The IRFU is pleased to confirm the fixtures for the 2024 Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial Championship, which will take place this August as part of a new season plan designed to provide leading players with consistent access to high-level game time.

The four-round series gets underway on Saturday, August 10, in Cork as Munster go head-to-head with Ulster at Virgin Media Park (Kick-off 2.30pm) before defending champions Leinster get their 2024 campaign underway against Connacht at home in Energia Park (Kick-off 4.45pm).

Round 2 of the Championship sees Ulster host Connacht at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday, August, 17 (Kick-off 2.30pm), while Munster welcome Leinster to Virgin Media Park in Cork (Kick-off 4.45pm).

A week later, on Saturday 24 August, Connacht face Munster in Dexcom Stadium Galway (Kick-off 2.30pm) and Ulster host Leinster in the Round 3 clash at Kingspan Stadium (Kick-off 4.45pm).

The finals day will take place on Saturday 31 August in Kingspan Stadium with the 3rd/4th place playoff kicking off at 2.30pm, followed by the 2024 Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial final which will kick off at 4.45pm

TG4 will once again broadcast the tournament with Ulster matches to be screened by BBC NI.

The Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial Championship will lead into the start of the Women’s Energia All-Ireland League season which will kick off on the weekend of 28 September and serve as an important window of preparation for national players ahead of Ireland’s WXV1 campaign in Canada in September.

IRFU Head of Women’s Development, Amanda Greensmith, commented: “Following on from the announcement of the Women’s Energia All-Ireland League fixtures for the upcoming 2024/25 season, we’re delighted to now confirm the schedule for this year’s Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial Championship.

“The quality, competitiveness and excitement has been building year-on-year and we’re looking forward to four weekends of Women’s Interprovincial rugby, marking the start of a busy and important season ahead both domestically and internationally.

“The support of Vodafone as title sponsor and of TG4 and BBC NI in broadcasting the Championship has been a real positive in recent years as the competition, teams and players are given the platform to showcase themselves to a wider audience, growing the sport and building exciting momentum behind the Women’s game.”
