Ravenhill will explode on Friday night when Ulster take on Leicester Tigers in Pool Five of the Heineken Cup as the new European campaign begins (kick-off 8pm).
There is always a special atmosphere at the Belfast venue for the big Euro ties and the Ulster fans never need any encouragement to raise the bar.
Although work continues on the redevelopment of Ravenhill, there will be 14,000 people at tonight’s sold-out match.
The Belfast stadium is feared by clubs across Europe and only a small few have managed to emerge with victory.
Leicester’s last two visits were memorable for the home fans as Ulster secured try scoring bonus points in both with handsome and comfortable victories.
Ulster head coach, Mark Anscombe, values the support the club get at every home game.
But on Friday night he wants it to go up one more level.
“The guys love playing at Ravenhill. Against Glasgow I thought the crowd were quiet and wondered if it had something to do with the new surrounds of the ground.
“But to my relief against Benetton Treviso, that ‘Ravenhill Roar’ was back and I am urging our fans, and there will be more of them this week, to give it that again, plus some more.”
Anscombe added: “I cannot say enough, but I really mean it when I do, that the support we get means so much to the guys.
“How it lifts them and when they scream out for the Ulstermen, it really is hairs on the back of your neck type stuff.
“We need that for 80 minutes on Friday night and the support we get is one of the reasons why teams do not want to come here.”
