Sarries will be the first visitors to Sale Sharks' new home at the Salford City stadium in the second weekend of the season.
One of the highlights of the calendar comes on September 15 when Saracens will play Leicester Tigers at Wembley Stadium.
Sarries are moving to Copthall during next season and if all goes to plan their first match at the Mill Hill venue will be on the weekend of February 16 when they face Exeter Chiefs.
The Men in Black will visit Bath before hosting Northampton Saints and Sale over Christmas and the New Year.
