Six Nations Rugby continue to work on promoting and raising the profile of the Women’s Championship and are e nsuring that all matches will once again be produced for television to a high quality broadcast standard.

In doing so, it will ensure that each country's Women's Six Nations Championship matches are available live either on television, or streamed live on Six Nations and Unions digital channels.   A dedicated roundup highlights programme will again be available both on the BBC Network on Sunday evenings in the UK and on RTE on Monday evening in Ireland. 

The Women’s Six Nations Championship attracted record live TV and streaming audiences across the Six Countries last year with over 7.5 million viewers following the live matches and a further 2.2 million on highlights.All 15 matches of the Women’s Six Nations Championship were also broadcast in 175 countries around the World. 

The Women’s Six Nations also boasts a number of dedicated digital channels with record numbers visiting the website as well as a strong audience on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
 


John Feehan, CEO of Six Nations Rugby said:  "We are excited about the level of interest shown in the Women’s Six Nations Championship last season and expect this interest to rise again during the next Championship. The Women’s game development forms part of the ongoing work done by the Six Nations Council who are constantly looking at the Championship and at ways of developing our brand and our sport".
