The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has today announced the fixtures for the upcoming 2021/22 Allianz Premier 15s season.
Gloucester-Hartpury Women will kick start their 18 round campaign against DMP Durham Sharks on the weekend of September 4.
The season culminates with play-offs (21 May 2022) and a title final (4 June 2022, venue TBC).
With no promotion or relegation, there are no changes to the 10 teams within England’s top flight of women’s domestic rugby, operating in a league format with home and away fixtures.
The new season also sees the introduction of The Allianz Cup which has been created to give an opportunity to wider squad players to compete during international windows.
RFU Director of Performance Rugby, Conor O’Shea said: “The standard of the Allianz Premier 15s is growing year-on-year.
“Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, all of our clubs did an incredible job on and off the field to ensure we continued momentum and completed what was a very competitive campaign last season culminating in a memorable final at Kingsholm - their hard work, effort and dedication is appreciated.
“We’re really looking forward to the forthcoming season."
