England v Barbarians Fixture Update

England will play its rescheduled match against the Barbarians in the Quilter Cup on Sunday 25 October, KO 14:00 GMT, live on Sky Sports Arena. 



The game takes place the weekend before Eddie Jones’ squad travels to Italy to play their rearranged final game in the Six Nations 2020.




 




RFU CEO Bill Sweeney said: “We continue to work closely with government and the local authority on the return of sports fans to the stadium. The numbers of fans able to attend, given social distancing requirements, will be significantly lower than normal and subject to final agreement from government.  Local resident and spectator safety is our top priority and numerous measures are being implemented for the events that either adhere to or exceed the guidance provided by the government and the Sports Ground Safety Authority. A test event will be held to put into practice our operational plans and demonstrate that Twickenham Stadium is well prepared.”



England head coach Eddie Jones said: “This game will be an important start to the autumn for us. We are excited to represent England. We will train and prepare well and are looking forward to being back at Twickenham Stadium.”


 
Barbarian F.C. President John Spencer said: “We are working closely with the RFU to ensure England v Barbarians will be an exciting match in a safe environment.




"The safety of players, staff and supporters is paramount.  

The RFU are working hard to put the necessary protocols in place and we look forward to returning to Twickenham.”
