Marseille Won't Host Champions Cup Or Challenge Finals This Year.

: 07/09/2020 - 11:26

Marseille will not host the Heineken Champions Cup or Challenge Cup Finals in 2020.

European professional club rugby and local organisers will not stage the matches at the Stade Velodrome due to uncertainties around the coronavirus pandemic.

A new venue or venues will be determined in due course, with the finals scheduled for the third week in October.

Marseille will instead be the venue for the 2021 finals, with the Tottenham Hotspur stadium now the host for the 2022 decider.

Tournament favourites Leinster have a quarter final with Saracens, with Ulster to face Toulouse.

Both of those matches are slated for September.
