It is official, the Six Nations 2020 will be completed in October. After the decision of the World Rugby Council to open the international window from 24 October to 6 December next, the organizers of the tournament have made official dates, times and stadiums for the conclusion of this year's edition, which was interrupted last March.
Italy will be the first team to return to the field: they will do so on Saturday 24 October at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, where they will face Ireland in the last game left to play to conclude matchday four. On 31 October, however, the grand final: Wales-Scotland, Italy-England and France-Ireland will be played.
However, some details are still missing: the time of the match between Italy and Ireland has not yet been confirmed, as well as the stadium where Wales-Scotland will be played, given that the Principality Stadium in Cardiff will remain closed until the end of 2020.

The eventuality of playing behind closed doors will be decided in agreement with the national authorities of each participating team and will be announced shortly. In this regard, the FIR has issued a note where: "it informs that details about the tickets purchased for the tender originally scheduled for March 14 will be disseminated as soon as the competent authorities define the possibility of holding the meeting in the presence, even partial, of the crowd."
The women's tournament will also conclude, although the details of the matches are still vague and will need to be made more precise. In any case, Andrea Di Giandomenico's Italy will play his three remaining matches.
Two will be played on the weekends of 24 and 31 October, and the last on 5 December. The Six Nations under 20 has been definitively canceled.
