Heineken signs deal with Heineken Cup The Heineken Cup (known as the H Cup in France due to restrictions on alcohol sponsorship) was one of two annual rugby union competitions organised annually by European Rugby Cup from 1995 to 2014. The tournament involved leading club, regional and provincial teams from the six International Rugby Board (IRB) countries in Europe whose national teams compete in the Six Nations Championship: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. In addition to these six countries, Romania competed in the inaugural tournament, but did not feature afterwards. Teams that did not qualify for the Heineken Cup entered the second tier competition, the European Challenge Cup.
