Stade Francais French Championship final 38-20 victory on Saturday over Perpignan completed the picture for Heineken Cup participation for next season.

Stade will now be seeded number one in France, Perpignan two, Castres three and Toulouse four.

The pools and fixtures for the 2004/05 Heineken Cup will be announced on Tuesday next, and the time and date of matches in the early rounds of matches will be confirmed in August following meetings with broadcast partners across Europe.

Please note that the Pools for the 10th anniversary Heineken Cup campaign, and the fixture weekends for the 2004/2005 season, will be released to the media after lunch (approximately 2.30pm) on TUESDAY, 29 JUNE.

Fixtures will be released to correspond to the six Pool weekends, but will not be assigned to specific dates or kick-off times until approximately the middle of August. The reason for the times and dates of the fixtures being released in mid August is that ERC will be consulting with its broadcaster partners to decide the televised fixtures.
