SARACENS and London Irish will help launch the 2017-18 Premiership Rugby season after being chosen as the home sides for the eagerly-awaited London Double Header at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 2 September.
Saracens, the double European champions will kick off first at the home of English rugby, followed by newly-promoted London Irish, who recently announced the signing of 10 new players.
The identity of both Saracens and London Irish’s opponents will be revealed at the Premiership Rugby Fixtures Launch at 11am on Friday 7 July.
Tickets will initially go on sale exclusively to London Irish and Saracens’ season ticket holders (see below) before the general sale on Tuesday 27 June, so fans can kick off the new season in style and recreate the incredible atmosphere of the recent Aviva Premiership Rugby Final in May.
