A second-tier European professional club rugby tournament – now officially named the European Rugby Challenge Cup – was established in 1996.

For the 1996/97 and 1997/98 seasons, the name of the tournament was the *European Conference.

For the 1998/99, 1999/2000 and 2000/01 seasons, the name of the tournament was changed to the **European Shield.

From 2001/02 until 2013/14, the tournament was named the Challenge Cup.

For the 2002/03, 2003/04 and 2004/05 seasons, a third-tier tournament known again as the ***European Shield was established. This was competed for by clubs defeated in the first round of the Challenge Cup.
