ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Cheryl Clarke, manager of the Cardiff Tourist Information Centre, said; "The Millennium Stadium has become a popular venue with rugby fans thanks to its city centre location, as dozens of bars, restaurants and attractions are only a short walk away.
"As most Cardiff hotels are fully booked, however, we are advising any fans who haven't yet booked accommodation to look for self-catering accommodation or hotels in towns such as Chepstow, Merthyr Tydfil and Swansea, which are all within easy reach of Cardiff."
