As part of its planning for the conclusion of the 2020/21 European club season, and with the unprecedented circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic at the forefront, EPCR would like to update stakeholders with regard to the 2021 Finals Weekend.

Discussions are ongoing between EPCR, the Ligue Nationale de Rugby, Olympique de Marseille and local and regional authorities to continually assess the feasibility of staging the Heineken Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup finals in Marseille on 21/22 May in the context of the ever-evolving global crisis and subject to official advice and with the health and welfare of players, club staff, match officials and the wider rugby community in mind.

Recognising the investment of time and money made by fans and a wide range of other stakeholders, a decision will be made shortly as to the viability of Marseille as a venue for the Finals Weekend and this will be communicated before the start of the tournament knockout stages on Friday, 2 April.
