Premiership Rugby extends season postponement

8 April 2020

Premiership Rugby have today announced a further postponement of the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership season as the UK continues to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The news follows an initial five-week suspension of all Gallagher Premiership matches and secondary competitions that was due to end on 20 April 2020. 

At this stage, Premiership Rugby have not confirmed new dates on which the affected matches will be rearranged but stress that the intention still remains to play all games and complete the 2019/20 season as soon as it can be done safely. 


All Bath Rugby fixtures are now affected 

We will continue to keep our supporters informed on Premiership Rugby’s decisions on the continuation of the Gallagher Premiership and secondary competitions.  

All Bath Rugby fixtures will remain off sale until the rearranged 2019/20 season schedule is able to be confirmed.  


Tarquin McDonald, Bath Rugby Chief Executive shared this message to our supporters:

“Our priority continues to be to protect our people, our supporters and our community in these unsettling times. 

“We are doing all we can to protect the future of our Club so that we can get back to playing rugby at the Rec as soon as it is safe to do so. 

“We continue to ask you all to put your health and that of others first, following the advice provided by the Government and the NHS to stay at home and thank you for your kindness and patience during this time of uncertainty.” 



We know that today’s announcement brings further uncertainty for our ticket holders. We will provide further clarity as soon as we are in a position to do so regarding the rearrangement of postponed matches, together with information on the refund process if supporters are unable to attend the rearranged game.  



Thank you again for your patience at this time, we hope you and your families are staying safe and well.
