BREAKING: Dates announced for remaining 2020 Six Nations Fixtures

The dates for the remaining 6 Nations games from the 2020 championship have been confirmed.

Ireland and Italy are the only teams with two fixtures remaing as they kick off the restart on Saturday October 24.

The venue fo the game is yet to be announced.

Ireland round off their campaign with a trip to France the fllowing weekend.

In rescheduling these matches, the health and safety of players, associated staff and supporters has been at the forefront of our thinking. We remain in close contact with all relevant authorities across the respective jurisdictions to ensure these matches take place in a safe environment and we will announce further details of health and safety protocols and guidance on spectator attendance in due course.

Six Nations can also confirm that the Women’s Championship will be concluded this autumn on the following weekends:

Weekend of 24th Oct: Round 4

  • Scotland v France
  • Ireland v Italy

Weekend of 31st Oct: Round 5

  • Wales v Scotland
  • Italy v England
  • France v Ireland

Weekend of 5th Dec: Round 3

  • Italy v Scotland

With regards to the U20 Six Nations championship, due to season scheduling constraints, it was decided that the three outstanding matches would not be played and there would be no winner for the 2020 Championship.

In recent weeks, Six Nations has also been progressing contingency plans for an alternative tournament format in place of the Autumn Internationals for 2020, primarily driven by travel restrictions not allowing many international teams to play the scheduled matches.

This tournament will be a unique eight-team competition, involving the Six Nations unions and two other international teams.

They are currently finalising match schedules, operational details including venues as well as commercial arrangements. Further announcements relating to this competition are expected to be made later this month.
