SET A CHRISTMAS TV DATE WITH PREMIER SPORTS - WITH 16 HUGE FESTIVE RUGBY DERBIES LIVE
It’s just six weeks until one of the biggest events in the rugby calendar arrives, and with 16 huge festive derbies scheduled from Boxing Day throughout the festive period live on Premier Sports, there will be plenty of thrilling live rugby for supporters to feast themselves on during the Christmas period.
The series of popular and tightly contested derbies will bring out historic rivalries and traditions across Wales, Ireland, Italy and Scotland and Premier Sports’ team will be there to bring every second of the colourful battles live to fans in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
PRO14 Rugby has today confirmed the packed schedule of Christmas Fixtures and rescheduled Guinness PRO14 games with all 18 games shown live by host broadcaster Premier Sports across Rounds 9, 10 and 11 running from Boxing Day to Saturday January 9th 2021.
A total 16 of the 18 games will be derby encounters plus Scottish teams meeting Italian sides during the festive period as Glasgow Warriors welcome Benetton and Zebre host Edinburgh.
In addition, after working closely with PRO14 Rugby, Premier Sports will broadcast two postponed contests from Rounds 4 and Round 6 rescheduled for the first weekend in December in a packed month of rugby. The games are: Connacht v Benetton Rugby (Fri Dec 4th KO 19:35 live on Premier Sports) and Glasgow Warriors v Dragons (Sat Dec 5th KO 19:15 live on Premier Sports).
Benetton v Dragons in Round 8 will now be played a day earlier than originally scheduled moving to Sunday November 29th KO 17:00 (Treviso) 16:00 (UK).
PRO14 Rugby has also confirmed that the R7 Dragons versus Edinburgh game set to take place next Monday (Nov 23rd) has been postponed.
