Rugby - Champions Cup

The premier tournament below international level in the northern hemisphere involves the leading clubs from the English Premiership, French Top 14 and multi-national PRO14 leagues.
From season 2014-15, 20 teams were split into five Pools, where they play a home and away round-robin. The Pool winners and the three best runners-up progress to the quarter-finals, played at the home grounds of the four top ranked teams. 
The semi-finals are hosted at neutral venues, with the final staged at a top international ground.
Prior to 2014/15 the tournament was called the Heineken Cup.
