After a five-month break, Worcester Warriors is hoping to resume the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership season with a win as the team prepares for a local derby against Gloucester Rugby at Sixways on Saturday August 15.

As a major shirt sponsor of the team, with its branding featured on both home and away kits, Exol is excited for the season to get underway again and is giving Warriors its full support.

It is also sponsor for full-back and Warriors legend Chris Pennell, reflecting the company’s ongoing passion and commitment to the sport.

There are nine rounds of matches still to be played in the 2019/20 season and fixtures for the first four of those rounds – which will be played in the scheduled sequence before the lockdown – have been confirmed by Premiership Rugby.

After the Gloucester match in Round 14, Warriors will make the short trip to the Ricoh Arena to face Wasps on Friday August 21 before Harlequins visit Sixways in Round 16 on Wednesday August 26.

Warriors will then travel to Sandy Park to play Exeter Chiefs on Sunday August 30, the last of the confirmed fixtures.

Kick-off times and details of televised matches have yet to be confirmed by Premiership Rugby.
