2017 European Rugby Challenge Cup Results

The 2017 European Rugby Challenge Cup will be the 4th 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.


The final two qualifiers come from a play-off between the winners of the pools in the Continental Shield competition and the two qualifiers from the 2016/17 European Rugby Challenge Cup. The pool winners from the Continental Shield were Mogliano from Italy and Krasny Yar from Russia. The two teams from the Challenge Cup were Enisei-STM from Russia and Timișoara Saracens from Romania.
