The RFU has confirmed the Allianz Premier 15s final at Sixways Stadium will be broadcast live on BT Sport, BBC iPlayer and Premier15s.com.
The top four teams in the competition will progress to semi-final play-offs, played at the home ground of the top two teams on Sunday 22 May KOs 2pm and 4.30pm (broadcast live on BT Sport 2, BBC iPlayer and Premier15s.com) with the finalists competing for the title at the home of Worcester Warriors just under a fortnight later on Friday 3 June, KO 3pm (BT Sport 1).
The final regular round (Saturday 14 May) will see at least two fixtures streamed live on Premier15s.com and BBC iPlayer with tries from all other matches played in live to the programmes as they happen.
Saracens and Harlequins have contested the three finals to date with the former twice victorious. Gerard Mullen’s Quins earned their maiden title with a 25-17 win at Kingsholm in 2021, in a match also broadcast live on BT Sport.
After 16 rounds and the most competitive league campaign to date, current leaders Saracens are the only side guaranteed a spot in the top four with Bristol Bears, Exeter Chiefs, Harlequins, Wasps and Loughborough Lightning battling for the remaining places in the final two rounds.
Sixways has hosted a number of international matches, the most recent England Women’s autumn international against the USA which attracted a 7,515 strong crowd.
RFU Marketing Director Ewan Turney said: “This has been the most exciting and competitive Allianz Premier15s season to date and it is fitting that the finale to the season will get the platform it deserves and be seen by thousands across the country.
“BT Sport have built an excellent reputation across their rugby coverage and we are pleased to continue the partnership. We are expecting a record crowd for the Allianz Premier 15s final at Sixways on what should be a great occasion.”
Rachel Knight, sports rights director, BT Sport, said: “BT Sport is the place to be for the best in women’s and men’s club rugby over the coming weeks. The Premier 15s joins our coverage of the finals from rugby union’s European club competitions, the Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup, and, the pinnacle of English club rugby, the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final.”
