Six Nations 2021 Fixtures Guide. Italy and France will kick off the 2021 Six Nations Championship when they meet on Saturday 6th February. The Calcutta Cup match between England and Scotland then follows at Twickenham. Rounding off the opening weekend's fixtures, Wales face Ireland at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Sunday afternoon.
The 2021 Six Nations Championship (known as the Guinness Six Nations for sponsorship reasons) will be the 22nd Six Nations Championship, the annual rugby union competition contested by the national teams of England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales, and the 127th edition of the competition (including all the tournament's previous versions as the Home Nations Championship and Five Nations Championship).
The Six Nations returns this weekend after a break of just over three months. Last year’s tournament was of course suspended in March, before the final fixtures were finally played at the end of October. England emerged as Six Nations champions, pipping France to the title.
Wales, who won the championship in 2019, had a torrid Six Nations last year, winning just one match and finishing fifth in the standings. The 2021 Six Nations, like the final games in 2020 and last year’s Autumn Nations Cup, will be played behind closed doors, so TV will be the only way fans can enjoy the tournament.
