The 2020 Mitre 10 Cup has been confirmed to kick off on September 11, 2020.
The competition was initially scheduled to start on August 6, but was forced backwards due to the impacts on COVID-19 and the structured Super Rugby Aotearoa.
New Zealand Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson said: “With the support of the Provincial Unions, we have been able to schedule a full 14 team Mitre 10 Cup Premiership and Championship competition with kick off on 11 September".
An amended Mitre 10 Cup draw will be released in due course.
NZR is continuing to look at options for this year’s Farah Palmer Cup and for the Black Ferns matches as the country builds up to Rugby World Cup 2021.
