The first four Catalans Dragons’ Super League matches in August are set to be shown live on French TV channel L’Equipe.
Super League’s host broadcaster Sky Sports is showing 17 games in 21 days after the season resumes on August 2, and this arrangement between the host broadcaster and L’Equipe will allow fans in the French territories of New Caledonia, Wallis & Futuna and French Polynesia to watch Dragons’ matches against St Helens (Aug 2), the Castleford Tigers (Aug 8), Salford Red Devils (Aug 15) and Wigan Warriors (Aug 30) on the L’Equipe website.
Commenting on the new, Catalans Dragons Chairman, Bernard Guasch, stated “The club would like to thank Sky Sports for its contribution to this agreement with the L’Equipe TV Channel. This is an important step in the media coverage of our club and our sport in France.”
“It is a fair reward for our club after the recent on and off the field successes over the last seasons such as our win in the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley or the game at the Barcelona Camp Nou last year, but also for the great squad the staff have built for the 2020 season.”
“I hope that our supporters and partners understand the impact of this media coverage for our club.”
