Niall Rynne, Chairman of the Aviva Stadium Board, said: “This will be the fourth time for Ireland to host the Heineken Champions Cup final and the second time for the Aviva Stadium to play host. The old Lansdowne Stadium was host in both 1999 and 2003, while the redeveloped Aviva Stadium held the final in 2013 when Toulon won the first of their three titles in-a-row. This will, of course, be the first time for the Aviva to host the EPCR Challenge Cup, although it was played in Ireland previously at the RDS in 2013."

Rugby has always been at the centre of Sandymount Hotel. Owner John Loughran commissioned th impressive bronze Line Out statue in front of the hotel.  On Match Days, the hotel hosts a BBQ with burgers, a bag drop and an unbeatable match day atmosphere after which guests can begin their one minute walk to the Aviva Stadium.
