Calling all rugby or potential rugby fans! The Six Nations Championship is the hallmark of the European rugby season—watch England; Ireland; Scotland; Wales; Italy and France battle it out for the title of the greatest European rugby nation. The 2011 RBS 6 Nations Championship will for the first time in the championship’s history kick off on Friday on the 4th February with Wales v England in Cardiff. The schedule was finalised with a view to showcasing this fantastic fixture and make this great rugby occasion available to as many people as possible. The 2010 championship was again a huge success with a fantastic finale in Paris witnessed by a record French TV audience. The final weekend of the 2011 championship should again provide plenty of excitement with 3 exhilarating fixtures (Scotland v Italy, Ireland v England and France v Wales). In yet another exciting development 2011 will also see the Irish team return to their traditional home in Lansdowne Road at the new Aviva Stadium after four wonderful seasons in their adopted home of Croke Park. David Pickering, Chairman of the Six Nations Council, said: “The RBS 6 Nations Championship remains the envy of the rugby world, a tournament played with pride and passion and drenched in history and tradition”.
