Guinness PRO14

  • What is the current status of the league?

    Guinness PRO14 have suspended the league on an indefinite basis due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. The league have agreed upon a strict list of criteria that would enable the Championship to recommence. Proposals regarding how to restart the season will be reviewed in the near future.

    However, no decision on a definitive re-commencement date can be made until four key criteria can be met within our respective competing territories:


    • Public Health Authorities cease to prohibit the resumption of sport and group training
    • Travel restrictions between our territories are lifted
    • No forced isolation or quarantine orders are in force when visiting our territories
    • Player welfare is safeguarded, including requirement for a suitable pre-recommencement training period, to be established in conjunction with the high-performance personnel at our participating unions and teams
  • Does this mean the season is over?

    This is not yet an outright cancellation of the season, but what this does mean is that the Guinness PRO14 season is unlikely to resume for a significant period – possibly some months. The club continues to work with the Guinness PRO14 to try and plan a resumption of the season if all four previously mentioned criteria are met.

  • Will there be a Guinness PRO14 Final?

    The Guinness PRO14 Final originally scheduled for 20 June at Cardiff City Stadium has been cancelled. Should any final be played as part of the 2019/20 season, it will be hosted by the team with highest seeding based upon league records from this campaign.

  • How will the current Guinness PRO14 suspension affect any match or hospitality tickets that I have already purchased?

  • Will Guinness PRO14 matches be rescheduled to play at a later date?
