Nine secures Rugby Australia rights
Nine will broadcast every Wallabies Test from 2021 and one Super Rugby match each weekend.
Broadcast rights for Rugby Australia will switch from Foxtel to Nine from 2021.
The three-year deal will include live Free to Air and ad-free subscription coverage and is worth approximately $100m in cash and contra. There is also a two-year option for Nine to extend.
Nine will broadcast every Wallabies Test from 2021 onwards and one Super Rugby AU match each weekend.
All Super Rugby AU finals will also be Live on Nine.
Other games will air via Stan.
The deal follows a bidding war for rights between Nine and Foxtel (with 10 believed to be attached).
Further to rugby union, Nine will look at opportunities to invest in a range of additional exclusive sports rights, on either a pay or cross-platform basis.
