ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 club is happy to welcome Saracens back to our stadium next season," said Watford owner Laurence Bassini.
"They approached us to see if we could take into account their current situation with regard to their ongoing Copthall Stadium negotiations.
"Given the long-standing relationship between Watford and Saracens, it is only right that we considered their request."
