ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
It will be the fourth Heineken Cup final played on a Sunday - the previous occasions were in Cardiff in 1996, Twickenham in 2004 and Murrayfield in 2005 - with the record attendance for a Heineken Cup final the 74,600 at the 2002 final between Leicester Tigers and Munster at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
