As the European club season builds towards a thrilling climax next month, tickets are selling fast via epcrugby.com for the high-profile Champions Cup final in Edinburgh.
With such high demand for the BT Murrayfield showpiece on Saturday, 13 May, EPCR has decided to close ticket sales for the match during the coming semi-finals weekend in order to ensure that supporters of the Champions Cup finalists will have an equal opportunity to purchase tickets once the identity of both clubs is known.
Ticket sales will therefore be closed from 23.00 UK and Irish time tomorrow (Friday, 21 April) and the precise timing of the re-opening of the sales platform will be announced as soon as possible on epcrugby.com and via the official tournament social media channels.
The two finalists who are set to compete for the continent's premier club trophy will be known on Sunday following this weekend's hugely-anticipated semi-finals. Sell-out crowds are expected at both fixtures as Munster Rugby take on holders Saracens at Dublin's Aviva Stadium on Saturday, with ASM Clermont Auvergne up against Leinster Rugby at the Matmut Stadium de Gerland in Lyon the following day.
The increasing popularity of the Champions Cup has been reflected in attendances this season with the aggregate gate for the four quarter-final matches up by 62% compared with 2015/16. Overall attendances are set to pass the 1 million mark for the season which will take the all-time total for the tournament to over 18 million.
