England, Scotland and Wales have submitted bid proposals to host the 2013-14 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup Finals.

European Rugby Cup Ltd, the organisers of both competitions, confirmed the bidders after France withdrew its application over the uncertainty of the availability of the Stade de France. The three unions hope to host the Challenge Cup final on May 23 and the Heineken Cup final a day later at the end of the forthcoming season.

"The bids will now be considered by the board of ERC with a decision set for early July," an ERC statement read.

The final of Europe's premier club competition was last staged at Twickenham at the end of the 2011-12 season when Leinster triumphed over Ulster. The Millennium Stadium last hosted the title-decider in 2010-11 when Leinster overcame Northampton and the title-decider last visited Murrayfield in 2008-09 when Leinster edged out Leicester.
