European Rugby Continental Shield

The aim of the European Rugby Continental Shield is to widen the footprint of club rugby across Europe and to give both emerging and established clubs in different territories the opportunity to secure two valuable places in the 2017/18 Challenge Cup.

This season's competition features clubs which have qualified from the domestic leagues of Rugby Europe member unions, Russia, Spain, Germany and Belgium, as well as four representatives from the Italian Eccellenza.

The eight participating clubs will compete in two pools with each club in Pool A playing once against each club in Pool B.

The two pool winners will then play off against Timisoara Saracens of Romania and Russia's Enisei-STM on a home and away basis to decide which two clubs will qualify for the 2017/18 Challenge Cup.

In addition, the two qualifiers will play a final match as part of EPCR's 2017 Edinburgh Finals weekend.

The Continental Shield is organised by EPCR in conjunction with Rugby Europe and the Italian Rugby Federation (FIR).
