About Premiership Rugby
While English domestic league Rugby has been around since the 1970’s, the Premiership format began in 1987 and developed into the competition we known today. It was only in the 1996/97 season that the league turned professional, with clubs able to attract wealthy benefactors.
Today the Premiership consists of 12 teams who each play their 11 opponents once at home, and once away. The regular season kicks off in September and concludes in May the following year. For each of the 22 matches played, teams earn points for a win or a draw. At the end of the season, the top 4 teams play in the semi-finals and on to the final.
At the end of the 2018/2019 regular season Exeter Chiefs topped the Premiership log with 86 points. Saracens placed second, with Gloucester in third, and Northampton Saints in fourth. The four teams will play in the semi-finals on the 25th of May to determine who goes through to the final. In the first match of the day, Saracens will take on Gloucester at Allianz Park. Later in the day, Exeter Chiefs will take on Northampton Saints at Sandy Park in Exeter.
