FloSports to provide Pro14 coverage in multiple markets

Sports streaming service FloSports has agreed a three-season deal to show matches of the cross-border Pro14 rugby union league in multiple markets, from 2018-19 to 2020-21.

The deal covers exclusive Pro14 rights in France, Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Live and on-demand coverage will be available via FloRugby.com.

FloRugby will stream all remaining matches in the 2018-19 Pro14 season as well as all 152 matches per season in both the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. FloRugby’s Pro14 coverage will begin on October 26.

The deal was struck with the RDA agency, which is distributing Pro14 rights outside the competing nations (the UK, Ireland, Italy and sub-Saharan Africa), from 2018-19 to 2020-21.
