Perpignan fans celebrate winning the Top 14 at Stade de France on Saturday
More than half the tickets available for public sale for the Paris 2010 Heineken Cup final at Stade de France on Saturday, 22 May, 2010 have been sold already - almost a year ahead of the showpiece occasion.
Advance sales for the final of the 15th season of European club rugby's premier tournament have topped 30,000 just over a fortnight after being made available for public purchase. Demand for tickets is unprecedented for what is the first final in France since 2001.
The public sale allocation for the Paris final is approximately 55,000 tickets while ERC retains a further 15,000 to be shared between the two finalists clubs.
Tickets are priced between 18 and 120 Euros and may be subject to booking fees
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
