Public-Private Partnership


This afternoon.

Just in.

Via RTE:

RTÉ and Virgin Media Television today announced details of its historic partnership to bring all of the 2022 Six Nations Rugby action, free-to-air for Irish sports fans. Starting on Friday 4 February with Ireland U-20’s taking on France, coverage includes all matches from Ireland Men’s, Women’s and U-20s tournaments.

The partnership will see all matches in the Guinness Six Nations equally aired across both broadcasters, showcasing the agonies and ecstasies of Rugby’s Greatest Championship. Ireland open the 2022 edition of the Championship on Saturday 5 February against reigning champions, Wales. Then on 26 March the Women’s Six Nations begins with current title holders England taking on their age-old rivals Scotland.

    Makes sense as presumably savings are significant while keeping these national sporting events available to the biggest domestic audience possible.

    Paying a premium to ensure exclusive access to anything should be outside RTE’s remit, unless the costs for ‘joint custody’ are somehow higher!
