The Autumn Rugby Internationals will be returning to the UK, Wales, Scotland and Ireland this November and it’s set to be an exciting battle where some of the best European teams take on some of the best southern hemisphere teams. Curiously, the annual games are actually referred to differently depending on which side of the world you happen to be on; in the UK they’re referred to as either the Autumn Series or Autumn Internationals where as in South Africa or Australia for example they would be known as End-of-Year Rugby International’s.

Owing to the Rugby World Cup in 2015 the Autumn Internationals have not been seen in their entirety since 2014. However this year we can expect to see some serious rugby when the likes of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales take on teams such as: World Cup Champions; The All Blacks (New Zealand),

The Wallabies (Australia) and the Springboks (South Africa). The Autumns Series is played in the finest stadiums in Europe and they are a chance for global teams both big and small to stage their talent under the spotlight and scrutiny of the international rugby world. There’s an atmosphere of friendship, camaraderie and pomp which makes it a truly unique setting for formal client hospitality. The Autumn Internationals are naturally popular and often sell out long before the summer is out.

Sports Hospitality Partnership is now offering luxury hospitality packages for all fixtures in the UK and Ireland.

England Autumn Series – Twickenham Stadium

The climate at Twickenham stadium is likely to be many things not least tense when England’s new coach Eddie Jones takes on his home team Australia in their final match of the series. This will come after a tough but exciting games against South Africa, Fiji, and Argentina. England full-back Mike Brown said: “It’s great to be able to take on four such quality teams on back-to-back weekends. It allows us to test ourselves against some high calibre opposition.”

Wales QBE Series – Millennium Stadium, Cardiff

The Principality Stadium formally known as the Millennium Stadium will be home to four autumn internationals played by Wales in 2016. The young Welsh team face a gripping series of games starting with Australia. These two teams will compete for the James Bevan Trophy, which was created in 2007 to celebrate 100 years of rugby between Wales and Australia.

Ireland QBE Series – Aviva Stadium, Dublin

Ireland certainly have a group of exciting games coming up; they’ll be challenging the reigning World champions New Zealand and Rugby World Cup finalists Australia and a top tier 2 nation as well. Irish Rugby Union CEO Philip Browne recent commented on the impending series saying “We again have a very attractive series to look forward to in 2016. New Zealand return to Ireland for the first time since that incredible game in 2013 and Australia have shown that they are one of the most exciting and effective teams in world rugby after winning the Rugby Championship and finishing runner-up at this year’s Rugby World Cup.”

Scotland QBE Series – Murrayfield, Edinburgh

Scotland will get the chance to avenge their last-minute defeat from Australia in the Rugby World Cup quarter-final last year. Their first autumn international game will see them face Australia for the first time since they were defeated by just one point at Twickenham last year.
