New Zealand Rugby has confirmed that it will launch its Super Rugby Pacific on February 18th next year.

A new era for the most exciting professional rugby in the world will be heralded when the Fiji Drua and Moana Pasifika join the five New Zealand and five Australian clubs in a 12-team tournament.

While Moana Pasifika has been granted an unconditional license to compete in Super Rugby, the Drua is still in the final stages of discussions with NZR on this the license.

The new format shows a 15-week competition in which a playoff series with eight teams culminates in a final on June 18th.

New Zealand Rugby General Manager Professional Rugby & High Performance, Chris Lendrum says this is an exciting new phase for rugby in the Pacific region.

The two newcomers to Super Rugby Pacific will play against each other twice in the first two seasons, with other examples being i which teams will play twice, will be determined by a betting process based on results from 2021 focusing on local derbies.

Rugby Australia CEO Andy Marinos said this would be a game changer for rugby in the Pacific and the rest of the rugby World will be.

Fiji Rugby Union will announce in the coming days where the Fijian Drua’s home games will be played, while Moana Pasifika will mainly play their home games in New Zealand.
