2023 Heineken Champions Cup final shifted from Tottenham Hotspur to Dublin

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will never again have the 2023 European finals in the wake of planning issues constrained a change to the Aviva Stadium.

The Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup finals will be held in Dublin on May 19 and May 20 of next year.

Competition organizers have taken action because of problems caused by the fact that the Premier League will end later than expected because the 2022 football World Cup and the 2023 Rugby World Cup will change the schedule for the game in Europe.

At first, the 2021 finals were going to be held at Tottenham’s stadium, and the 2020 finals were going to be in Marseille.

2020 final was played in secret at Ashton Gate in Bristol because of a coronavirus problem. 2021 final was played in front of 10,000 fans at Twickenham. This meant that unique plans had to be put off until 2022 and 2023.

“We are very happy to keep working with Tottenham to hold our finals there in the near future. “It is an exciting arena with a long history of hosting rugby games,” said Dominic McKay, who works for the EPCR.

“In the meantime, it’s exciting to be going back to a rugby hub at the Aviva Stadium, and we’re looking forward to inviting fans, clubs, players, and partners to what promises to be a memorable end of the week in May of next year.

“After talking with all partners, including the Aviva Stadium, Dublin City Council, and the IRFU, we are happy to bring the Heineken Champions Cup and EPCR Challenge Cup Finals back to Dublin next May.
