The American Express Community Stadium could host a European Rugby Champions Cup semi-final on the weekend of the 18th and 19th April.It would be the second rugby game that the stadium has hosted in as many months following the Under-20 Six Nations match between England and France.
For the game to be played at the Amex, Wasps must beat Toulon in their quarter-final tie at the Stade Felix Mayol on 5th April.
The London side would then have home country advantage and play the winners of the Leinster v Bath tie, which takes place at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on 4th April.
A Wasps defeat would mean that Toulon would play their semi-final fixture against either Leinster or Bath at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille instead.
