SCOTLAND will kick off their 2022 Women’s Six Nations campaign with a home game against England on 26th March. That match will take place at Edinburgh’s DAM Health Stadium, but the team will revert to their customary home, Scotstoun, for their game against France the following month. Their other three fixtures are all away from home.

As with 2021, the women’s Championship will occupy its own window, separate from the men’s senior and under-2os schedule. All 15 games will be shown on the BBC in this country, with some matches being broadcast on a terrestrial channel and others being shown on the iplayer. RTE, Virgin Media and Sky Italia will show games in Ireland and Italy, while a French broadcasting agreement has yet to be announced.

“Increased visibility is key for the growth of the women’s game,” said Six Nations chief executive Ben Morel. “We are delighted to have enhanced broadcast partnerships in place along with a continuation of the dedicated window from which we saw such success last year. These two key developments along with continued investment in many other areas including performance, commercial and marketing will enhance the Women’s Six Nations for fans and players alike.”
