Challenge Cup Quarter-Final postponed

Challenge Cup Quarter-Final postponed

The club's European Challenge Cup Quarter-Final against Bordeaux-Bègles has today been postponed, as EPCR announced that all European last-eight ties will now not be played on the previously scheduled dates of of 3/4/5 April.​

Amid growing public health concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was taken during a conference call today (Monday, 16 March) to postpone the eight matches on the weekend in question and to suspend the European club rugby season.

While respecting all further directives by governments and local authorities, EPCR, in conjunction with the relevant leagues and unions, remains committed to trying to find a solution which will enable it to complete the 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup tournaments at such a time as that aligns with preventative measures undertaken by an overwhelming majority of sport’s governing bodies and tournament organisers in Europe.

EPCR’s priority is the health and welfare of players and club staff, and an update regarding the knockout stages of the tournaments will be communicated to all stakeholders as soon as practicable.

All supporters who've booked a flight only or full travel package with the club's Official Travel Partner, Sportsbreaks.com (Clarity Sports) for next month's Quarter-Final have been emailed and offered a full refund. Please keep an eye on your inboxes.
