BBC Wales and S4C have signed a new four-year broadcast deal to showcase Rugby’s Guinness Pro12.

The broadcasters will share fixtures across the season. BBC Wales will show Friday night matches on Scrum V Live, with S4C covering Sunday afternoon fixtures on Clwb Rygbi.

“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with BBC Wales and S4C,” said John Feehan, chief Executive of Pro12 Rugby.

“And with Guinness, our new sponsor, on board, we look forward to growing our competition with all our broadcasters and clubs attracting larger audiences and more fans.”

BBC Wales director Rhodri Talfan Davies added: “The new qualification rules for Europe will provide real added spice from next season, making the Pro12 competition must-see TV for Welsh rugby fans.

“We’ve struck a terrific deal with Celtic Rugby that ensures every fan in Wales has the very best view of the action.”
