BBC ALBA Announces Ground-breaking Women’s Rugby Broadcast Deal

Scottish Rugby has reached a ground-breaking deal with BBC ALBA to televise an unprecedented number of women’s matches over the next year.

The deal includes not only the broadcast of the elite sport with women’s Six Nations coverage, but also coverage of the final of Scotland’s leading domestic competition, the Sarah Beaney Cup - a huge show of support to reflect the growth of the women’s game.

The announcement comes just months after a major new deal for Scottish women’s football on BBC ALBA was announced, along with the first live broadcast of women’s shinty, strengthening the channel’s position as the home of Scottish women’s sport.

The first Scotland Women rugby match to be shown under the new deal will be when Scotland host Canada at Scotstoun on Tuesday 27 November. The game will be available live across the UK on the channel and via the BBC iPlayer.

Scottish Rugby is currently promoting women’s rugby with the aim to qualify for the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2021, and has recently restructured the playing season to encourage wider participation. Both MG ALBA and Scottish Rugby are committed to increasing the profile of the women’s game together in the run up to the Women’s Rugby World Cup.

Dominic McKay, Chief Operating Officer at Scottish Rugby said:

“We are working hard to ensure women’s rugby has the strongest possible platform to help develop players and broaden the appeal of the game and this partnership with BBC ALBA is an exciting addition to that. We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with BBC ALBA through its coverage of the Premiership and PRO14 and so we are very excited to work with them to broadcast women’s rugby in Scotland.”

Gemma Fay, Head of Girl’s and Women’s Rugby at Scottish Rugby said:

“I am delighted BBC ALBA have announced they will be covering the Scottish Women’s Rugby matches on their channel. The commitment they are showing to Scottish women’s sport is really positive and we hope this will in turn help to inspire the next generation of rugby players.”

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Strategy and Partnership at MG ALBA said:

“We are delighted to be able to showcase the growing women’s game in Scotland with both Six Nations coverage and the Sarah Beaney Cup Final. We’ve demonstrated with our previous coverage of the PRO14 competition how we can usefully partner to catalyse the growth of a sport, and engage new audiences - sometimes for the first time – with Gaelic. I am proud that BBC ALBA is able to showcase these sportswomen’s efforts both in the national team but also the Sarah Beaney Cup teams. We’re excited too to kick off with making the Canada game available there by livestreaming it at the end of the month.”

Sport Minister Joe FitzPatrick said:

“This partnership is a key step in celebrating and raising awareness of women’s rugby in Scotland. Not only will elite female fixtures be broadcast, including the Women’s Six Nations, but the grassroots game will gain exposure with people able to view the final of the key domestic competition, the Sarah Beaney Cup.

“Scottish Rugby and their partners have worked hard to increase the number of women and girls participating in rugby, and the commitment of BBC and MG ALBA to showcasing the sport is another step forward.”

BBC ALBA Ag Ainmeachadh Sàr Aonta Craolaidh airson Rugbaidh nam Ban

Tha Rugbaidh nam Ban an Alba air sàr aonta a ruighinn le BBC ALBA gus àireamh mhòr de mhaidsichean a chraoladh thar na bliadhna a tha romhainn.

Chan e a-mhàin geamannan Sia Nàiseanan nam Ban a bhios air an craoladh, ach cuideachd a’ chuairt dheireannach den phrìomh ghèam aig an taigh, Cupa Sarah Beaney – taic mhòr airson fàs geama nam ban.

Tha am fiosrachadh a’ tighinn dìreach mìosan an dèidh prìomh aonta airson ball-coise nam ban, agus a’ chiad chraoladh de iomain nam ban, a’ neartachadh suidheachadh an t-seanail mar dhachaigh spòrs nam ban ann an Alba.

Is e a’ chiad ghèam Rugbaidh nam Ban an Alba a thèid a shealltainn fon aonta ùr an gèam eadar Alba agus Canada aig Scotstoun air Dimàirt 27 Samhain. Bidh an gèam air fhaicinn beò thar na RA air an t-seanail agus air BBC iPlayer.

