BT Sport reveals the first live Premiership games of the 2018/19 season

The fixture list for the entire 2018/19 campaign has been released today – you can see it in full here – and BT Sport will be raising the curtain with an epic quadruple header.

Promoted Bristol Bears will get the ball rolling with a home game against local rivals Bath on Friday, August 31st (kick-off 7.45pm).

“To open the season against Bath – and to come up against Todd [Blackadder], a man I know and respect a huge amount – is really exciting,” said Bristol head coach Pat Lam.

“It’s a major boost for our supporters, too. We have no doubt they will fill Ashton Gate and create an incredible atmosphere.”

Gloucester will then take on Northampton on Saturday, September 1st (kick-off 2pm), followed by last year’s beaten finalists Exeter Chiefs tackling Leicester Tigers (kick-off 4.30pm).

We’ll be rounding off the opening weekend with a trip to Kingston Park to see if champions Saracens can make the perfect start to the defence of their title against Newcastle Falcons (kick-off 3pm).
