It remains to be seen if there will be a title sponsor, per se, or whether each country will have their own sponsor for home games, a la Ireland’s Guinness Series in ‘normal’ Novembers. It also remains to be seen whether spectators will be admitted to games, even in much reduced numbers.
Ireland, who have been drawn in a group with Wales, England and Georgia, will kick-off the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup against Wales at the Aviva Stadium at 7pm on Friday, November 13th. The following Saturday, November 21st, they will face England at Twickenham (3pm), where they lost in the Six Nations in their last outing by 24-12 in February before the coronavirus pandemic suspended the sporting world.
Ireland will return to the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, November 29th, with a game against Georgia and then, depending on their final ranking, will host the team which finishes in the same position from the group containing France, Scotland Italy and Fiji on Saturday, December 5th.
