The launch of the Women’s Six Nations Championship took place ahead of this weekend’s big kick-off as holders England put their title on the line in what is sure to be an action-packed and exciting Championship.
Ireland’s campaign gets underway on Saturday week, away to Wales.
This year’s Women’s Six Nations is unique in many ways and includes several major ‘firsts’ for the Championship.
For the first time in history, the championship will take place in its own standalone window and will also feature a new tournament format delivering four consecutive weekends of top-class action culminating in the championship’s first-ever Super Saturday.
In another Women’s Six Nations first, fans can now watch all nine games in one place in the UK, Ireland, and Italy, with the BBC, RTÉ and Eurosport showing all matches on a mix of terrestrial and digital services.
In addition to this, in Ireland, all games will be shown on RTÉ.
The Six Nations is also launching ‘Fantasy Rugby’ for the Women’s Championship to showcase players and bring fans closer to the Women’s game.
