Castle Park and StoneX Stadium have been chosen as the venues for the home games of England in the upcoming U20 Six Nations competition that kicks-off in February.

England will kick-start their campaign with a clash against Scotland on 4th February before heading to Stadio Comunale di Monigo for their encounter against Italy on 11th February.

Their first home match will be against Wales with Castle Park in Doncaster hosting it following which they will play Ireland at Stonex Stadium in London. Their campaign will conclude with a game against France at Stade Aime Giral in Perpignan.

“We’re pleased to be able to have our home games in two fantastic locations and know we’ll get incredible support from the venues and their regular rugby fans," said England Under 20 head coach Alan Dickens.

“Castle Park is an excellent facility and has hosted England Women with great success and no doubt they’ll do the same with the U20s. StoneX is another great rugby stadium with a passionate and vocal crowd and we look forward to playing in front of fans there.

“We’re really pleased the Championship is back to its usual playing window in February and March, in line with the men’s games.

“Many of the lads missed opportunities at U18 level, due to the pandemic, so for some of them this will be their first international experience. I’m sure they’ll enjoy every moment.”
