Fixture List 2023/2024 Season – Championship

RFU Championship League Fixtures for 202324 Announced

The league competition will be played over 22 rounds, beginning over the weekend of 20-22 October, with the final round scheduled for the weekend of 24-26 May next year.  A two-leg play-off for promotion to the Premiership will take place on the weekends of 31 May-2 June and 7-9 June between the top-placed team in the Championship (provided it meets the minimum standards criteria) and the last-placed team in the Premiership.

The league will consist of 12 teams in the upcoming season after Cambridge RUFC secured promotion to the Championship for topping National 1.

2022-23 season league winners Jersey Reds kick off their first match at home to Coventry, and newcomers Cambridge take on Ampthill away in their first-round game.  Ealing Trailfinders, who finished second in the league last season, play Bedford at Goldington Road, while elsewhere in the competition, Doncaster Knights face Hartpury at home, Caldy plays Nottingham at Paton Field and London Scottish travel to the South-West to face Cornish Pirates.

The pool stages of the Premiership Cup, in which Championship sides will play this season, will kick off the season starting on the weekend of 8-10 September, with the semi-finals held between 16-18 February and the final over the weekend of 15-17 March.  The fixture details for the Cup will be announced soon.  

RFU director of performance rugby Conor O’Shea added: The 2022-23 season finale went down the wire with only two points ultimately separating the top two teams in the table, showcasing the drama of the Championship, and we can expect more of the same in the upcoming season.  

We’re really pleased to welcome Cambridge, who had a fantastic season in National 1, and will be a great addition to the Championship.”

Championship Committee chairman, Simon Halliday, said: “This is a hugely important year for all Championship clubs, and I wish each of them the very best for the coming season.

“I would particularly like to welcome Cambridge, who achieved a wonderful promotion, and I know that they will add greatly to the league as did Caldy last year.

“As the incoming chairman, I look forward to helping build on the work already done as the English game looks towards the future and a sustainable recovery.”
