Restart Fixtures and Kick-off Times Confirmed for the Guinness PRO14
Fixtures and kick-off times for the return of the Guinness PRO14 from August 21 can now be confirmed after consultation with clubs and broadcasters. An abbreviated schedule will see the 2019/20 Guinness PRO14 regular season run to 15 rounds followed by Semi-finals and a Final across four consecutive weeks.
The Ospreys will take on the Dragons at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday August 23rd, K.O 2:15pm before travelling to Rodney Parade the following weekend to face Cardiff Blues on Sunday August 30th, K.O 5pm.
Tournament Director Comment David Jordan, Tournament Director of the Guinness PRO14, said: “So far we have been encouraged by the developments that have allowed all of our teams to return to training. Thanks to the great efforts of our clubs and unions, the willingness of governments and the support of our broadcasters we now have a fixture list to look forward to. “Everyone who makes our games possible has had to adapt to a new way of working under the restrictions of the pandemic and the response of all our key stakeholders has been very impressive. With these fixtures now confirmed we are all geared to safe delivery of these games and to the welcome return of rugby after such a long period without the sport.”
Guinness PRO14 Restart Fixtures – Round 14 & 15
• All games live on Premier Sports, eir Sport & DAZN.
• All kick-off times listed at UK/IRE unless stated
At this point, no dates have been fixed for the Guinness PRO14 derby games between the Toyota Cheetahs and the Isuzu Southern Kings. Due to the current conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa, both teams have only been allowed to return to non-contact training this week. PRO14 Rugby remains in constant dialogue with SA Rugby and the clubs and aim to identify appropriate dates for the two derbies when possible.
