October 12, 2018-May 11, 2019 -- Het nieuwe European Rugby Heineken Champions Cup-seizoen begint met 20 eliteteams uit de Engelse Aviva Premiership, Frankrijks Top14 en de Pro12 – waarom door Ierland, Schotland, Wales en Italië wordt gestreden – dingen mee om het Europees Kampioenschap. De finale wordt op 11 mei 2019 op St James’ Park in Newcastle, Engeland gespeeld.

Reigning champions Leinster face fellow four-time winners Toulouse, Wasps, and Bath in the pool stages, while 2018 finalists Racing 92 take on Scarlets, Leicester Tigers and Ulster.

In June 2018, European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) announced the return of Heineken as title sponsor of its top tier club tournament in a new four year deal starting from the 2018-19 season. The tournament will be re-named the Heineken Champions Cup.

It marks a return for the premium Dutch beer brand as headline sponsor after a four-year period of absence when the competition went without a top tier partner following its relaunch. The European Champions Cup succeeded the Heineken Cup tournament which ran from 1995 to 2014.
