ERC still holding out on revenue pay-out


THE directors of ERC resolved at a Board meeting in London today (Wednesday, 19 February) to further defer a decision regarding the release of instalments of ERC’s distributable revenues to its six shareholder countries.

The resolution was taken with the ongoing negotiations in relation to the future of European club rugby tournaments in mind, and the directors will reconvene to consider the matter again at a Board meeting on 11 March next, following a meeting of ERC shareholders on 10 March.

The ERC Board of Directors is made up of representatives from the six unions of England, France, Ireland, Italy, Wales and Scotland, as well as representatives from three club bodies, namely the Ligue Nationale de Rugby (LNR), Premiership Rugby (PRL) and Regional Rugby Wales (RRW).

The ERC shareholders are the six unions of England, France, Ireland, Italy, Wales and Scotland, and the Ligue Nationale de Rugby.
