Energia AIL Match Day Live is returning for the 2022/23 season to offer club rugby fans live commentary and up-to-the-minute updates from around the grounds on an Energia All-Ireland League match day.

The first event of the season is this Saturday (October 1) to coincide with the return of the Men’s Divisions from 1A to 2C.

Match Day Live builds on fresh initiatives already launched this season such as the AIL Women’s Division Game Of The Week and a new dedicated Energia AIL microsite for all six divisions on IrishRugby.ie.

Irish Rugby have once again teamed up with the Club Scene Podcast, powered by Energia, to deliver the broadcast which will be hosted by Shannon RFC at their Men’s Division 1A season opener against Terenure College.

Club reporters will be standing by to provide all the updates and sounds from around the grounds, and there will also be live commentary from the Match Day Live Hub in Thomond Park.

What Is The Energia Match Day Live Experience?

Energia AIL club supporters can tune in for free to a live two-hour audio broadcast from 2.15pm to 4.15pm on match day.

The show begins with a run-down of the day’s Energia AIL action with live check-ins and updates from around the grounds at key games.

At 2.30pm, live anchor commentary begins of Shannon vs Terenure College.

Throughout that game, we will break away from live commentary to go around the grounds for pitchside updates from local reporters and club officers with action and atmosphere of other games. Score updates from all live games are provided from the broadcast team.

Fans who may be at Energia AIL games themselves will be encouraged to tune in at half time for the latest scores from all 25 games on the day. A classified round-up with full-time results from all games will also take place from 4pm to 4.15pm.

How Can I Access Energia AIL Match Day Live?

Anyone who goes to IrishRugby.ie this Saturday will be able to access the link via the home page.

The broadcast will be hosted through Twitter’s Spaces platform, meaning Twitter users will also be able to access the broadcast by following @irishrugby on their Twitter app.

The broadcast will also be recorded and can be listened back on-demand via IrishRugby.ie or Twitter.
