Glasgow Warriors to compete in Investec Champions Cup
European rugby’s premier competition has a new name ahead of the 2023/24 campaign, after global bank and wealth manager Investec was named as the new title sponsor of the Champions Cup by competition organisers EPCR.
The news comes as Glasgow Warriors continue their preparations for a return to the top tier of European rugby, having enjoyed a memorable run to the Challenge Cup final during the 2022/23 season.
Franco Smith’s men will face three former Investec Champions Cup winners during the pool stages, having been drawn to face Northampton Saints, Exeter Chiefs and Toulon – alongside competition debutants Bayonne – in Pool Three.
The new format will see the top four teams from each pool qualify for the Champions Cup Round of 16, with the fifth-placed teams dropping into the Challenge Cup at the same stage.
Both of Glasgow’s home pool matches against Northampton Saints and Toulon, as well as all nine BKT URC home fixtures and The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Friendly against Zebre Parma, are included in a 2023/24 Season Ticket – for more information, click here.
