FloRugby To Show Rugby Europe Championship In Several Markets

Today, Rugby Europe, the governing body responsible for the promotion, development, administration, and management of international competitions for the 48-member unions across Europe, and FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, announced a partnership to provide live and on-demand coverage of the 2019 Rugby Europe Championship on FloRugby.com

With this agreement, Rugby Europe is expanding the coverage of the second tier of European Nations Cup beyond Europe continent. For the next edition starting on February 9, FloRugby will broadcast the fifteen games of the competition live in North America, Latin America, Middle East and North Africa. 

All games will air in domestic markets through agreements with Free-to-air and Sports TV (1TV Georgia, Telekom Romania, RTVE Spain, Pro7 Germany, RTBF.be Belgium and MatchTV Russia). The last edition gathered over 3 million viewers on TV and rugbyeurope.tv, the OTT platform of Rugby Europe. 

This opportunity represents a new audience to promote European rugby during the Year of the Rugby World Cup, in which Georgia and Russia will compete. 

“We are very excited about this partnership with FloSports,” CEO of Rugby Europe, Florent Marty said. “This increases the visibility and understanding of European Nations competitions, and provides more coverage of the tournament. Before Rugby World Cup, it is an exciting time for the sport, and we need to capitalise on these opportunities both on and off the field for all our member unions.”

"Partnering with Rugby Europe to bring the Rugby Europe Championship to FloRugby subscribers in North America, MENA, and LATAM is an exciting addition,” FloSports Director, Global Rights Acquisition Adam Armstrong said. “The Rugby Europe Championship has become an exciting and intriguing competition over the past few years and with FloRugby's support we expect it to continue to grow into one of the most anticipated events of the international rugby season."
