Commenting on the 2024 Guinness Six Nations fixtures, Ben Morel, CEO of Six Nations Rugby, said: “A constant of the Guinness Six Nations is the drama, unpredictable storylines, and rivalries playing out over five unmissable rounds of fixtures. This is what drives the sheer excitement fans have for this great Championship.

Thanks to our comprehensive broadcast partnerships and coverage, we can bring every moment of the Championship to fans all over the world, and it is exciting to help fans look forward to what is in store for 2024.”
