LIST: Jersey Reds' Championship fixtures released

Friday 30 June 2023

Jersey Reds will start their Championship title defence with a home game against Coventry on the weekend of 21 October, before an away trip to London Scottish a week later.

Matches against the famous old East Midlands' club bookend the season. The return fixture is due to be played on the last weekend of the campaign on 25 May.

Home fans will be hoping for a pre-Christmas treat when last season's title rivals Ealing Trailfinders come to Jersey on the weekend of 23 December, with the return match in west London scheduled for 13 April. Meanwhile, Reds will host newly-promoted Cambridge on the weekend of 20 January.

The islanders' final home game of the season sees the visit of Nottingham on the weekend of 11 May.

The 2023/24 schedule also includes a two-legged promotion play-off between the winner of the Championship (subject to meeting minimum standards criteria) and the side finishing bottom of the Premiership.

The season begins much later than usual because Championship sides will be competing in the Premiership Cup for the first time next season.

All teams will play five pool games in the cup on consecutive weekends from 9 September to 7 October, with fixtures to be released shortly, while the semi-finals and final will be played on the weekends of 17 February and 16 March respectively.
