Competition format

As for now, the tournament comprises 20 teams. 6 of them are the best Aviva Premiership participants, another 6 are the best Top 14 clubs, and 7 more come from the Pro14. Starting from the 2018/19 season, the remaining 20th participant will be either the Champions Cup winner or one of the best Challenge Cup teams, not qualified from their national leagues.

At the beginning of the season, teams are divided into 5 equal pools. Within pools, participants play each of their competitors once at home and once away. 5 teams, showing the best Champions Cup rugby results in their pools, come to the knockout stage. The same fate meets 3 best runners-up.

In the knockout stage, teams are rated 1 to 8 in accordance with their pools’ performance. The first 4 teams host their competitors on their home grounds. According to the current format, the 1st team meets the 8th, the 2nd plays with the 7th, and so on. 

In semi-finals, either the highest or the lowest rated team meets either the 4th or the 5th club (depending on their head-to-head results). The winners of another two knockout matches play a semi-final fixture, too. On this stage, if both semi-finalists played at home (or away) previously, the privilege of a home ground is given to the higher rated team. Otherwise, the club, which played away in the first round, hosts the semi-final at home. Both semi-finals are single-legged. These matches define, which two teams will proceed to the Rugby Champions Cup final.

Champions Cup top-scorers

There are some teams, which can boast the best Champions Cup rugby results in the tournament’s history. French Toulouse are absolute top-scorers — they won the competition 4 times and became runners-up twice. Both Irish Leinster and French Toulon have 1 trophy less than the record-breakers. Clermont and Leicester Tigers are also notable — they became runners-up for record-breaking 3 times.
