ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
The ERC Board recognise there are many details to be resolved, such as tournament participation and shareholding commitments.
The ERC Board considers these to be a matter of absolute urgency in order to address the needs of the tournaments going forward.
On that basis, the ERC Board has agreed to meet again next Tuesday (8 April, 2003) to resolve these issues.
