Investec Super Rugby Aotearoa is back.
This weekend New Zealand will be the first professional rugby competition in the world to have fans return to watch a match following Covid-19.
New Zealand Rugby has confirmed a smaller competition, just with New Zealand teams.
NZ Rugby also announced there will be no limit on crowd numbers when the Highlanders play the Chiefs at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin on Saturday 13 June.
The Blues host the Hurricanes at Eden Park the following day, Sunday 14 June.
The Crusaders have a bye in the first round.
NZR Head of Professional Rugby Chris Lendrum said the move to Level 1 and the return of crowds meant kick-off times would now change for the competition – now 7.05pm for Saturday games and 3.35pm for Sunday games.
