Premier Sports launched in August 2010 to primarily facilitate out of market premium sports content to audiences in the United Kingdom. The channel is available through subscription in over 16 million homes via the SKY and Virgin platforms. We are also available in every home in HD via our online Premier Player.
Our focus is on PRO14 Rugby, Ice Hockey, Rugby League, Motorsports, GAA, MMA and Football from around the world. We are delighted to be able to bring fans over 1000 events per year including every game from the 15 games per week from the NHL, Toronto Wolfpack games in the Betfred Championship and every minute of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series from North America.
The channel was also proud to be the main host broadcaster for 23 of the 28 matches from the very successful Rugby League World Cup that took place in England and Wales during 2013 as well as 2 Copa America tournaments in 2015 and 2016.
On the 30th April 2018, PRO14 Rugby signed a landmark partnership with Premier Sports and FreeSports to broadcast every game from the Guinness PRO14 live across the UK and Northern Ireland for at least the next three years.The agreement from the 2018-19 season means supporters in the UK, including Northern Ireland, can experience the Guinness PRO14 like never before with all 152 games broadcast on Premier Sports 1 & 2, with no less than 21 games (one per round) shown live Free-To-Air on FreeSports.
We believe in giving our customers a strong voice on how the channel is run and we constantly look at sports rights and make changes to our schedule based on requests from fans of the station on Facebook and through email.
