Rugby Champions Cup formed

The new competition instigated by the English and French top-flight clubs will be named the Rugby Champions Cup.

The announcements by Premiership Rugby and the Ligue Nationale de Rugby on September 10 confirmed that the Top 14 and Premiership Rugby clubs had instructed their leagues to put in place a new competition in time for the 2014/15 Season.
The new Rugby Champions Cup will be open to teams from all three leagues in Europe.

The competition will be based on the principles of qualification on merit, a strong competition format, equality between the leagues, higher commercial values for the teams and expansion into new European markets.

The Top 14 and Premiership Rugby clubs have already confirmed their participation in the new competition and a joint working group has been created to prepare all necessary elements in good time for the 2014/15 season.
