Eurosport, France Télévisions secure rights to Women’s Rugby World Cup

International sports broadcaster Eurosport and public-service broadcaster France Télévisions have been confirmed as rights-holders of this year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup national team tournament in France.

Eurosport will show a total of 14 live matches from the tournament, which will take place in Ireland from August 9-27. Eurosport’s coverage will include the semi-finals and the final, as well as every match played by France.

France Télévisions will broadcast live coverage of all matches involving France, plus the final.

France Télévisions will also cover the tournament on its various magazine shows and via its ‘francetvsport’ website and apps.

France Télévisions said last month that it had reached an agreement to cover the tournament, although it was unclear at the time whether it would be the sole broadcast partner.
