It’s time to scrum down after lockdown

The Gallagher Premiership is back and you can show it all on BT Sport

Rugby fans have had to endure a long  wait for the return of the Gallagher Premiership – but it’s coming back in style on BT Sport.

The season will resume on Friday August 14th – some five months after a ball was last passed, kicked or touched down.

We resume our coverage with Harlequins hosting Sale Sharks and follow it up with live coverage of every game in the competition while matches remain behind closed doors.

This means you can take your pick between the clashes on our main channels along with extra selections available on the red button.

There’s more than enough to ensure your rugby fans have plenty of reasons to visit.

Check out for full fixture details and social assets to help you promote the action.

In the meantime, here’s a rundown of some of the highlights coming your way in August.
