ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Next year's Amlin Challenge Cup final has also been selling strongly and tickets are currently on sale for the game at the RDS on Friday, 17 May 2013. For further information, supporters should visit Dublin 2013 section for regular updates.
The next opportunity to purchase Heineken Cup final tickets will be through official hospitality packages, and combined accommodation and ticket packages, and these offerings will be available in the coming weeks, while 12,300 tickets have been set aside for distribution by the two finalist clubs in May 2013.
ERC, in partnership with Fáilte Ireland, developed a Golden Ticket pre-sale offer for supporters who had previously bought Heineken Cup final tickets in advance. The Golden Ticket guarantees admission to both the 2013 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, as well as a one-day Dublin Pass, and all 5,000 tickets were snapped up within days.
Meanwhile, the IRFU's allocation of 4,000 Heineken Cup final tickets which the host Union offered to its patrons, has also been sold.
