Details of some of the first half of the 2014-15 Guinness PRO12 season's match dates and kick-off times have been finalised for Ulster. Although clubs and broadcasters have agreed certain fixtures, others have yet to be confirmed. Ulster fans are still awaiting the dates of three matches and broadcast details of a total of seven.

Sky Sports have cherry-picked the basket as far as Les Kiss' men's fixtures are concerned.

Their autumn/winter schedule includes Ulster's series opener against Scarlets in Llanelli on Saturday, September 6.

Sky have also lined up the home date against last season's beaten finalists, Glasgow Warriors, plus Ulster's away tie with Ospreys five days before Christmas.

There is also a change in Ulster's home-match norm, with no 7.05pm Friday night starts.

September: Saturday 6: Scarlets v Ulster (2.40pm), Friday 12: Ulster v Zebre (7.35pm), Friday 19: Cardiff Blues v Ulster (7.35pm), Saturday 27: Zebre v Ulster.

October: Friday 5: Ulster v Edinburgh (7.35pm), Saturday 11: Ulster v Glasgow Warriors (5.05pm), weekend October 1st or November 1st or 2nd: Ulster v NG Dragons (k-o TBC).

November: Friday 21: Ulster v Ospreys (7.35pm), Friday 28: Munster v Ulster (7,35pm).

December: Saturday 20: Ospreys v Ulster (5.15pm), weekend 26, 27 or 28: Ulster v Connacht (k-o TBC).

January: Saturday 3: Leinster v Ulster (2.40pm), weekend 9, 10 or 11: Benetton Treviso v Ulster (k-o TBC).
