EPCR today announced the new dates for the postponed knockout stage matches of the competition, with the playing of matches still subject to government guidelines and placing the health and welfare of players, club staff, match officials and supporters at the forefront.

It is now planned that the quarter-finals of both tournaments will be played on the weekend of September 18/19/20 with the semi-finals scheduled for the weekend of September 25/26/27.

Exact fixture dates, venues, kick-off times and TV coverage will be announced in the near future.

The European season will conclude with the Heineken Champions Cup final on Saturday, October 17.

EPCR remains committed to staging the match in Marseille – but the situation is under review in light of public gathering and international travel restrictions which might be in place at the time of the finals.

EPCR and the local organising committee in Marseille intend to clarify the position regarding the finals, including details of ticket refunds where applicable, as soon as possible.
