The 2014–15 European Rugby Champions Cup pool stage is the first stage of the 20th season of European club rugby union, and the first to be organised under the new European Rugby Champions Cup format, which replaced the Heineken Cup as the top European competition for clubs.

It will involve 20 teams competing, across 5 pools of 4 teams, for 8 quarter-final places – which will be awarded to the 5 pool winners and the 3 top-ranked pool runners-up.

The pool stage began on the weekend of 17–19 October 2014, and is expected to be completed in January 2015.

Seeding[edit]

The 20 teams have been seeded through a new system based on a clubs performance in their domestic league for previous season alone, whereas the previous tournament, the Heineken Cup, seeded teams based on performance in European Competition over 4 previous seasons.

  • English teams were seeded by performance in the 2013–14 Aviva Premiership. Clubs seeding was based on regular season competition (Rounds 1 – 22) only.
  • French teams were seeded by performance in the 2013–14 Top 14. Clubs have been seeded based on performance in the regular season and subsequent play-off phase
  • Irish, Italian, Scottish and Welsh teams were seeded by performance in the 2013–14 Pro12. Clubs have been seeded based on performance in the regular season and subsequent play-offs.

Where teams are being seeded based on play-off performance, if teams were eliminated in the same round of a knock-out tournament, their league position at the end of the regular season determined which team receives a higher seed.

Rank Top 14 Premiership Pro 12
1 France Toulon England Saracens Ireland Leinster Rugby
2 France Castres Olympique England Northampton Saints Scotland Glasgow Warriors
3 France Montpellier England Leicester Tigers Ireland Munster
4 France Racing Métro England Harlequins Ireland Ulster
5 France Clermont England Bath Wales Ospreys
6 France Toulouse England Sale Sharks Wales Scarlets
7 England Wasps Italy Benetton Treviso

Teams were then placed into 4 Tiers, each containing 5 teams, based on their seeding. A draw determined which two second seeded teams completed Tier 1, and based on this, the fourth seeded teams were allocated to either Tier 2 and Tier 3.

The brackets show each teams seeding and their league (for example, 1 Top 14 indicates the team has been seeded 1st from the Top 14).

Tier 1 Ireland Leinster (1 Pro12) England Saracens (1 AP) France Toulon (1 Top 14) England Northampton Saints (2 AP) Scotland Glasgow Warriors (2 Pro12)
Tier 2 France Castres Olympique (2 Top 14) Ireland Munster (3 Pro12) England Leicester Tigers (3 AP) France Montpellier (3 Top 14) France Racing Métro (4 Top14)
Tier 3 England Harlequins (4 AP) Ireland Ulster (4 Pro12) Wales Ospreys (5 Pro12) England Bath (5 AP) France Clermont (5 Top 14)
Tier 4 Wales Scarlets (6 Pro12) England Sale Sharks (6 AP) France Toulouse (6 Top 14) England Wasps (7 Play-off) Italy Benetton Treviso (7 Pro12)

Pool stage[edit]

The draw took place on 10 June 2014, at the Stade de la Maladière in Neuchâtel.[1][2]

Teams will play each other twice, both at home and away, in the group stage, that will begin on the weekend of 17/18/19 October 2014, and continue through to 23/24/25 January 2015.[3]

The pool stage of the competition uses the same competition point system as previous European competitions, where, based on the result of the match, teams receive:[4]

  • 4 points for a win,
  • 2 points for a draw,
  • 1 attacking bonus point for scoring four or more tries in a match,
  • 1 defensive bonus point for losing a match by seven points or less.

Based on these competition points, the five pool winners from each group, will progress to the quarter-finals, along with the three best pool runners-up from the competition. If at any point in the competition there is a tie between two or more teams from the same pool, the following criteria will be used as tie-breakers:[4]

  1. The club with the greater number of competition points from only matches involving tied teams.
  2. If equal, the club that scored the most tries in those matches.
  3. If equal, the club with the best aggregate points difference from those matches.

If this does not separate teams, and/or the tie relates to teams that haven't played each other (i.e. are in different pools), the following tie breakers are used:

  1. The club that scored the most tries in the pool stage.
  2. If equal, the club with the best aggregate points difference from the pool stage.
  3. If equal, the club with the fewest players suspended in the pool stage.
  4. If equal, the drawing of lots will determine a club's ranking.

Fixtures were announced on Thursday 14 August 2014. Alongside the exact dates and kick-off times for rounds 1 and 2.[5] Exact times for Rounds 3 and 4 were announced 10 October 2014, and for Rounds 5 and 6 were announced 19 December 2014.
