Foxtel, Kayo To Broadcast Rugby League World Cup

Pay-TV service, Foxtel and streaming service, Kayo, are set to broadcast the delayed 2021 Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) exclusively on their platforms.

The deal will include all 61 World Cup fixtures from the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments.

Additionally, the men’s tournament will feature 16 nations across 31 matches, while the women’s and wheelchair competitions will see eight teams compete over 15 games.

Commenting on the partnership, Fox Sports executive director, Steve Crawley, said: “Fox League and Kayo Sports are flying this season and to now add the Rugby League World Cup is something to bang the drums about.”

“All exclusive rights across the 61 matches of men’s, women’s and wheelchair footy very much celebrates the best of the best — on the true homes of rugby league,” he said.

RLWC chief executive, Jon Dutton, added: “We know that RLWC2021 is going to be the most watched World Cup and it is very pleasing it will be broadcast in Australia on Fox Sports, keeping the rights within the NRL family and with a network that Australian audiences are comfortable and familiar with.”

“This is a great outcome for International Rugby League and Australian fans,” he said.

The tournaments will kickoff on 15 October and will run until 19 November.

The announcement comes after the New South Wales government devoted AUD$113 million to delivering three new state-of-the-art rugby league centres of excellence over the next four years.
