2011 ABSA Currie Cup Premier Division Match Fixtures

The 2011 ABSA Currie Cup rugby tournament kicks off this weekend. The tournament is steeped in history and tradition and dates back to 1889. The Currie Cup tournament is one of the oldest rugby competitions in the world.

The tournament is regarded as the cornerstone of South Africa’s rugby heritage and the coveted gold trophy remains the most prestigious prize in South African domestic rugby.

The current tournament format sees the competition split into 2 divisions. 8 teams are in the Premier Division, and contest for the Currie Cup trophy. The other 6 teams are in the Currie Cup First Division and play for the chance to be promoted to the Premier Division. The format has changed many times over the years, but this format is due to remain in place for now.

The Sharks were the 2010 ABSA Currie Cup Winners and will be looking to defend their title this year.

This is a list of fixtures for the 2011 ABSA Currie Cup season in the Premier Division:
