Leinster Rugby | Premier Sport and Leinster TV confirm the schools’ schedule

Leinster Rugby are able to confirm this afternoon that 13 matches of the Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Schools Senior Cup 2023 will be available to watch either on Premier Sports or via a Leinster Rugby live stream.

Premier Sports have reconfirmed they will broadcast eight Schools Senior Cup games to continue a long-standing partnership, with a further five first round games also available via a streaming service provided by Leinster Rugby.

The competition begins this Sunday 29th January at Energia Park with the opening match of St Michael’s College and Belvedere College streamed by Leinster Rugby.

The first game to be broadcast live by Premier Sports will face last year’s champions Blackrock College and Presentation College Bray at Energia Park on Monday 30 January.

All four quarter-finals, both semi-finals and the final will be broadcast live and exclusively on Premier Sports.

Leinster Rugby, in partnership with Videos On The Net, will broadcast five more first round matches played at Energia Park and not covered by Premier Sports live on www.irishrugbylive.ie.

Premier Sports CEO Michael O’Rourke commented on the announcement: “Premier Sports has a proud long-term association with the Bank of Ireland’s Leinster Rugby Schools Senior Cup and we are delighted that the association continues this season and beyond.

“The best of this wonderful competition will once again be available live and exclusively on Premier Sports and we are very much looking forward to the games that will begin in the coming weeks.”

The five games live streamed by Leinster Rugby are available on a subscription basis, with each game costing €7.99 for the live and €8.99 for the VOD (video on demand) option.

There is also a five game package available for purchase for €35.00 and subscription can be purchased through the Videos on the Net platform, www.irishrugbylive.ie

Based in Wicklow, Videos on the Net have long been suppliers to both the IRFU and Leinster Rugby and will utilize commentators and contributors from the competing schools to add an extra layer of insight and analysis.

The first round match between Blackrock College and Presentation College and all matches shown by Premier Sports will be broadcast live on Premier Sports 1 and 2 (Sky channel 412 and 421) and with a ‘Sports Extra’ membership on NOW.

Premier Sports has been broadcasting in the Republic of Ireland since 2019 and televising matches of the BKT United Rugby Championship and also holding rights such as TOP14 Rugby, Premier League, FA Cup, La Liga, Scottish Cup and Premier Sports Cup, Coppa Italia and more.
