Premiership Rugby have now set a date they want the league to resume on

Premiership Rugby have confirmed that it is targeting Saturday 15 August for the resumption of the Gallager Premiership. The restart date was agreed following the announcement this week that Premiership clubs can move to Stage 1: Elite Sport Return to Training.

The issue was discussed at a board meeting on Thursday night.

“Nothing will happen until it is safe to do so but we will do everything we can to resume the 2019-20 Gallagher Premiership Rugby campaign on Saturday 15 August,” said Darren Childs, Chief Executive of Premiership Rugby.

“We won’t take risks with people’s health, and rugby has unique challenges due to levels of proximity and impact, but with a number of clubs moving to Stage 1, it is important for us to give players, coaches and clubs clarity on when they can look to return.

“Bearing that in mind, we look forward to the restart of the season.”

The structure of the 2019-20 season will follow in due course.
