2015 HEINEKEN CUP FINAL AT SAN SIRO

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."
