Premiership rugby fixtures 2021/22: Televised matches for 2022 confirmed
The fixtures for the 2021/22 Gallagher Premiership season have been confirmed, with BT Sport to show more than 20 games from the first five months of 2022
After a finish to the 2020/21 season that will go down in folklore, the Gallagher Premiership is back on BT Sport screens for the 2021/22 season.
The 2021/22 campaign has a lot to live up to after Harlequins emerged victorious from one of the most entertaining Premiership seasons in recent memory.
This season is already shaping up to be another classic with the return of five-time winners Saracens following their relegation last year, while beaten finalists Exeter Chiefs will be out to regain the crown they gave up to Quins.
The 2021/22 campaign sees 13 teams battling it out for a place at Twickenham after relegation was scrapped last season.
The expanded competition means that for the first time since the Premiership started in 1997 each club will have two bye weeks in the season.
