The EPCR have announced the new dates for the knockout stages of the 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup, which were postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Dependent on government guidelines, and with the health and wellbeing of players, club staff and officials a priority, the quarter-finals of both tournaments will be played over the weekend of 18/19/20 September with the semi-finals scheduled for a week later - the weekend of 25/26/27 September.

The Challenge Cup final is due to be played on Friday 16th October, with the Heineken Champions Cup final the following day, Saturday 17th October. Marseille is the intended location for both finals, but this is currently under review.

The 2021/21 tournaments are scheduled to being on the weekend of 11/12/13 December, but new formats are being looked at as a consequence of widespread disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak. A 24-club Heineken Champions Cup with eight representatives from each of Europe’s leading league competitions is one of the options under discussion.
