Scotland will kick off the 2025 Six Nations with a home tie against Italy before finishing it with a trip to France after the fixtures were released this afternoon.

Gregor Townsend’s men are in Rome this weekend to face the Italians before finishing their tournament against Ireland next week and next year will see the Azzuri visit Scottish Gas Murrayfield for the opening match on February 1.

The tournament will begin with France hosting Wales on Friday, March 31 and then Scotland will get their championship started against Italy less than 24 hours later. The other game that day will see Ireland host England to round off the first weekend of the Six Nations.

A second home game in a row comes a week later when Townsend’s side face Ireland at Murrayfield. That game will take place on Sunday, February 9 with a 3pm kick-off with Andy Farrell’s side making the trip across the Irish Sea.

The first away match of the Championship will see Scotland make the trip to London to face England at Twickenham on Saturday February 22 with fallow weeks either side of this one. They’ll look to make history on that occasion by lifting the Calcutta Cup for the fifth time in a row.

It would be the first time Scotland have managed that after getting a record equaling fourth this year with a 30-21 victory.

The Championship never fails to deliver unpredictable excitement, bringing fans together for this annual feast of rugby.

“The next instalment of fixtures is always keenly anticipated by fans, and alongside comprehensive broadcast plans, Six Nations fans can start looking forward to what is in store next year.”
