Italian rugby fans will have guaranteed access to the Guinness PRO14 until 2021 with DAZN winning the rights to screen the cross-hemisphere Championship on their streaming and broadcast platforms in Italy.

The three-year agreement ensures that fans of Benetton Rugby and Zebre Rugby Club will see every one of their team’s home and away games with coverage of the Championship on Italian soil including the Guinness PRO14 Final Series games and the Final itself.

Completing the line-up

DAZN now completes the line-up of home-based broadcasters for the Guinness PRO14 which includes Premier Sport & S4C (UK), eir sport & TG4 (Republic of Ireland) and Super Sport (South Africa). DAZN, part of the Perform group, will also be available to all Mediaset Premium subscribers in Italy across their Smart TVs, mobile phones, tablets, PCs and gaming consoles and also available to Sky Italia customers.

Welcome to the family

Martin Anayi, CEO of PRO14 Rugby, welcomed DAZN to the Championship’s broadcast family: “The entry of DAZN to the Guinness PRO14 is a game-changer for the coverage of club rugby in Italy. Now rugby fans in Italy can access more games than ever before from the Guinness PRO14 across digital platforms that work best for them. Innovation is a key driver in everything we do and the arrival of DAZN also ensures that our production standards will be raised right across the Championship.
