Televised League Fixtures Confirmed For New Year

Televised League Fixtures Confirmed For New Year

John Feehan, Rabodirect PRO12 Chief Executive, has confirmed the live television fixtures for round 13 (January 6-7) through to the round 19 (March 30-31).

“We are very pleased that rugby fans can continue to see top quality rugby on free-to-air terrestrial TV in both their native language and in English in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.’ said John Feehan.

“I am also delighted to be able to advise that we have recently secured a TV deal in Italy with RAI and they will be covering live all matches in Italy, some of which will also be shown live in other territories.

“There are some great games to look forward to in the New Year: big local derbies such as Cardiff Blues v Scarlets will be live on S4C on March 24 and a week later, Munster v Leinster will be shown live on RTÉ.

“In round 22, where all matches are required to be played simultaneously, the kick-off arrangements for these matches are that they will be played on Saturday May 5 at 6.30pm (7.30pm in Italy).

“It should lead to a fitting finale for what is so far proving to be a very successful first season for the RaboDirect PRO12.”

Commenting on the support for the first eight rounds, Feehan added: “I am delighted to announce that the TV audiences for the RaboDirect PRO12 to date are up on last season and match tickets sold are on par with like for like games in 2010/11.

“Also I am happy to report that ‘traditional’ media coverage has been really excellent plus our website hits, Facebook likes and Twitter followers are ahead of target. This is very important considering the recent Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

“I would like to pay tribute to our new sponsors RaboDirect who have strongly supported their sponsorship across all areas, as they promised they would.

“And finally I would like to offer my congratulations to all the RaboDirect PRO12 teams and clubs in their recent European matches and we look forward to many more thrilling games in the RaboDirect PRO12 in the months ahead.”
