Ulster will become the first province to welcome back fans, when they entertain Scarlets in the Rainbow Cup. 

500 lucky supporters will be inside Kingspan Stadium for their final home game of the season.

The Northern Ireland Executive is to allow limited crowd numbers return to outdoor sporting events from next week.

The 500 tickets will be made available to #TogetherUlster members.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin told OTB Sports recently that fans are unlikely to return to stadiums in the Republic of Ireland until July at the earliest. However, Minister Catherine Martin has indicated she would like to see test events begin in June.

Leinster were knocked back in their attempts to conduct test events of their own at the RDS, with Minister Martin telling The Hard Shoulder, "We weren't in a position to do it, at that time.

"We have the Return To Sport report that Minister Chambers has been working on as well, and that was done by the FAI, the IRFU and the GAA."

Ulster will operate a ticket ballot for the Scarlets game for 24 hours from 2pm on Monday (May 24).
