Pro14 History


The Pro14 is one of the newer rugby union competitions having only really started in the 1999/2000 season. It was then that the two Scottish sides, Edinburgh and Glasgow joined the Welsh Premier Division. The four Irish clubs joined in 2001 after an agreement was reached.

The 2001/02 season it was named the Celtic League as it included teams from Ireland, Wales and Scotland. Two Italian teams joined at the start of the 2010/11 season (Benetton & Zebre) which led to an expansion from 10 to 12 teams.

The tournament then became the Pro12 in 2011 as it reflected the amount of clubs involved. Guinness became the tournament sponsor at the beginning of the 2014/15 season and has held the title sponsorship ever since.

After the Southern Kings and Free State Cheetahs were culled from the Super Rugby tournament as SANZAAR looked for fewer teams, the Pro12 welcomed the two South African sides. Expansion was always on the lips of the organisers but expanding into Europe was difficult with the lower caliber of rugby played.

It was then that the name changed to the Pro14 to once again reflect the amount of teams involved. The format also changed as the league was split into two groups of seven. Each team now plays the other teams in their group on a home and away basis. They also play each team in the opposing group but only on one occasion.

The top four sides from each group qualify for the quarter finals. The 2019/20 season of the Pro14 was suspended due to COVID-19.
