The Aviva Stadium will host the 2023 Champions Cup and Challenge Cup finals in May next year, replacing Tottenham’s stadium


European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) announced today that Dublin’s Aviva Stadium will host the 2023 Heineken Champions Cup and EPCR Challenge Cup finals, replacing the originally chosen Tottenham Hostpur Stadium.

The two flagship matches, which represent the pinnacle of elite European club rugby, will take place on Friday 19th May and Saturday 20th May 2023 in the home of Irish rugby.

The 2023 Champions Cup Final returns to Dublin after a decade as RC Toulon defeated ASM Clermont Auvergne in 2013 to win the famous silver prize for the first time.

Dublin 2023 ticket sales will begin with a priority window starting Friday (20 May) to allow fans to secure their seats and plan their weekend well in advance.

Fans can register for the priority window by subscribing to ECPR’s The Offload newsletter and then have access to a limited number of Golden Tickets – the best tickets at the best prices between Friday 20th May and Friday 20th May May 27th.

The 2023 finals were originally scheduled to be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium; However, with the Premier League ending later than usual due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup taking place in November and December, and coupled with the impact of the 2023 Rugby World Cup on the EPCR calendar, it was decided to relocate the Aviva Stadium to be selected as the venue for next season Venue.

And Heineken have confirmed they will remain title sponsors of the Champions Cup, extending a long-standing association with Europe’s elite club competition.

Heineken’s close association with the tournament spans nearly 30 years, since rugby was professionalized in 1995 and the Heineken Champions Cup final has been played three times before at the Aviva Stadium, formerly Lansdowne Road.

This is the first time Aviva has hosted the Challenge Cup, although it was previously held at the RDS in Ireland in 2013.

Niall Rynne, Chairman of the Aviva Stadium Board, commented: “We are delighted to host the Heineken Champions Cup and EPCR Challenge Cup finals. It’s always one of the big weekends in European rugby.

“This is the fourth time that Ireland has hosted the Heineken Champions Cup final and the second time that the Aviva Stadium has hosted it. The old Lansdowne Stadium hosted both 1999 and 2003, while the redeveloped Aviva Stadium hosted the final in 2013 when RC Toulon won the first of their three consecutive titles.” The Aviva Stadium will host the 2023 Champions Cup and Challenge Cup finals in May next year, replacing Tottenham’s stadium
