All-French final in Heineken Champions Cup

By Chris Dinsdale

May 22, 2021 - The final of European rugby’s premier club competition takes place at Twickenham Stadium, London, England. French Top 14 rivals La Rochelle -- targeting a maiden European Cup triumph -- and four-time champions Toulouse do battle in the Heineken Champions Cup final.

The Heineken Champions Cup is the top-tier competition for clubs whose countries’ national teams compete in the northern hemisphere’s Six Nations Championship.

From 1995 to 2014, the competition was known as the Heineken Cup but the name was then changed to European Rugby Champions Cup following disagreements between its shareholders over the structure and governance of the competition. Heineken returned as sponsor for the 2018-19 season, running the competition alongside European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR). It is now known as the Heineken Champions Cup.
