European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) Finals Weekend Hospitality – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium 2024
Heineken Champions Cup
The prestigious Heineken Champions Cup is coming to the 62,850 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the very first time on Saturday 25th May 2024. The best teams in European Rugby will be coming face to face looking for the glory of winning the title.
It has been almost 30 years since the very first Champions Cup, then known as the Heineken Cup, which took place in the 1995/96 season at the National Stadium (Cardiff Arms Park) in Cardiff. The inaugural final saw Toulouse face Cardiff RFC, and it was the French side who emerged as 21 – 18 winners after extra time in front of a 21,800 strong crowd.
Interestingly, English and Scottish teams did not participate in the tournament initially, but teams from these nations did start competing in the Champions Cup in the 1996/97 season. It was the Leicester Tigers who were the first English side to make the final, only to lost 28 – 9 to Brive at the National Stadium.
The following season’s tournament saw Bath become the first English side to win the Heineken Cup, beating holders Brive 19-18 in a very tight match at the Parc Lescure in Bordeaux.
Ulster were then the winners in 1998/99, but English sides were then dominant between 1999 and 2002, when the Leicester Tigers won the tournament twice (2000/01 & 2001/02),with the Northampton Saints also experiencing glory in 1999/00.
It was not until the 2014/15 season that the competition became the Heineken Champions Cup as it is known today.
The first final since the name change was played in front of a 56,622 strong crowd at Twickenham which saw Toulon emerge 24 – 18 victors against fellow French club Clermont. English clubs then went on to win four of the next five tournaments between 2015 and 2020. Saracens won the title 3 times in this period (2015/16, 2016/17 & 2018/19), with the Exeter Chiefs also being declared champions in 2019/20.
Following Toulouse’s win in 2020/21, the most recent final was contested between La Rochelle and Leinster. It was the French side who won the title in the end, beating Leinster 24 – 21 at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.
It is indeed Toulouse who have won the Heineken Champions Cup the most times with 5 wins in total (1995/96, 2002/03, 2004/05, 2009/10 & 2020/21). They are closely followed by Leinster (4 – 2008/09, 2010/11, 2011/12 & 2017/18) and Saracens (3 – 2015/16, 2016/17 & 2018/19).
There is no better way to experience what is set to be an enthralling and tense Heineken Champions Cup Final at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium between two of European Rugby’s best teams than with an Eventmasters VIP Hospitality Package. Experience all of the action in some style with Eventmasters.
EPCR Challenge Cup
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be hosting the prestigious EPCR Challenge Cup for the very first time on Friday 24th May 2024. 18 of the best teams in European Rugby will be competing to be declared as champions.
The very first EPCR Challenge Cup took place in the 1996/97 season, when it was known as the European Challenge Cup. The inaugural final took place at the Stade de la Méditerranée between Bourgoin and Castres – Bourgoin emerged as 18 – 9 winners in front of a 10,000 strong crowd.
French clubs won the first four Challenge Cup Finals. Following Bourgoin, Colomiers (43 – 5 vs. Agen in 1997/98), Montferrand (35 – 16 vs. Bourgoin in 1998/99) and Pau (34 – 21 vs. Castres in 1999/00) all tasted glory.
Between 2000 and 2006, it was the turn of English clubs to experience a period of dominance. Out of the 6 Challenge Cup Finals, Harlequins (2000/01 & 2003/04) and Sale (2001/02 & 2004/05) both won twice, with Wasps (2002/03) and Gloucester (2005/06) both winning the final once each.
It took until the 2009/10 Challenge Cup for a club not from England or France to win the tournament. It was Cardiff RFC who were the first Welsh side to win the final, beating 28 – 21 against Toulon at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.
The name of the competition changed to the European Rugby Challenge Cup in the 2014/15 season, with Gloucester beating Edinburgh 19 – 13 at the Twickenham Stoop in the first final since the name changed.
French clubs then resumed their dominance of the competition between 2015 and 2022. Montpellier narrowly beat the Leicester Tigers 18 – 17 at Twickenham in 2020/21 before Lyon tasted glory in the latest Challenge Cup Final in 2021/22, beating fellow French side Toulon at the Stade de Marseille.
The only non-French teams to win the tournament between 2015 and 2022 was Cardiff RFC (31 – 30 vs. Gloucester in 2017/18) and the Bristol Bears (32 – 19 vs. Toulon in 2019/20).
Clermont have won the EPCR Challenge Cup the most times with 3 wins (1998/99, 2006/07 & 2018/19. The French club are closely followed by the likes of Harlequins (2000/01, 2003/04 & 2010/11) and Gloucester (2005/06 & 2014/15), who have 3 and 2 wins respectively.
There is no better way to experience what is set to be an enthralling and entertaining Challenge Cup Final at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium than with an Eventmasters VIP EPCR Challenge Cup Hospitality Package. Experience all of the action in some style with Eventmasters.
