ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Perpignan aim to sell out all 55,000 places at Montjuic for the first ever Heineken Cup game to be played in Barcelona and with that in mind, the club has created a dedicated internet site which includes images of Barcelona FC stars such as Lionel Messi, Carlos Puyol and Xavi playing with a rugby ball.
"Saturday, 9 April will be a celebration of Catalan rugby," said Goze of the eagerly-awaited clast between Perpignan and their French rivals, Toulon.
The other all-French Heineken Cup quarter-final also takes place in Spain with Biarritz Olympique hosting champions Toulouse at the Estadio Anoeta in San Sebastian on Sunday, 10 April.
