ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Clermont, who have won an inpressive two European Challenge Cup titles (2007 and 1999), are chasing their first French Championship honours and face Stade Francais Paris on Saturday next in Stade de France.
ASM demonstrated their strong European pedigree by beating three-time Heineken Cup winners Toulouse in the French championship semi-finals on the road to Saturday's final.
