Sky Sports has secured the rights to broadcast National Rugby League (NRL) matches.

As part of the partnership, Sky Sports will show close to 200 rugby league matches per year, double last year’s total.

It will also broadcast three NRL Telstra Premiership weekly matches per round, NRL Telstra Premiership finals series and Grand Final and Holden State of Origin Series.

Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports said: “Sky Sports is the home of rugby league, and the addition of NRL brings the global game to our customers.

“We have the best of both hemispheres for Sky Sports Action and Arena to deliver every thrilling moment of one of the toughest leagues in world sport.”

Todd Greenberg, NRL CEO said: “We’re delighted that Sky Sports will be showcasing rugby league to this extent in 2018 and beyond.

“Our aim is always to ensure that as many people as possible are able to watch rugby league, and this deal will further ensure that the NRL Premiership, as well as many more of our elite competitions and games, will get the audience they deserve.”
