2015 European Rugby Challenge Cup Results

The 2015 European Rugby Challenge Cup will be the second season of the second tier club rugby competition in Europe. It replaces the Amlin Cup.

There will be 20 teams playing in the competition, the teams that did not qualify for the European Rugby Champions Cup from the Premiership, the Top 14, and the Pro 12, teams promoted to the Premiership and Top 14 and two qualifiers from Qualifying Competitions held earlier.

Teams play in 5 pools of 4 teams and will play each team in their pool twice, home and away.

Following pool play, the top team from each pool and the best 3 runners-up will progress to the play-offs: quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.


In 2015 the qualifiers was determined by a qualification competition played amongst teams from the domestic competitions of Russia, Spain, Portugal and Italy. The final stage of qualification was played between the 2 pool winners of that competition and the Romanian champions, Baia Mare and Rovigo from Italy.
