This year's competition won't start until mid-November due to the Rugby World Cup, with Ulster starting on Saturday, November 16 (kick-off 1pm) as they meet Bath in a competitive game for the first time in 10 years.
French side Clermont are the visitors to Kingspan Stadium for the second half of the November double-header, that game scheduled for Friday, November 22 at 7.45pm. Ulster will aim for a repeat for their 39-32 win in December 2016.
That means the back-to-back fixtures, once again, come against Harlequins, just as they did two years ago. Those games take place in December, first in Belfast on Saturday, December 7 (3.15pm) and then at the Stoop on Friday, December 13 at 7.45pm.
Ulster's trip to Clermont will be played on either January 11 or 12, ahead of the final game at home to Bath on Saturday, January 18 (3.15pm).
