Rugby’s Six Nations Championship will lead off the dance of the sport events in Rome in 2019:
The Tournament will begin on February 1 in France , with its first match in Rome on February 9: Italia v Wales
This traditional rugby tournament is a yearly event in Europe involving six teams: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
It is the successor of the several competitions played among the most important European teams at the end of the 19 Century.
Italy joined it in 2000 (till then it was named indeed Five Nations), thanks to the great results she gradually achieved since the Nineties.
Italy will play three home matches and two away matches. Below the schedule at Stadio Olimpico in Rome:
– Saturday 9 February : ITALY vs WALES
– Sunday 24 February: ITALY vs IRELAND
– Saturday 16 March: ITALY vs FRANCE
