Because of the one-off nature of this fixture it is not included in a season membership package.

However, to reward the ongoing support from our hard core of loyal fans, we have negotiated a substantial discount of £5 on the usual match ticket rate (U16s in standard seating get £1 discount). In addition, members have until Saturday 18th March to secure their usual seat for this game should it go ahead as planned at the Liberty Stadium.
