About

Heineken Cup

The European Cup, known as the Heineken Cup or H-Cup for sponsorship reasons and restrictions, is an annual club competition contested by the leading club, regional and provincial teams from England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

Established in 1995, the highly-regarded tournament sees 24 teams compete in six pools on a round robin basis with the pool winners and the two best runners-up progressing to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and then the final which is staged on a neutral ground.

The competition has been dominated by English, French and Irish teams with Toulouse leading the way with four victories while Wales, Scotland and Italy are yet to provide a winner.
