The semi-finals and finals of the European Champions Cup and European Challenge Cup have been postponed until further notice to help contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
European Professional Club Rugby chiefs confirmed on Tuesday that the finals and semi-finals of both competitions will be pushed back, after organisers initially only suspended the quarter-finals.
The latest postponed fixtures were set to take place in May.
The EPCR organisers are said to be working closely with leagues and unions across Europe to restructure the conclusion to the season.
‘EPCR remains committed to completing the 2019-20 Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup season,’ it said in a statement.
‘And it is planned to reschedule the quarter-final and semi-final matches, as well as the Marseille finals, in line with fixtures in the professional league competitions, subject to advice from government and local authorities.’
