It’s been a difficult season for everyone so to get to this point is a testament to the outstanding work of the clubs and players and we are really looking forward to these games. We’re really pleased to be holding the final at Kingsholm after Gloucester Rugby secured the right to host in 2020 but didn’t get the chance due to the early ending of the season.

“It’s great to see BT Sport are taking the semi-finals and final. Broadcasting on BT Sport and also streaming on widens the potential audience. Visibility is so important and we’re pleased BT Sport will showcase three marquee fixtures. Last but certainly not least, having the opportunity for supporters to attend is brilliant and we’d like to thank Gloucester for their ongoing support in making this happen.”
