Stan Sport Announced As Rugby World Cup Broadcaster

Streaming platform, Stan Sport, has been confirmed as the broadcaster of the 2021 and 2023 Rugby World Cups, which will include all 26 matches from the women’s and all 46 matches from the men’s tournaments.

The deal will see all games be streamed live and on demand, with Wallabies matches and the final also being broadcast on Nine Network and 9Now.

Commenting on the deal, World Rugby CEO, Alan Gilpin, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Stan Sport to provide fans in Australia with unrivalled access to our men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups.”

“Stan Sport is the home of rugby in Australia and we are excited by their plans to showcase the sport to new audiences through their innovative content and leading digital platforms.

“We are entering what will be a golden decade for rugby in Australia, culminating in hosting of the men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups in 2027 and 2029 respectively.

“The excitement is building and we are looking forward to working with Stan Sport and our friends at Rugby Australia to get all of Australia excited about rugby once again,” he said.

Stan Sport CEO, Martin Kugeler, added: “Since Stan Sport’s launch in February 2021, we have invested significantly to build a fresh and comprehensive rugby offering for fans in Australia.”

“From grassroots to world class internationals and now the pinnacle of the game, the Rugby World Cups, Stan Sport continues to deliver more men’s and women’s rugby content than ever before.

“Together with our great partners at Rugby Australia, we have grown the audience for rugby significantly and this announcement further highlights our commitment to the game.

“Stan and Nine are uniquely positioned to broadcast the Rugby World Cup to more Australians than ever before with Nine’s Total TV assets (Stan, the Nine Network and 9Now) alongside all of our other channels, including publishing, digital and radio.

“There is no better place to showcase one of the biggest events in global sport and we can’t wait for the women’s World Cup action to kick off in New Zealand this October,” he said.

Coverage of the Women’s World Cup will kick off with a triple-header on 8 October, and will be headlined by the Wallaroos, who take on the Black Ferns at Eden Park.

The announcement comes after Emirates extended their partnership with World Rugby for the 2023 and 2027 World Cups.

Tickets are now available for the fourth annual Women In Sport Summit, which will provide real stories, skills and career moves, from administrators to athletes, and will give a platform for honest conversations and exclusive networking opportunities, with game-changing discussions about the growth, value, and the future of women in sport.
