ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 total over one million people have attended ERC matches this year, making it the most supported season of European rugby, and certainly the most entertaining, with all three finals going down to the wire.
In June watch out on the site for next season's Heineken Cup Pool line-ups when players, coaches and fans will once again start to again size each other up before the race for a place in the 10th anniversary Heineken Cup Final in Edinburgh begins in earnest.
ERC Rugby will return in October when the Heineken Cup and Parker Pen Challenge Cup competitions kick-off again, it will be the 10th season of ERC tournaments, and we are sure you are looking forward to it as much as we are here!
Have a great summer. Derek McGrath, ERC Chief Executive.
