Investec Champions Cup: Both semi-finals sell-out two weeks in advance

Champions Cup trophy

EPCR have confirmed both Investec Champions Cup semi-finals have fully sold out, in a welcome boost for the sport in the Northern Hemisphere. 

All 110,000 tickets for both Leinster vs Northampton Saints and Toulouse vs Harlequins were sold in a matter of hours.

82,300 fans are expected to pack out Dublin’s Croke Park for Leinster vs Northampton Saints.

The fixture in the Irish capital is also the first rugby game at Croke Park for 15 years. Coincidently, Leinster were also involved in a European semi-final then too, as they faced Munster in the Heineken Cup semi-finals.

A further 33,000 fans are also set to watch title favourites Toulouse play Harlequins at Le Stadium. Le Rogue et Noir won on their last visit to Le Stadium, beating Racing 92 in the last 16.
