16 July

The Welsh Rugby Union, the na­tional gov­ern­ing body for the sport, com­pleted a long-term rights deal with the BBC, the UK pub­lic-ser­vice broad­caster, en­sur­ing in­creased ex­po­sure for the Welsh na­tional team’s au­tumn test matches.

The agree­ment runs un­til the end of 2018 and makes live cov­er­age of all of Wales’ au­tumn test matches avail­able to a wide au­di­ence, stip­u­lat­ing for the first time that all Welsh in­ter­na­tional matches played in the au­tumn pe­riod are shown on UK-wide net­work tele­vi­sion by the BBC.
