The ‘Champions Cup’ Looks Set To Revert Back To Former Glory

Back in business.

For many of us the ‘Champions Cup’ will always be known as the ‘Heineken Cup’ despite the competition restructuring a few years and adopting a new name.

But it now appears the famous European trophy will revert back to its former glory, with Heineken close to coming back on board as the tournament’s title sponsor according to reports by Midol this morning.

The GUINNESS Rugby Hotel is back! Win a VIP overnight stay for two in the exclusive GUINNESS Rugby Hotel in Glasgow's Celtic Park for the GUINNESS PRO14 Final.

The only thing is ‘Champions Cup’ will likely remain in the name (the current format won’t be changing either) so we’ll probably be looking at the ‘Heineken Champions Cup’. Abbreviate that and we’ve got…. the Heineken Cup!

With Leinster crowned champions over the weekend and now Heineken set to come back on board – the natural order is set to be restored after a few shaky years. Absolutely wonderful. Now bring back the old trophy!
