BBC Retains Broadcast Rights Over Six Nations Till 2017


BBC has extended their contract which gives them exclusive broadcast coverage over Six Nations rugby, to 2017. "The Six Nations is a crown jewel in the sporting calendar and we're delighted that we can continue to bring the tournament to our audiences," said the BBC director of sport, Barbara Slater.

The tournament, contested by England, France, Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy, raked in an average of 4.7million viewers per match the highest its ever had in 13 years.

"Viewing figures continue to grow year on year and we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with the Six Nations to build interest even further through the BBC's unparalleled offering of TV, radio, online and interactive services" said slater.

The chief executive of Six Nations, John Feehan says: The Six Nations remains the top annual event in world rugby and it was a tendering process open again to all broadcasters, but the BBC won out with the best tender again and agreeing it now helps all of our nations plan for the future on a sound financial footing.

He also added: We are delighted that BBC Sport will maintain, extend and enhance its coverage of the RBS Six Nations, the worlds biggest annual rugby tournament, for a further four years to March 2017.
