The schedule for the 2022 season of Super Rugby Pacific has been revealed with the newcomers Moana Pasifika will be hosting Brumbies at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland on 18th February in the opening fixture.

Apart from Moana Pasifika, the 12-team tournament also features Fijian Drua for the first time along with five Super Rugby sides apiece from New Zealand and Australia.

Fijian Drua will play their first match in an away fixture against the Blues at Eden Park on 19th February.

The tournament will be spread across 18 weeks with each team playing 14 regular season matches comprising one match against each of the other teams plus an additional match against three of the other team.

Apart from that, this year's competition will also have themed rounds with the second round named Super Round Melbourne which will see all 12 teams gather at AAMI Park in Melbourne played from 25th to 27th February.

The other themed rounds include Women in Rugby Round in Round 3, Culture Round in Round 6, ANZAC Round in Round 10, and a Heritage Round in Round 12, where each team will acknowledge their unique past, present and future.

"It's fantastic to be able to confirm our draw for the 2022 competition, and I'd like to thank our teams, broadcasters, New Zealand Rugby and SANZAAR for their co-operation and collaboration in getting to this point,” RA CEO Andy Marinos said in a statement.

"Super Rugby Pacific is fresh and exciting as we look to provide fans a new game-day experience every time they go to a match, all at family friendly kick-off times.

"It will be a Rugby extravaganza at our first-ever Super Round in Round Two in Melbourne, with all six games at AAMI Park over one weekend.

“We will also host an ANZAC, Heritage, Cultural and Women in Rugby Round, as we acknowledge, recognise and celebrate the communities who make our game so great, and I'm excited to see this play out during match days.

"The draw also features a focus on rivalry rounds which excites us, so I'd encourage everyone to sign-up for a club membership, tune into Stan Sport and get onboard as we look to write the next chapter in Super Rugby's history.”
