Toulon, Leinster and Wasps await in Europe

17 June 2015

Some of the biggest teams in Europe will arrive at the Rec next season, with Bath Rugby's pool for the European Rugby Champions Cup confirmed.

Having been drawn into Tier One for the competition, Bath have been selected in Pool 5 and will face three former European Champions in French giants Toulon, Irish heavyweights Leinster and fellow Aviva Premiership title challengers Wasps.

Commenting on the draw, Head Coach, Mike Ford, said: "European competition is the pinnacle of Club rugby, and we're really excited to have been drawn against three former Champions of the competition. Each team presents their own challenges, and whilst we may be more familiar with Wasps, it means we know just how competitive they can be. We want to test ourselves against the best, and can't wait for the challenge that awaits."

Exact fixtures will be confirmed later in the summer, with the tournament kicking off in November.

Don't forget that all home pool games in the Champions Cup are included in your Bath Rugby season ticket – current Season Ticket Holders have until this Friday (19th June) to renew their current seats.

Current Season Ticket Holders should have received their renewal notifications via email. Alternatively, you can renew your season ticket here.
