The Welsh Rugby Union will team up with S4C to show The Indigo Group Premiership matches live online every Thursday night throughout the season ahead.
All of The Indigo Group Premiership clubs are set to benefit from live coverage at least once in the first seven weekends alone, with the matches to be shown via a new S4C series – Indigo Prem.
The matches will be available online on the S4C Clic player, the S4C Facebook Live page and S4C YouTube page and will also feature on the WRU’s own website and WRU Facebook.
Starting with Swansea’s trip to face Aberavon at the Talbot Athletic Ground on Thursday 9th December (7.30pm), a different league game will be shown each week.
Llanelli’s West Wales derby, against Carmarthen Quins, will be aired live on Thursday 16th December, kick-off 7.30pm with the New Year clash against RGC, at Parc y Scarlets, aired on Monday 3rd January kick-off 5.30pm.
There will be 14 rounds of matches to feast on and, in addition to the Thursday night live game, there will be a weekly highlights show shared across S4C Chwaraeon and WRU social platforms.
Indigo Prem commentary will be provided in Welsh, with an English language option on Clic and You Tube.
“We have worked closely with S4C on a new and exciting plan for The Indigo Group Premiership which we hope will bring in new audiences as well as satisfy the existing fan-base for the very best of Welsh club rugby,” said WRU community director Geraint John.
