Exeter Chiefs will begin their 2016/17 Premiership campaign on Sunday, 4 September, against Wasps in a rematch of last season's victorious semi-final.
Rob Baxter's team came within 80 agonising minutes of becoming English champions for the first time but had their hopes dashed by Saracens at the final in May.
And the Chiefs will go head to head with Saracens in the second round of fixtures, at Sandy Park on the the 11 September.
Supporters can look forward to extra West Country derbies following Bristol's promotion, as well as the usual mouth-watering meeting with Bath and Gloucester. Meetings with all three come before the end of October and Exeter finish the regular season at Kingsholm against Gloucester.

Three Exeter Chiefs players have all agreed new deals with the Aviva Premiership club.
Fresh from helping England record a first-ever series win in Australia last month, Jack Nowell, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Henry Slade have signed on to new three-year contracts.
All three players have established themselves within English rugby, but also on the European and international stage.
When you look at all the things it needs for three players like that to sign for a club, it shows that you are ticking a lot of boxes.
First and foremost it shows that we look after them and they enjoy being here, which is vitally important, but it also shows that we can help them not only achieve the ambitions which they have achieved so far, but that they also feel in the future they will experience big things here, not just in the Premiership and in Europe, but also internationally.
