This NSW Rugby TV app will ensure you’ll never miss a moment, no matter where you are.
“Through NSW Rugby TV, community rugby has a fantastic opportunity to promote its sponsors and partners via a range of commercial opportunities including TVCs, billboards and in-program integrations, enabling all levels of Rugby in NSW to directly and indirectly reap the benefits.
“The majority of revenue generated by the service will also be retained by the game to be reinvested into game development and a multitude of rugby programs in the future.
“The NSW Rugby TV app is a giant leap forward for community rugby and we are proud to lead the way in broadcasting community sport through our partners at Cluch.”
Hamish Bayliss, Head of Commercial for Cluch, added, “Cluch is delighted to extend our partnership with NSW Rugby and launch the NSW Rugby TV app. The NSW Rugby TV app will combine a world-class streaming experience for fans with a powerful data and analytics solution only possible through the aggregation of multiple competitions.”
