Harlequins' Head of Rugby, Paul Gustard, said: “The Heineken Champions Cup is one of the elite club sporting competitions there is globally, so we are delighted to be back in it competing this year.
“We have worked hard in the last 12 months on and off the field to qualify for this competition, and we are determined to ensure that we respect the endeavour and effort that we as a squad put in last year. We want to make ourselves proud, the club proud and our fantastic supporters proud.
“A round 1 trip to Clermont is a tantalising one for the players and supporters. Clermont are undoubtedly one of the giants of European rugby and are also of course the reigning Challenge Cup champions so will prove as always to be a formidable contest and one that we relish.
“It’s important that we perform at the level required to be competitive and successful across all six rounds if we are to progress through to the knock out stages. As a playing and coaching group we are constantly looking to improve and challenge ourselves to move the team and the club forward and when the time comes to turn our attention to the Heineken Cup we will do so with total vigour and excitement."
