Sandy Park

Host venue: Sandy Park

The LV= Cup 2013 / 2014 Final will take place at the home of Aviva Premiership side Exeter Chiefs, Sandy Park.

The final takes place on March 16th and promises to not only showcase some of the best up and coming rugby talent in the country but provide a truly memorable experience for supporters.

Fans of all 16 teams competing in the LV=Cup were invited to put themselves forward to represent their club, to help celebrate Sandy Park being named the final venue as well as the upcoming LV=Cup campaign.

The lucky competition winners gathered at the stadium on Tuesday at the launch of the LV= Cup, donning their club colours to take over captaincy duties for a photo session, before putting their rugby skills to the test on the Sandy Park turf alongside players from the LV= Cup teams.

Chosen to host the LV= Cup Final, state-of-the-art Sandy Park became the home of the Exeter Chiefs in 2006 and has since gone on to become a favourite with rugby fans; staging the 2007 Churchill Cup fixtures, an international 'A' game between England Saxons and the Irish Wolfhounds last year, and most recently, the Championship double headers. The stadium is also set to host three Rugby World Cup fixtures during the 2015 competition.

"As a club we are thrilled to have been selected as the venue for the LV= Cup final," said Tony Rowe OBE, Chairman & Chief Executive of Exeter Rugby Club.

"Over the years we have hosted a number of top games, not just in the Premiership and in Europe, but also a clutch of international fixtures including the Churchill Cup.

"As rugby supporters know Sandy Park is a great match-day experience and we've no doubt that will be evident when the LV= Cup final is held here. We look forward to welcoming all fans to the West Country for what will be the first silverware of the season."
