Cape Town - Reigning Heineken Cup champions Toulon and Super Rugby champions, the Chiefs, could face each other in a 'World Cup of Clubs' final.

According to the ESPNscrum website, French newspaper Midi Olympique claims the two teams have agreed on February 2, 2014 as the date for the cross-hemisphere match.

It would come in the midst of the Six Nations, but before the start of the 2014 Super Rugby season.

The newspaper claims the match is likely to take place either in Nice's Allianz Arena or in Monaco's Stade Louis II stadium.

Several TV channels have reportedly already shown interest in broadcasting the game.

Toulon won the Heineken Cup, beating fellow French side Clermont Auvergne 16-15 in the final in May, while the Chiefs successfully defended their Super Rugby crown when they beat the Brumbies 27-22 earlier this month.
