Premiership reshuffle of Round 19 to allow for crowds

The Premiership confirmed today that fixtures for Round 19 will be shifted so as to allow for the possibility of fans attending the games.

So far, games scheduled for Kingston Park and Ashton Gate will be moved to Monday 17 May, by which time the government may have sanctioned crowd attendance.

“The Government has indicated – as part of their Spring Roadmap - that supporters may be allowed to attend sporting fixtures from 17 May,” said Phil Winstanley, the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.

"By moving matches into midweek we are ready to welcome fans back if it is decided that it is safe to do so

“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.”
