Gallagher Premiership Rugby

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.

Elsewhere, can a resurgent Leicester Tigers challenge at English rugby's top table again and can Bristol Bears put their semi-final heartbreak behind them to make another tilt at a maiden title?

2021/22 will see 13 teams battle it out for a place at Twickenham after relegation was scrapped last season.

The first round of the season is slated for September 17, with a June 18 final at Rugby HQ in 2022.

Heineken Champions Cup

All eyes will be on Toulouse this season as they look to go back-to-back in Europe for the first time in their illustrious history. 

The Top 14 giants won an all-French affair against La Rochelle at Twickenham to win a record-breaking fifth European Cup to make them the most successful club in the competition's history.

Can Ronan O'Gara's La Rochelle go one better after falling short last season and how will Exeter Chiefs bounce back after losing both Premiership and Champions Cup crowns in the same year?

Next season will see 24 teams compete across 71 games for the right to be crowned kings of Europe in a revised format for 2021/22.

The clubs will be divided into two pools of 12 – Pool A and Pool B – by means of a draw and the tournament will be played over nine weekends with four rounds of matches in the pool stage starting in December.

The eight highest-ranked clubs from each pool will qualify for the knockout stage which will consist of a new two-legged round of 16 tie, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final in Marseille on 28 May 2022.
