Guinness Pro14 Final cancelled

Posted by

The 2019/20 Guinness Pro14 Final at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 20th June has been cancelled due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak.

It was due to be the first Final held on Welsh soil but with the uncertainty over the season finishing and the possibility of Cardiff City now needing their home ground into the summer as the EFL Championship season continues, it has been decided to call it off.

Refunds will be offered to supporters who have already bought tickets automatically, with full information available at pro14.rugby/final.

The Pro14 have also announced that the 2019/20 season will only re-commence once the following four criteria have been met;

  • Public Health Authorities cease to prohibit the resumption of sport and group training.
  • Travel restrictions between our territories are lifted.
  • No forced isolation or quarantine orders are in force when visiting our territories.
  • Player welfare is safeguarded, including requirement for a suitable pre-recommencement training period, to be established in conjunction with the high-performance personnel at our participating unions and teams

At the point that those criteria are met the Pro14 will then look at proposals for the restarting of the season, with stakeholders being worked with to prepare a number of options.

If there is a Final played it will be hosted by the side with the highest ranking at the end of the regular season.
