ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
In a bid to end that drought of Premiership victories Bath will travel to face Newcastle Falcons, who are coming off the back of nine home victories matches at Kingston Park.
Bath have won the last four meetings between the two clubs, with the Falcons last victory in the series being 33-18 at the Recreation Ground on 11 September 2004.
The European Challenge Cup may have injected some belief back into this side, with a outstanding winning margin over Bristol Rugby in the quarter-final and a keenly contested single point victory over Saracens in the semi-final.
Bath will face the fancied ASM Clermont Auvergne in the final, on Saturday 19 May kick-off 5:30pm.
