Champions Cup draw to take place tomorrow

Champions Cup Draw to take place in Switzerland tomorrow.

Munster will learn their opposition for the 2017/18 Champions Cup pool stages as the draw will take place tomorrow (Thursday).

In total, 20 clubs from across the Premiership, Guinness PRO12 and Top 14 will compete in the 2017/18 Champions Cup.

Each club will be divided into four tiers based on their status as championship winners and/or qualification positions in their respective league tables.

Despite Munster finishing out the regular season as table toppers in the Guinness PRO12, Scarlets’ victory in the Final sees them enter Tier 1 automatically alongside Premiership winners Exeter Chiefs and Top 14 champions Clermont Auvergne.  With five places available in Tier 1, Munster will enter a draw alongside Wasps and Toulon (English and French runners up) for the remaining two spots.

Once tiers are completed, the main draw for the five pools will be made, during which, some clubs may need to be placed directly into a pool in order to ensure that key principles apply.

We will keep you updated as to who Munster get in the draw for next year.
