The 2010 Amlin Challenge Cup final will be played on Sunday, 23 May.
ERC, the tournament organisers, today (Wednesday, 28 April) announced the date, kick-off times and two possible venues - Marseille or Gloucester - for the decider.
As the final has been staged in England since 2000, the Board of ERC has a preference for staging this season's game in France in the event that a French team reaches the final. If RC Toulon win their semi-final, the match will be played at the Stade Velodrome, Marseille, on Sunday, 23 May, (15.00 local time).
However, should RC Toulon lose, the final will be played at Kingsholm, Gloucester, on Sunday, 23 May, (14.00 local time).

In its sixth year the Blues Cup once again showed to be huge hit throughout the region and is a great advert for the community game as each of the six finalists across the three age groups produced rugby of an outstanding level resulting in 14 tries.
Inspired Cardiff Blues enjoyed Judgement Day at the Millennium Stadium as they secured a tense 17-13 win over regional rivals Scarlets in a feisty and enthralling encounter in the RaboDirect PRO12 on Easter Sunday.
