Tigers to face Mayol Challenge?

Rumours are circulating that Toulon President Mourad Boudjellal has decided against moving his side's Blue Ribbon Heineken Cup Quarter Final against the Tigers to either Lyon or Marseilles, shunning up to €500,000 in the process, to give his side their best chance of getting through to a maiden semi final.  

ERC has the power to force sides to move a quarter final to a ground with a capacity greater than 15,000 and with the Mayol holding only 14,750 there were concerns in France that ERC could have forced a move.  However the Mayor of Toulon, Hubert Falco, has confirmed that they can squeeze in another 1,000 with temporary seating to avoid that possibility and keep the match in the city.

Tigers will have the right to a 3,938 allocation if the game goes ahead at a 15,750 capacity Mayol.
