The Premiership Rugby Cup was created to replace the Anglo-Welsh Cup which had been running since 2005 when the Welsh regions joined the then English-only Powergen Cup.[2] In the 2017–18 Anglo-Welsh Cup, all four of the Welsh regions finished bottom of their pools.[3] In May 2018, the Welsh Rugby Union announced that they were going to be setting up a Welsh under-23s competition for their regions and would thus be unable to commit to Anglo-Welsh Cup games.[4] Premiership Rugby Limited, which organises the English top flight, then announced that the Anglo-Welsh Cup would be replaced by the Premiership Rugby Cup, which would be solely for the English Premiership clubs.[5] The Cup was created to continue to allow younger English Premiership players to compete in more matches at Premiership stadia.[6]


The format for the competition will be the twelve Premiership teams grouped into three pools of four with at least one club having one local derby match in their groups.[5] The draw will be made at the BT Tower in London on 6 July 2018.[7] The matches will be held over the end-of-year rugby union internationals and Six Nations Championship weekends.[2] The three pool winners and the best runner-up will enter the semi-finals with home advantage given to the team with the better record in the pool stage and the final would be held at the home of the highest ranked club.[5] The winning club will receive £500,000.[7]
