It will kick off with a rematch of the 2023 Grand Final as the Crusaders host the Chiefs on February 23 at FMG Stadium before the Rebels host the Brumbies at AAMI Park.

The Saturday is headlined by traditional rivals Queensland Reds and NSW Waratahs facing off at Suncorp Stadium.

Round two will once again be 'Super Round', with all 12 teams heading to Melbourne from March 1-3.

New Western Force scrumhalf Nic White will get the chance to face his old side Brumbies in Canberra in round three.

In the following, Taniela Tupou and the Rebels will host the Queensland Reds at AAMI Park, with Tupou joined by ex-Reds teammates Lukhan Salakaia-Loto and Filipo Daugunu.

Last season’s grand finalists meet again in Round 6, with the Crusaders’ Good Friday fixture against the Chiefs in Christchurch kicking off a blockbuster Easter Weekend that includes the Reds hosting the Brumbies in Brisbane.

The Fijian Drua will again play their seven home games in Fiji and Moana Pasifika is currently exploring exciting opportunities to host fixtures in Samoa and other destinations across the Pacific.

"Super Rugby Pacific continues to set the bar as the most entertaining professional club competition in the world and it’s exciting to launch the draw for 2024," Super Rugby Pacific Tournament Director Matt Barlow said.

"The 84-match regular season showcases the fastest and most free-flowing rugby on the planet with world class talent on show across the squads.

"As we enter the third year of Super Rugby Pacific it’s exciting to see how far the competition has come, how fans have engaged, how law variations have improved the flow of the game, and how richly the Fijian Drua and Moana Pasifika have enhanced the tournament.

"The announcement of the match schedule and venues for the 2024 edition of the Super Rugby Pacific tournament will allow fans to plan their attendance and get set to follow their favourite teams and players.

"We will once again see matches played in Australia, Fiji and New Zealand, whilst we continue to work with our teams in potentially confirming matches in other countries throughout the Pacific region.

"Super Rugby Pacific 2024 promises to be the most competitive and most engaging competition ever seen and I can’t wait for kick off."
