Licensing reminder: The Rugby World Cup 2019

In September the home nations will be competing in the Rugby World Cup in Japan - where the time difference means an early kick-off for many of matches...

The Quarter finals will kick off at 8:15am or 11:15am, followed by semi-finals and finals all with 9am kick offs.

Hypothetically if England win the World Cup again (bias check √√√)  they will compete in five matches kicking off before 10am.

If your licence does not provide for service prior to 10am and you wish to show all home nation games you would require TENs to cover 13 separate days. Some licences contain provision for opening earlier specially to show international sport so now is the time to review your licence to see if a variation or TENs are required for the tournament.


If you require assistance reviewing the terms of your licence,

Simply quote your membership number when you call.
