Our League to charge for coverage of England Knights-Jamaica clash

Drew Darbyshire

Our League will broadcast the international clash between England Knights and Jamaica on Sunday, as well as two Oceania Cup fixtures this autumn.

The Knights face the Reggae Warriors at Emerald Headingley in Leeds on Sunday, October 20 (3pm).

That will be followed by two Oceania Cup fixtures being shown during Great Britain’s tour of the southern hemisphere: Samoa-Fiji at Eden Park on Saturday, November 2; and Fiji-Papua New Guinea at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch on Saturday, November 9.

A membership on Our League is free but they will charge for the coverage of all three men’s internationals this autumn.

There will be an early bird price of £2.49 for anybody who signs up before midnight this Saturday, October 19.

The price will be £4.99 from 00.01am on Sunday, October 20. All three games will be repeated on at least one occasion during the 24 hours after live coverage.

Rugby Football League chief commercial officer, Mark Foster, said: “We’re making a small charge for coverage of the Knights-Jamaica game which we think is great value for money for those in the UK and around the world who want to watch the game but are unable to make it along to Leeds on Sunday.

“It will be a great occasion, showing Jamaica’s preparations for the 2021 World Cup and also the exciting young players we have coming through under Paul Anderson in the Knights.

“We are also pleased to have secured exclusive coverage in the UK of the two really attractive fixtures from the Oceania Cup, which will feature a host of names familiar to British supporters – and will also show how much we have to look forward to when all these teams head for England in 2021.”
