The Six Nations 2024 fixtures were announced earlier this year. Find out the schedule for each team in the competition, and how they will fare in their attempts to be crowned champions.
The Six Nations 2024 fixtures were announced shortly after the beginning of the 2023 Six Nations. With the popularity of the competition and its importance on the rugby calendar each year, it should come as no surprise that next year's schedule was confirmed so early.
2023 saw a strong edition of the greatest annual international rugby Championship, and with a packed rest of the year which will see the big one in the World Cup taking place in France, fans have a lot to look forward to over the next 12 months.
With that being said, here we are going to look at the confirmed Six Nations 2024 fixtures, including the start and end dates of the competition, the dates for each round, who will be playing who in each round, and how each team may fare.

How it looks for each team
Now we know the dates of the competition, let's take a look at the individual teams and how they’ll fare next year.
Ireland 2024 Six Nations Fixtures
Ireland will head into the 2024 Six Nations championship as the reigning champions. They dominated in 2023, sweeping the competition to take the Grand Slam win.
The current number-one-ranked team in the world is looking strong in 2023 and are favourites to win the World Cup this summer. Their form this year will surely follow them into 2024.
Ireland will be the team to beat next year, but that is a lot easier said than done. They are playing at their very best at the moment and the betting odds will be heavily in their favour to win once again.
England 2024 Six Nations Fixtures
England’s 2023 Six Nations campaign left some to be desired, finishing fourth with two wins and three losses.
That isn’t to say they won’t be a threat to next year's competition, though. They will be looking to improve some throughout 2023 and will see the 2024 Six Nations as the best place to show up.
One of the matchups they will have circled is their fifth-round tie against France, who beat them heavily 10-53 at Twickenham.
England may not be at full strength this year, but 2024 is a different year. They will be looking to improve throughout the year, and 2024 Six Nations will be the first chance they get to show the progress they have made as a squad.
Scotland 2024 Six Nations Fixtures
Scotland had a respectable 2023 Six Nations campaign, finishing with three wins and two losses. The rest of 2023 could see them be a surprise side in the World Cup.
The Scots are ranked fifth in the world, just ahead of England. Scotland are something of the best-of-the-rest side. Up against the top four sides in the world of Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and France, Scotland sometimes look a bit down. But against anyone below them in the rankings, they look just as dominant as those top four.
As strong as they have looked in previous competitions, Scotland are yet to win the Six Nations in its current format since 2000. Could 2024 be their year?
Wales 2024 Six Nations Fixtures
Wales are the most successful side in Six Nations history, having won the competition 40 times in total, with 28 outright wins and 12 shared wins.
2023, though, saw them pick up just one win. In a year with more than just rugby plaguing the team, 2024 could be their chance to show they are back to their best.
For Wales, they often go through phases of mediocrity before returning to the top. Is 2024 too soon to think they could turn things around and return to being a dominant force? Or could it be the start of their new golden generation?
France 2024 Six Nations Fixtures
France finished as runners-up in the 2023 Six Nations, losing just one game, which was to the eventual Grand Slam winners Ireland.
They last won the Six Nations in 2022, that time taking the Grand Slam victory themselves. Their side has remained largely the same, which is to say still very dominant.
Ranked second in the world, France are given very good odds in this years World Cup, and that will surely carry over into 2024. It could be another battle between themselves and Ireland in next year's Six Nation championship.
Italy 2024 Six Nations Fixtures
Italy are still yet to find success in the Six Nations since joining in 2000 and thus expanding the championship to six teams (hence the name).
Unfortunately for the Italians, they often find themselves as the recipient of the Wooden Spoon, which is awarded to the team who finishes last in the standings each year.
Their 2023 campaign saw them finish last once again for their eighth consecutive Wooden Spoon, as they failed to take a single win and picked up just one point.
As mentioned earlier, 2024 is a different year. While it may be a bit too much to say they could be in contention for the win, Italy will surely be looking to at least not take home another Wooden Spoon.
