The NSWRL is bringing more VB NSW Cup to you than ever before.
Starting this weekend, as the VB NSW Cup finals series kicks off, the NSWRL will live stream selected matches to nswrl.com.au. That will ensure all 2014 VB NSW Cup finals matches are broadcast either by the NSWRL’s broadcast partners Fox Sports or by nswrl.com.au.
“The VB NSW Cup is the premier senior rugby league competition in NSW and it deserves to be seen by as many people as possible,” said NSWRL chief executive David Trodden.
“As the second-tier competition to the NRL in NSW, its audience has increased significantly through our partnership with Fox Sports. Yet it is also vitally important to me that supporters have access to every game.
“The launch of our live streaming will also mean the New Zealand Warriors fans who have enjoyed Sky Sports NZ’s coverage this year will not miss out on seeing their team progress through the finals. This will be just the start of our commitment to ensuring as much of NSW as possible, and many more supporters interstate or overseas, get to enjoy the VB NSW Cup. We also plan to live stream many more matches in 2015.”
The NSWRL will begin its VB NSW Cup live stream coverage this Sunday, broadcasting the entire triple header from Leichhardt Oval.
The live stream broadcast will kick off with minor premiers Penrith taking on the fourth-placed Illawarra Cutters. Mounties’ clash with the Warriors will follow. To wrap up the first weekend of the finals, Wests Tigers will play finals newcomers Wyong.
