Six Nations 2024 wallchart

By Chris Dinsdale

February 2, 2024 - March 16, 2024 - The Six Nations Championship 2024. In the afterglow of the Rugby World Cup, the Six Nations tournament kicks off as Grand Slam champions Ireland clash with France in the opening match. Barring Italy, each nation sees a new captain take charge -- Grégory Alldritt deputises for France’s Antoine Dupont, who misses the Six Nations to play Rugby 7s at the Paris Olympics.

The Six Nations Championship is played each year between England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. Each team plays every other team over five rounds, a total of 15 matches, with home advantage alternating between seasons.

The tournament began in 1883 between the four “home” nations of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, with France joining in 1910 and Italy in 2000 to give the current six nations.

Under the umbrella of the tournament there are individual competitions such as the Calcutta Cup match (contested between England and Scotland since 1879), the Millennium Trophy (England and Ireland, since 1988), the Centenary Quaich (Ireland and Scotland, since 1989), and the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy (France and Italy, since 1988). The Triple Crown is awarded to a home nation that beats the other three home nations. If a team wins all of its five matches they win a “Grand Slam”.
