ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 French giants, who are the most successful side in European rugby, play host to a Connacht team who are enjoying their first season in European rugby's premier competition.
The Irish province has found it tough going in their first season of Heineken Cup rugby and still haven't won a game so far this season and have lost all four games in their Pool during this campaign.
But Connacht will be looking to put that right when they lock horns with one of the iconic sides of the European game for the first time on French soil on Saturday evening.
