Major broadcast boost for Super League in Europe as Catalans secure deal

Following the successful launch of national French coverage through L’Equipe, there is more good news for the Catalans Dragons with their televised Super League fixtures also to be shown through Spain by TV3, the main Catalunya television channel.

The coverage will start with the game against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley on Saturday week, and continues with the home games against Warrington Wolves on April 8 (Easter Saturday), and against St Helens on May 5 – and also includes the Magic Weekend match against Wigan Warriors at St James’ Park in Newcastle on June 3.

The Dragons are currently joint top of the Super League table after a superb win at Wigan last Thursday to maintain their 100% start to the season and Christophe Levy, their Commercial Director, said:

“We are delighted to announce this new agreement with TV3, and we thank RL Commercial and their partners IMG and RDA in England for their support. It’s great news for the development of the club.

“Since we played Wigan at Camp Nou in 2019, and with our Challenge Cup and Grand Final appearances broadcast live on the Catalan channel, the fact that regular season games are now shown helps to cement the club in the Catalan sporting landscape.

“This announcement comes in an important week for the club which will sign a partnership agreement on Saturday with the ‘Plataforma per la Llengua’ for the promotion of the Catalan language at the Gilbert Brutus stadium. Òscar Escuder i de la Torre, the President of ‘Plataforma per la Llengua’, will attend the game against Hull KR at the stadium on Saturday.”
