The FloSports has acquired US broadcast rights of the Autumn Nations Cup. The tournament will be telecasted on the OTT platform next month.
The deal was signed off by the Six Nations tournament body. The governing body had invited both Georgia and Fiji to take part in an eight-team competition alongside its traditional European teams- England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, France, and Italy.
FloSports subscribers will gain access to live coverage for 16 games of the competition through its dedicated FloRugby channel and the FloSports mobile application.
The competition will run over four weekends from mid-November till mid-December, following the completion of this year’s postponed Six Nations tournament.
In addition to the 16 games of the tournament, two additional warmup matches have been made available to FloSports subscribers. Scotland will come up against Georgi, while France face Wales in the warm-up games.
In September 2020, Amazon Prime and Channel 4 acquired rights of the Autumn Nations Cup in the UK. Meanwhile, it was also recently confirmed that UK-based Premier Sports had launched a new subscription streaming service in multiple Asian territories that will broadcast the tournament.
FloSports’ director of rights acquisition Adam Armstrong said, “FloSports has a proven track record of fueling growth and engagement across a variety of sports, and we believe there is a dedicated fan base across the country that is looking for consistent delivery of rugby matches and content. This partnership is the next step in our evolution to achieve that goal.”
