2022 EPCR Challenge Cup Results

The 2022 European Rugby Challenge Cup will be the 7th season of the second tier club rugby competition in Europe. It replaced the Amlin Cup.

There will be 20 teams playing in 2 pools of 10 teams each. Teams will play each of the other teams in their pool once. 

The top 6 teams from each pool will then combine with 4 teams from the European Rugby Champions Cup to play a round of 16. This will be a knock-out format down to a finals series.

Following financial problems at Wasps and Worcester Warriors, both teams were banned from the Premiership and therefore became ineligible for the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The draw was amended to make Pool B have 8 teams and the teams drawn to play the banned teams would play each other twice in the season.

 France

  • Bayonne

  • Brive
  • Perpignan
  • Pau
