CELTIC Park has been named as the host venue for the 2019 Pro14 final.

In a landmark move, the showpiece fixture of the domestic rugby season will be held outside of a traditional rugby ground for the first time. 

Murrayfield hosted the event in 2016, the last time it was held in Scotland, and last season's final in Dublin saw a new record attendance set for the third consecutive year.

The tie will take place on 25 May 2019.

Celtic's 60,832-seater stadium is the largest football ground in Scotland and has never been used as a rugby union venue before. 

Last season's final saw Leinster defeat Scarlets 40-32 in Ireland to clinch an historic double after also triumphing in the Champions Cup.
