Starting tonight, TG4 Rugbaí Beo will broadcast 42 matches of the new United Rugby Championship (URC). It will include 26 matches involving Irish local clubs and 16 matches involving international clubs.
The URC will bring together existing PRO14 teams and South African clubs to form a world-class 16-team league. At their first Rugby World Championship, the Irish counties will capture the best from South Africa, Italy, Scotland and Wales in this new hemisphere-wide tournament.
The first match between Cardiff Blues-Conach tonight starts at 19.30 on TG4 and TG4 Player. Tomorrow evening at Leinster vs Vodacom Bulls Aviva Stadium on TG4 and TG4 Player starting at 16:50.
Any Irish County interest game (over 50 games!) Is available for free broadcast on Irish TV. Everything goes back to the partnership between TG4 and RTÉ to bring world-class URC games to Irish fans. This ensures that it will be available for free to Irish audiences for the next four years. TG4 and RTÉ will broadcast the URC Final live for years in a row.
Rugby has become part of the main fabric of the station’s sports offer. Over the years, Rugby Bio has embarked on a number of innovations in its coverage and analysis, including behind-the-scenes reference briefings, warm-up interviews, and audio interactions with head coaches.
TG4 continues to consolidate its twenty-year association with the league, which first aired in 2001 in the Celtic League.
Mayor Teresa Na Dubgail, who has been distributing Rugbas Bio for more than a decade, says they rely heavily on live sports broadcasting. However, for the past year and a half, this has not always been possible, so “it is very exciting to watch this new tournament”.
“The partnership is huge and the games reach a wide audience in Ireland,” said Rugby presenter Bio Myr Teresa. “It’s more accessible to the fact that it’s streamed generously and will now be broadcast to the widest audience in league history.”
In the ranks of the incredibly strong South African teams from the Celtic Sharks, DHL Stormers, Emirates Lions and Vodacom Bulls, Mayor Teresa says teams from other countries need to perform better to compete with these top South African teams. In the new league format, you can see the variety of new styles, languages, and cultures that are encountered weekly at the many iconic venues in the heart of rugby. This includes a variety of world-famous rugby players: World Cup winners, Guinness Six Nations icons, rugby leagues, players from the British and Irish Lions Tour.
As all sports emerge with caution from contagion, the URC’s list of competitions should lead to real competition and take it to the next level.
We had the honor of returning to the stadiums to follow the matches last August. But without the fans it’s completely different, you really missed that atmosphere. It means a lot that live fans are slowly coming back, and I know fans will enjoy being there now. ”
Presented by Máre Treasa Rugbaí Beo, Eimear Considine will return as Analyst. Emir, who plays for the UL Bohemians, is currently Munster’s assistant captain and has played as an Irish linebacker in his latest Six Nations campaign. She was part of the all-female analysis and commentary team for last year’s Guinness Pro Round 7 match between Champions Leinster and Cardiff. MGire Treasa says it doesn’t look any different, because TG4 has always been the talk of the town and sports analysts.
“It was only when I mentioned it that I realized this was the first time an Irish broadcaster had done something like this. Then you come back and think, ‘Wow, that’s something we should be proud of.’ Hopefully next time it will happen, no one is talking about it, because it will be normal. ”
The new league will feature world-class rugby at popular venues. Mayor Teresa says the fact that South African teams now face other teams from Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales will make this match incredible.
Scarlett was very strong, Benetton won the Rainbow Cup, but Leinster is still an eight-time champion. It has been said that Irish teams have not been in demand for some years. They can go without every season, but now I think they will face a completely different challenge in the next South African teams.
“That’s why I’m looking forward to hosting three-time Super Rugby Leinster champion Vodacom Bulls tomorrow night (September 25). This will be an unforgettable match! “
But after all tonight the Cardiff Blues-Conach match will be televised. When these teams last met in February of this year, Connach had a 32-17 win over the Cardiff Blues in a row at Guinness World Records PRO14. Will Cardiff react in their minds or will Conach win again?
As Monster prepares to host the South African tournament in the coming weeks in the form of Sharks, Connach vs Vodacom Bulls and Ulster vs. Bennetton, there are exciting times for rugby fans everywhere!
Watch the Cardiff Blues vs Connach match starting today September 24 on TG4 Rugbaí Beo.
