ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
ERC, the Heineken Cup organisers, have confirmed that both teams have received an equal allocation of 21,400 tickets for the Heineken Cup semi-final, which will be televised live by RTE, Sky Sports and Sport +.
Both provinces will distribute tickets through their club networks, supporters clubs, schools and to sponsors, commercial partners, squads, management and officials. This process has already begun and both provinces have indicated that due to the huge level of demand no tickets will go on general sale to the public for the game.
