Milan’s San Siro has been announced by the European Rugby Cup board as host of the 2015 Heineken Cup final.
The Italian venue is the country’s largest with a capacity of 80,000, and if home to Serie A football clubs AC Milan and Inter Milan. However, the stadium will only host the rugby union competition if an agreement can be reached on a new European club rugby Accord for next season and beyond.
Alfredo Gavazzi, President of the Federazione Italiana Rugby (FIR), said: "We are especially proud that a Heineken Cup final could be staged in Italy as this is a tournament which plays a key role in the continued development of our top clubs, and which also is critical for the progress of our national team."
