Heineken Cup

Twickenham Stadium, 20 May, London 2007

Twickenham Stadium, London will host the 12th Heineken Cup final on Sunday 20 May 2007.

Twickenham Stadium hosted the world’s biggest club fixture in 2000 and 2004, with English sides carrying off the Heineken Cup silverware on both occasions. Northampton Saints pipped Munster 9-8 in the fifth final on 27 May, 2000 and London Wasps took the title from Toulouse, 27-20, on 23 May, 2004.

The 2000 final was played in front of a then record Heineken Cup crowd of 68,441 and the current record of 74,600, from the 2002 final at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium between Leicester Tigers and Munster, could be beaten next year at the newly completed, 82,000 seater London venue.

Tickets for the 2007 Heineken Cup Final

ERC and the RFU have confirmed that tickets for the London ‘07 Heineken Cup final at the Twickenham Stadium are on sale from Ticketmaster (+44870 9020000 or click here) and fans are encouraged to purchase early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are available from £25 and for the first time ever a cashback ticket scheme will be available for the Heineken Cup final at Twickenham.  The early bird scheme, which is open to all clubs within the RFU and all clubs participating in the tournament, offers 20% cash back to clubs. The scheme works by clubs selling adult and junior tickets for the final at face value and receiving 20% back of the ticket price from the RFU to fund club initiatives. The scheme will be launched in September 2006 when players are back for the new season and runs until Christmas.

Facts and Figures

English teams have won both previous Heineken Cup finals at the ground. Northampton Saints beat Munster 9-8 in the 2000 final and London Wasps triumphed 27-20 in the 2003 final against Toulouse

The redevelopment of the South Stand at Twickenham means the ground will have a capacity of 82,000 for the final – over 7,000 more than the current tournament record attendance for a final set when Leicester Tigers beat Munster at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in 2002.

The Twickenham final in 2000 saw 68,441 fans go through the turnstiles with 73,057 attending the thrilling 2004 final.

The 10 Heineken Cup finals have been staged at seven grounds – Cardiff Arms Park (1996 and 1997), Stade Lescure (1998), Lansdowne Road (1999 and 2003), Twickenham (2000 and 2004), Parc des Princes (2001), Millennium Stadium (2002) and Murrayfield (2005).

The 12th Heineken Cup final at Twickenham in 13 months time will be the 819th match played in the tournament.

England will have six clubs battling to win a place in the prestigious cup final on home soil while Biarritz Olympique secured an additional seventh place for France as a result of their semi-final win over Bath Rugby last season.
