Ireland will begin their 2024 Six Nations campaign away to France on Friday the 2nd of February.
The fixture details for next year’s running of the Guinness Six Nations were announced on Tuesday morning. Ireland are currently leading the 2023 standings with three wins from three with a break this weekend before taking on Scotland in a massive game at Murrayfield.
Should Andy Farrell still be in charge of the side in the wake of this year’s Rugby World Cup, he’ll see his charges begin 2024 on the road to Paris in February. The venue for the game has yet to be confirmed, as the Stade de France won’t be in use due to preparation for the Olympics. That opening game is getting the Friday night treatment with an 8pm kick-off.
Italy and Wales will both visit the Aviva Stadium in February, while Ireland go to Twickenham to face England on March 9th. The Irish campaign concludes with a home match against Scotland on Saturday, March 16th.
Round one of the 2024 Guinness Six Nations will hopefully see a repeat of a staggering 2023 clash between France and Ireland, to kick off the latest edition of the Championship, before moving to round two, which is dominated by one of rugby’s biggest rivalries, England versus Wales, at Twickenham.
The oldest international rugby match in the sport, Scotland versus England, will be played out in Edinburgh in round three, before Scotland travel to Rome in round four to take on the Azzurri.
It was Italy who wrote their name into the Six Nations history books in 2022, on the final day of the Championship, claiming a dramatic victory over Wales in Cardiff. The stage is set again, in a fixture that is catapulting itself into the hearts and minds of rugby fans. France then closes out the 2024 Championship with Le Crunch, hosting England.
