Video: Channel 4 reveals Super League promotion

Channel 4 Super League

Channel 4 has revealed its first Super League promotional material ahead of the 2022 season.

Super League will be shown live on free-to-air television for the first time in 2022 after officials agreed a two-year deal with Channel 4.

The Leeds-based broadcaster will show 10 matches a year. 

That begins with Leeds’ home clash with Warrington in the opening round of Super League on Saturday, February 12th.

Channel 4 also recently signed a multi-year agreement to show live, uninterrupted Formula E coverage on free-to-air television in the UK.


The move ends Sky Sports’ 26-year monopoly of live Super League.

Sky will continue to show 66 matches a season including the Magic Weekend and the Grand Final. Additionally, they will have the first pick of games in each of the regular rounds as well as the play-offs.
