Date published: Monday, July 15, 2013

The 2013 Festival of World Cups Finals Day, which sees the Women’s, Students and Police Rugby League World Cups conclude in an action-packed day of Rugby League, will be screened free-to-view on Premier Sports on Thursday July 18.

Finals Day takes place at Headingley Carnegie Stadium, Leeds, on Sunday July 14 and Premier Sports, the official broadcast partner of the Kingstone Press Championships, will be in attendance to record action from the three games to be screened on Thursday July 18, 9.00pm to 11.30pm, alongside highlights of the Wheelchair and Armed Forces World Cup finals which conclude on Saturday July 13.

The broadcast will add to Premier Sports’ already extensive coverage of Rugby League which will see them showcase over 250 games during the 2013 season including all 28 Rugby League World Cup 2013 matches this Autumn.

“We are delighted that Premier Sports will be showcasing the Festival of World Cups Finals Day on their platform as it is sure to be an entertaining and exciting day of Rugby League,” said Festival of World Cups Director Julia Lee.

“Premier Sports have built a strong relationship with the Rugby League community over the past few years and it is a fantastic result for the players involved in all three games from Finals Day to know that the action will be shown on Premier Sports.”

Premier Sports Executive Producer Neal Coupland said: “At Premier Sports we are delighted to once again showcase games from across the Rugby League community.

“The Festivals of World Cups is a great concept and the perfect way to compliment Premier’s coverage of RLWC 2013 in the Autumn which will see all 28 games screened live on the channel.”
