Plans are being developed for where the United Rugby Championship final will take place should Glasgow Warriors top the table and make it to the showpiece match. 

Glasgow currently sit four points clear of second placed Leinster after the Irish side suffered two defeats in South Africa. Finishing top of the league would - should they prevail in the quarter-final and semi-final - guarantee Glasgow home advantage in a potential final.

Warriors are currently purely focusing on finishing in the top four and are simply exploring the options should the situation transpire, with no definitive plans currently in place at present. 

We understand the quarter-final would take place at Scotstoun - partly owing to a Taylor Swift gig at Scottish Gas Murrayfield on the same day.

That means that even if Glasgow and Edinburgh are seeded to play each other than there would be no chance that the match could be moved to the capital to get a bigger crowd in. 

Glasgow are also developing plans for the semi-final to also be played at Scotstoun, but with an increased capacity. 

If Glasgow do reach the URC final, we understand it is likely that the game would be moved to Scottish Gas Murrayfield rather than to another Glasgow venue.

Celtic Park hosted the final in 2019 while Ibrox has been used for rugby before too with the Commonwealth Games Sevens played at the home of Rangers.

But it’s expected that Murrayfield would be Scottish Rugby's preferred option for the final. 

Franco Smith’s side still need to overtake Leinster in top spot to achieve that as well as going all the way to the final.

Glasgow did have a home quarter-final last year but were defeated by Munster, who went on to win the trophy by beating Stormers in South Africa. 

If Leinster reach the final as top seeds, they are likely to take it away from the 18,500-capacity RDS Arena.

They could move the final to the Aviva Stadium, where they play most of their knockout matches.

The Irish province would also have the option of playing at the 82,000-capacity Croke Park, which they have sold out for their Champions Cup semi-final against Northampton Saints next weekend.
