The stadium is also set to host three Rugby World Cup fixtures during the 2015 competition.
Recognised for enabling the next generation of international rugby players to break through, the LV= Cup has unearthed a wealth of talented young players in recent seasons. As well as staging this season's LV= Cup final, hosts Exeter Chiefs also count the 2013 LV= Breakthrough Player and England star, Jack Nowell in their ranks.

The LV= Cup derives from the RFU Senior Knockout Cup, which has been played since 1972 and has been previously called the John Player, Pilkington, Tetley's Bitter, Powergen and EDF Energy cups.
The competition sees 12 Aviva Premiership clubs and four Welsh regions play over four weekends, followed by the semi-finals and final. Each team will be guaranteed two home and two away inter-pool fixtures, with the top teams from each pool qualifying for the knockout stages
