Pro14 Rainbow Cup 2021: Schedule, teams, live streams and how to watch in Canada

The Guiness Pro14 Rainbow Cup was created in the shadow of the 2020-21 Pro14 season, which — like most aspects of life around the globe — was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Originally slated to be a cross-hemisphere tournament involving 12 European clubs and four South African sides, a concurrent pair of tournaments emerged in its stead. The European teams would play amongst each other, while the South African sides would take part in their own, smaller tourney at the same time.

While there would be no crossover during the tournaments proper, the respective winners will face off in a final on June 19 in Italy.

Here's everything you need to know about the 2021 Pro14 Rainbow Cup:
