Share your memories from the 1998 Heineken Cup Final

2 January 2018

Bath Rugby will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their Heineken Cup victory at the European Rugby Champions Cup fixture against Scarlets on Friday 12th January, and we want you to get involved. 

On 31st January 1998, Bath became the first British team to win the European Cup by beating Brive 19-18, and we want you to share your photos and memories of that day in Bordeaux.

Whether it’s your trip down to the South of France, the game itself or the post-match celebrations, we want to hear from you!

“Winning the Heineken Cup was without doubt the greatest achievement of my career. I’m so fortunate to have shared it with so many good friends.”  -  Bath Rugby captain Andy Nicol

You can share your memories on Twitter using the hashtag #AllezBath, Facebook or by emailing

Some of your moments will be shared on the website, in the matchday programme and on the big screen for the game against Scarlets.

To commemorate the anniversary, some of the players and coaches from that special day will be at the Rec to relive the victory and watch their Club take on last year’s Pro 12 winners. There will also be the opportunity to have your picture taken with the European trophy on the outfield.
