ERC have confirmed the kick-off times and dates for the Heineken Cup and Challenge Cup quarter-finals to be held in April.

In the Heineken Cup, Saracens will be up against last season's beaten finalists, Ulster, in the second of the Saturday fixtures with a venue to be announced at a later date, while Sunday's matches on 7 April will kick off with the meeting of pool stage top seeds, Harlequins, and two-time former champions Munster at the Twickenham Stoop.

With all matches broadcast live, and with capacity crowds expected at every venue, the curtain will come down on the weekend when French heavyweights, Toulon, take on Leicester Tigers, who won the tournament in 2001 and 2002, in the first ever meeting between the clubs in Europe.

Five of the clubs in the last eight - Clermont, Harlequins, Leicester, Munster and Ulster - have European titles to their names, while Montpellier will be appearing in the knockout stage for the first time.
