eir Sport wins Rugby World Cup

eir Sport has won the rights to broadcast the 2019 Rugby World Cup from Japan.

As part of the agreement, eir Sport will also broadcast coverage of the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup, which will be hosted in Ireland, as well as the Under-20's Championships from 2017 through to 2019 and the 2018 Rugby Sevens World Cup.

New Zealand lifted the William Webb Ellis Cup in October 2015 and the All Blacks will be bidding for a third consecutive title when the world's best teams travel to Japan in 2019, while Ireland will be looking to progress beyond the quarter-finals for the first time in their history.

Commenting on the new deal, eir Sport CEO Mickey O’Rourke said: "We are delighted to have the secured all the Republic of Ireland rights to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

"We broadcast all 48 games live in 2007 and 2011 and it's great to know we will be doing the same again in 2019. We are very thankful to World Rugby for entrusting us with these rights along with the U-20's Championship, Women's World Cup and Sevens rights.

"It's a fantastic way to launch the new eir Sport brand."

eir Sport will ensure that 13 live games from the Rugby World Cup 2019 will be on free to air TV including the Ireland games, the semi-finals and the final.
