Six Nations Rugby Championship in Rome

Six Nations Rugby Championships in Rome

If you’ve ever wanted the chance to watch a modern-day gladiator match, it’s here. The 19th annual RBS 6 Nations Rugby Championship commences this February, and three of the matches will be hosted in our very own Roma. Six elite rugby nations–Italy, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and France–will go head-to-head in this hundred year old tradition, and just like the Ancient Romans, these rugby warriors will be fighting to the death, or rather to the trophy.

Italy will host two squads at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico: England on 4 February, and Scotland on 17 March.
The Italian national rugby union team (also known as gli azzurri) will be battling teams from England and Scotland on their home ground. Show your support by pouring into the stands of Stadio Olimpico, or by pouring yourself a beer while you take in the games live in the comfort of your nearest viewing bar.

Watch the players roar, claw, and run to victory. Be prepared for fans to swarm into pubs after the games for the legendary “third half,” known to be a time of copious drinking and celebration of rugby, no matter which team won or lost.

Here is a full schedule of the matches and a link to purchase tickets for them, should you be so brave as to come within 100 feet of modern-day gladiators.
