The Heineken Championship Cup (or European Rugby Champions Cup) features the finest domestic rugby teams from England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, South Africa and Wales. The competition usually begins between October and December, when 24 teams play one another during the pool stage. The top 16 teams then progress to the knockout stages and the final is held in May.

Just like other rugby union tournaments, the Heineken Cup awards points based on match outcomes. A winning team receives four points and drawing teams receive two points. Additionally, the competition uses the bonus points system whereby teams earn one point for scoring at least four tries or for losing a game by seven points or less.
