EPCR is the organisation responsible for European rugby competitions, which are the Champions Cup and the Challenge Cup. Premiership Rugby teams compete in one of the two competitions, depending on their final finishing position in the league.

Premiership Rugby supports EPCR by providing commercial support and delivering English audiences to their competitions. Premiership teams have been crowned Champions of Europe twice in the first three years of the Champions Cup, both Saracens.
