Aviva Premiership Rugby will be broadcast on BT Sport for the next six seasons in a new TV deal.

The top flight of English club rugby will be live on BT Sport until at least the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

“BT Sport has been a fantastic partner for English club rugby so we are delighted that we have been able to extend our relationship with them for a further four years,” says Mark McCafferty, the chief executive of Premiership Rugby. “This is the longest TV agreement in the history of Premiership Rugby.”

Alex Green, Director TV, BT, is among those from the trailblazing telco-turned-broadcaster appearing at this year’s TV Connect (28th – 30th April 2015 ExCel, London). Download the full free brochure right here.
