TSC and TSC Legal are delighted to have supported European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) in securing Cardiff and Bilbao as the respective hosts for the 2025 and 2026 EPCR Finals Weekends.

We have had the pleasure of working with EPCR on their host procurement processes since 2017 and the process to award the 2025 and 2026 Finals has generated the highest interest to date with 23 cities interested from 12 different countries. It is a testament to EPCR and the values of Rugby that such a highly contested process has had fairness and transparency at the heart of it.

In 2022, the EPCR Finals Weekend in Marseille generated a total economic impact of €53m, we look forward to seeing similar successes in Cardiff and Bilbao.

TSC experts on this project: Sian Jenkins, Laurent Altmeyer, Jay Williams, and for TSC Legal, Robert Jones.
