England's Under-20 team will face Australia, Fiji and Canada in the opening stages of this season's inaugural IRB Junior World Championship in Wales.
All England’s Pool C games will take place at Rodney Parade in Newport before the final stages with the title decided at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea on June 21 next year.
The programme sees England play No.11 seeds Fiji on June 6, then Canada on June 10 and Australia on June 14 to determine qualifying places.
The top two sides in Pool C then face either South Africa or Samoa in the play-off stages in Cardiff or Swansea.
England, who are coached by former internationals Nigel Redman and Mark Mapletoft, are seeded sixth in the tournament based on their showing at the last IRB Under-19 World Championships in Belfast.
They also have a full programme of Six Nations games in February and March with home games against Wales and Ireland at Gloucester on February 1 and March 14.
New Zealand are the number one seeds after beating South Africa 31-6 in the Under-19 final.
