S4C to air all WXV rugby games

S4C will broadcast live all of Wales’s matches at the WXV rugby tournament in New Zealand.

Graham Davies, Head of Sports Commissioning, S4C;

“We are delighted to be broadcasting all of Wales’ games in the new WXV competition. We’re proud of our continued commitment to Women’s sport on S4C; Women’s rugby is growing in popularity, and we want to give the sport and the players the best possible platform and the exposure they deserve. We’re proud to play our role in the development of the Sport, inspiring the next generation of players and ensuring that our content reflects the widest possible audience.”

Launching in October 2023, the WXV is World Rugby’s new women’s international 15s competition. The annual tournament is split into three different tiers, based on the nations’ recent performances.

After finishing in third place in this year’s Tik Tok Women’s Six Nations, Wales will be one of the six teams in the top tier, WXV1. Canada will be Wales’ first opponents on 21 October at the Sky Stadium, Wellington, before they travel to Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin to face the home side New Zealand on 28 October. Wales will then face Australia at the Go Media Stadium, Auckland, on 3 November.

Every Wales game will be broadcast live on S4C Clic and S4C’s Facebook and YouTube channels. S4C will also replay the matches in their entirety later on match days as the games will kick off in the early hours of the morning.

Welsh Rugby Union interim CEO Nigel Walker;

“S4C’s continued commitment to Welsh rugby over the men’s World Cup in France and following Wales Women to New Zealand for WXV is greatly appreciated. The mantra that ‘you have to see it to be it’ has never been more relevant to participation in rugby at all levels in Wales and we are hugely grateful to S4C for the visibility they continue to give to our international stars as well as for their direct investment into our game.”
