The RFU have released the fixtures for the 2024/25 National League Rugby season and the new campaign will start on Saturday September 7th.

On their return to National One, Rotherham Titans host Rosslyn Park at Clifton Lane while also on the opening weekend, National Two East champions Esher travel to Sedgley Park.

Dings Crusaders begin their first-ever season at Level Three with a trip to Birmingham Moseley, who finished fifth in 2023/24.

National Two North returnees Harrogate open up with a visit to Billingham while Oxford Harlequins, Colchester and Havant now know their first assignments in National Two East. Oxford Harlequins are away to last year's runners-up Barnes, Colchester go to Canterbury and Havant entertain Sevenoaks.

Over in National Two West, newly-promoted Devonport Services hit the road to face Bournville while Macclesfield go to Camborne.

A full fixture list can be accessed HERE and will appear on our website and on the England Rugby website in due course.

As National League Rugby have to organise fixtures for only four leagues, they can be completed earlier than the other divisions (Regional 1 and below). The plan is to release fixtures for these leagues by the 14th June. This will include those for any other sides which your club may have playing in the RFU Leagues. All will be viewable on the Fixtures and Results section of the RFU website.
