England, Scotland and Wales have submitted bid proposals to the European Rugby Cup to host the 2014 ERC European Club Rugby finals weekend scheduled for May 23-24. The Rugby Football Union, Scottish Rugby and the Welsh Rugby Union, each with the backing of government and local civic and tourism authorities, have submitted bids for the weekend that annually features the Amlin Challenge Cup decider on the Friday evening followed by the final of Europe's premier club rugby tournament, the Heineken Cup, on Saturday afternoon. The tender process for the 2014 ERC Finals, open to the six ERC Shareholder Unions, follows the recent withdrawal by the French Rugby Federation (FFR) of its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals due to the uncertainty regarding the conditions attached to the availability of the Stade de France (ERC Rugby).
