PREMIERSHIP RUGBY have today confirmed three fixtures in Round 19 of Gallagher Premiership Rugby as we prepare for the safe return of supporters.
Of those three matches, Gloucester Rugby's tie with Bristol Bears at Ashton Gate has been confirmed for Monday 17 May at 7.45pm, in the hope of ensuring a limited number of supporters may be able to attend the match.
The Government has indicated – as part of their Spring Roadmap - that supporters may be allowed to attend sporting fixtures from 17 May. By moving matches into midweek we are ready to welcome fans back if it is decided that it is safe to do so,” said Phil Winstanley, the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.
“We’d like to thank BT Sport and the clubs involved for their co-operation in making these changes which we hope will lead to thousands of our supporters seeing Premiership Rugby live in May.
“BT Sport have also confirmed they will show all matches live.”
