TNT Sports has announced it has retained the broadcast rights for the Gallagher Premiership Rugby league in the UK and Ireland. 

The new broadcast agreement means that TNT Sports has committed to showcase all 93 matches for the 2024-25 season on a range of platforms, which includes TNT Sports and Discovery+, for every regular league and play-off game, all the way up to the final in June.

Simon Massie-Taylor, Chief Executive Officer Premiership Rugby, said: “This first season alongside TNT Sports has already produced some unmissable drama – so we are delighted to be showcasing every single Gallagher Premiership Rugby game on the same platform from 2024-25.

“Millions of fans have helped break viewership records this year as we work together to innovate and bring the game to new audiences.And with The Run-In kicking-off on Friday night, the race for the play-offs is set to go to the wire ahead of the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final, live on TNT Sports on Saturday, 8 June.” 

TNT Sports intends to create a “world-class line-up” for sports fans to tell the story of the Premiership Rugby league throughout the season through to the final at Twickenham. 

Last November, TNT Sports signed a multi-year broadcast deal with Premiership Women’s Rugby, showcasing 20 live matches per season on its dedicated channels and digital platforms. 

Andrew Georgiou, President and MD, UK & Ireland and WBD Sports Europe, said: “Our new agreement with Premiership Rugby means that, for the very first time, fans will be able to enjoy every single match live throughout the season in one place. 

“TNT Sports and its streaming home discovery+ will be the perfect companion for everyone looking to enjoy immersive rugby coverage alongside outstanding content that will bring fans even closer to the sport.

“With every game live, we can provide an even greater stage for the game, its clubs and the players. We have been broadcasting Premiership Rugby to millions of fans for more than a decade and are excited by the opportunity to go even further through our live broadcasts, programming and extensive coverage across social and digital platforms.”
