The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has considered the findings of an independent audit report of the Greene King IPA Championship semi-finalists assessing their eligibility for promotion to the Aviva Premiership next season.

London Irish and Yorkshire Carnegie have met the minimum standards criteria to the satisfaction of the RFU based on the following stadia: Madejski Stadium (London Irish) and Headingly Carnegie (Yorkshire Carnegie).

Ealing Trailfinders and Doncaster Knights did not apply for the audit and therefore cannot be promoted to the Aviva Premiership.
