Simon Green, Head of BT Sport said “We want to give more people the opportunity to experience all the excitement of Aviva Premiership Rugby and see just how good our coverage is. Making games available for all to watch has proved to be extremely popular, our last free game Gloucester v Worcester achieved an average in match audience of 134,000. This is a fantastic way of giving even more people a taste of BT Sport.”
Dominic Hayes, Premiership Rugby’s Commercial Director said: “The match is already sold out so it is great news for all Aviva Premiership Rugby fans that it can be screened to as wide an audience as possible. The
Chiefs’ story is one of the most compelling since the game turned professional and in this match they will be facing one of Aviva Premiership Rugby’s traditional powerhouses.”
