16/17 Aviva Premiership Rugby Fixtures announced
Aviva Premiership champions Saracens will kick-off their title defence against Worcester Warriors at Twickenham Stadium in the 2016 London Double Header, after Premiership Rugby announced the fixtures for the upcoming 2016/17 season.
In an action packed September, Saracens will travel to Sandy Park in round two to face Exeter Chiefs in a repeat of the 2015 Premiership final, before hosting Northampton Saints at Allianz Park a week later and travelling to The Stoop to face London rivals, Harlequins.
Premiership Rugby are also delighted to confirm that the Anglo-Welsh Cup will return for the 2016-17 season, kicking off on the weekend of 4-6 November. The pools and fixtures for the new Anglo-Welsh Cup will be announced later in July.
Saracens will also once again play Harlequins at Wembley Stadium, on Saturday April 8th.
“We’re very much looking forward to kicking off the 2016-17 campaign back at Twickenham Stadium against Worcester Warriors,” said Saracens Director of Rugby, Mark McCall.
“The London Double Header is always a great way to start the new season with four clubs battling it out in a showpiece occasion in front of a big crowd.
“Looking around Aviva Premiership Rugby all clubs have strengthened going into the new campaign with quality players joining from across the globe – again proving that this competition is one of the best in the world.”
