European Challenge Cup final: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and how to watch Leicester Tigers v Montpellier on BT Sport

Live coverage from Twickenham as one-time European giants Leicester Tigers face off against Montpellier in the final of the Challenge Cup

By Callum Davis Published: 5 May 2021 - 12.05pm

The first of two European finals in two days kicks off under the Friday night lights at Twickenham as Leicester Tigers and Montpellier do battle to be crowned 2021 Challenge Cup winners.

Montpellier are bidding to lift the trophy for the second time in their history having first won the competition back in 2016.

Leicester are taking part in their first ever Challenge Cup final, but still boast plenty of European pedigree having won the Heineken Champions Cup back-to-back in 2001 and 2002.

Will Leicester cap off a remarkable turnaround under new head coach Steve Borthwick with a first piece of silverware since 2013?

Or will Philippe Saint-Andre's Montpellier take another English scalp to win a second Challenge Cup crown?
