Scottish Rugby publishes Return to Rugby timeline

​A timeline outlining the next four phases for the Return to Rugby for the domestic game in Scotland has been published today, Friday 26 March, by Scottish Rugby.

Scottish Rugby’s four phases for clubs and schools are aligned to the Scottish Government’s own phased exit from current Level 4 restrictions, and in line with consultation from Sportscotland.

All dates published in the timeline are subject to Scottish Government restrictions with specific information relating to each milestone to be communicated with further detail.

Until this time all permitted activity must be training only, with no inter-club/school friendly fixtures permitted. Organised rugby training activities can be undertaken, providing all activity is consistent with Scottish Government guidance on health, physical distancing and hygiene in place at that time.

In the likelihood that rugby fixtures will be able to return over the summer months, Scottish Rugby will shortly undertake a consultation with clubs for their views on next season, before confirming the 2021/22 season structure in May.

Scottish Rugby is committing support and resources to help clubs progress through the projected phases of the timeline safely and in line with Scottish Government Guidelines.
