first_imgMonday Apr 21, 2014 The new European Rugby Champions Cup explained The future of European rugby is now clear after months of speculation ended recently with an agreement between the relevant parties, resulting in the new European Rugby Champions Cup. Here is a breakdown of how things will work from next season. For some time now the English and French clubs had expressed their unhappiness with the format of the Heineken Cup, culminating in talks of them intending to dispand and set up their own tournament in September of last year. After months of talks, we’re at the point where everyone is on the same page, and the European Rugby Champions Cup and the European Rugby Challenge Cup (second tier) were signed on.The two major players in the TV rights, BT Sport and Sky Sports have agreed to share coverage.The tournament, run by the newly formed European Professional Club Rugby, will feature 20 teams.European Rugby Champions Cup qualification:20 clubs qualifying through the finishing positions in their leagues from the preceding season:– top 6 from TOP 14– top 6 from Premiership Rugby– top 7 from PRO 12, with at least one club from each country participating in the league– the 20th place will be taken by the winner of a play off (first season different to following)The format and finer points of the tournament/s are a bit more complicated, but that’s the basic premise and this new video from BT Sport explains things quite clearly. As we get nearer the time, we will go through other facets of it, but for now it looks like it’s a positive step in the right direction.What do you think of the new qualification setup?

Same Same But Different Announces Lettuce, The Floozies, Boombox, More For Inaugural Lineup

first_imgSay hello to Southern California’s newest music festival, Same Same But Different (SSBD), coming September 22nd and 23rd, 2018. This inaugural two-day music & arts festival will celebrate the end of summer in a jaw-dropping setting and feature a diverse range of multi-genre musical acts that build in energy throughout the day.On Saturday, performances from Lettuce, Boombox, Through The Roots, The Family Crest, and more will take place across the festival’s two stages. Then on Sunday, headliners The Floozies, will be joined by KNOWER, Moon Hooch, Dirtwire, Capyac, and more. Performances will alternate across the two stages allowing attendees to experience each artist on the lineup without having to choose between overlapping set-times.Same Same But Different is as much about the music and arts as it is about the location. SSBD will take place at the picturesque Lake Perris Recreational Campgrounds, located just outside of Los Angeles and San Diego. Recognized as one of Southern California’s most beautiful campgrounds, Lake Perris Campground sits above it’s namesake lake and offers a variety of water recreation including swimming, fishing (shore, pier, and boat), boating, sailing, waterskiing, and scuba diving. Attendees will also be able to explore the location’s natural wonders along dedicated hiking, biking, and equestrian trails within the park, as well as enjoy festival yoga and meditation courses. This perfect weekend getaway will even feature an art-zone where guests can participate in one-of-a-kind art classes and live art installations.Festival organizers Peter Eichar and Brad Sweet explain, “we wanted to create an intimate music festival that we would personally want to attend; something to fill the gap between huge mega-festivals Southern California is home to, and smaller niche festivals that are usually genre specific.” Eichar continues, “We know what it’s like to spend an entire paycheck on a festival weekend only to get there and be stuck in the back of a massive crowd. We want to provide an alternative to that experience without sacrificing the quality of music and the overall vibe.”To purchase tickets to Same Same But Different, please visit the event website.last_img read more
