League and cup fixtures for 2022-23 Championship released


Jersey Reds will kick off the 2022/23 RFU Championship with an away game at Ampthill on the second weekend of September, concluding their campaign at the end of April with a home game against the same opponents.

Fixtures for the new season have been announced today, with the Reds’ home opener at Stade Santander International being a home game against Coventry on the weekend of September 17th - this will be the Reds' 200th Championship game at the start of their 11th season at level two.

Newly-promoted Caldy, based on the Wirral peninsula a few miles west of Liverpool, will host their visitors from Jersey at Paton Field on the second weekend of October before making their maiden voyage to the Island in early March.

The Championship Cup will see the Reds in a group with Nottingham, Hartpury and Ealing Trailfinders, with three group games in November and the remaining three in February ahead of semi-finals and the final in May.

All league and cup fixtures - home and away - are currently listed for 'weekend of' dates and could be played on Friday evenings, Saturday or Sunday. Supporters are advised not to make travel plans around particular days/KO times ahead of these details being finalised.

Before the league action starts, the Reds will face a trio of home pre-season games at Stade Santander International. Two of the matches have already been confirmed: London Irish on Saturday August 27th and Bath on Friday September 2nd.