Tha Rugbaidh na h-Alba an-dràsta a’ putadh rugbaidh nam ban leis an amas a bhith ann am farpais Cupa an t-Saoghail airson Rugbaidh nam Ban ann an 2021, agus tha iad air a’ gheama atharrachadh o chionn ghoirid gus a bhith a’ brosnachadh com-pàirteachadh. Tha MG ALBA agus Rugbaidh na h-Alba le chèile dealasach mu bhith a’ meudachadh profail a’ gheama mar a bhithear a’ dol air adhart gu Cupa Rugbaidh an t-Saoghail.

Thuirt Dominic McKay Prìomh Oifigear Gnìomh aig Rugbaidh na h-Alba:

“Tha sinn ag obair cruaidh gus dèanamh cinnteach gu bheil an t-ùrlar as làidir is urrainn aig rugbaidh nam ban gus cuideachadh ann a bhith a’ leasachadh nan cluicheadairean agus a bhith a’ meudachadh ùidh sa ghèam agus tha an com-pàirteachadh seo le BBC ALBA a’ cur gu mòr ri sin. Tha càirdeas fad-ùine air a bhith againn le BBC Alba tron obair aca a thaobh A’ Phrìomh Lìg agus PRO14 agus mar sin tha sinn air leth toilichte a bhith ag obair còmhla riutha gus rugbaidh nam ban a chraoladh ann an Alba.”

Thuirt Gemma Fay, Ceannard Rugbaidh nam Ban agus nan Caileag aig Rugbaidh na h-Alba:

“Tha mi air leth toilichte gu bheil BBC ALBA air ainmeachadh gum bi iad a’ craoladh maidsichean Rugbaidh nam an Alba air an t-seanail aca. Tha an dealas a tha iad air nochdadh do spòrs nam ban ann an Alba deimhinneach dha-rìribh agus tha sinn an dòchas gun cuidich seo ann a bhith a’ brosnachadh an ath ghinealach de chluicheadairean rugbaidh.”

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Ro-innleachd agus Com-pàirteachas aig MG ALBA:

“Tha sinn toilichte gu bheil e comasach a bhith a’ sealltainn mar a tha geama nam ban a’ fàs ann an Alba le geamannan Sia Nàiseanan nam Ban agus Gèam Deireannach Cupa Sarah Beaney. Tha sinn air a dhearbhadh le bhith a’ craoladh farpais PRO 14, mar as urrainn dhuinn a bhith nar com-pàirtichean gus cuideachadh a bhith a’ fàs spòrs, agus a’ bhith a’ tàladh luchd-amhairc ùr – cuid airson a’ chiad uair – chun na Gàidhlig. Tha mi air mo dhòigh gun urrainn dha BBC ALBA a bhith a’ comharrachadh oidhirpean nam ban ann an spòrs sna sgiobaidhean nàiseanta agus cuideachd ann an sgiobaidhean Cupa Sarah Beaney. Tha sinn air leth toilichte cuideachd a bhith a’ sealltainn gèam Chanada san dùthaich sin aig deireadh na mìos.”

Thuirt am Ministear Spòrs Joe FitzPatrick:

“Is e prìomh cheum a tha sa chom-pàirteachas seo ann a bhith a’ comharrachadh agus a’ togail mothachadh air rugbaidh nam ban ann an Alba. Chan e a-mhàin gum bi geamannan cudromach nam ban air an craoladh, nam measg Sia Nàiseanan nam Ban, ach cuideachd gèam aig ìre nas ìsle leis gum bi e comasach do dhaoine a’ chuairt dheireannach fhaicinn den phrìomh fharpais aig an taigh, Cupa Sarah Beaney.

“Tha Rugbaidh na h-Alba agus an com-pàirtichean air obrachadh gu cruaidh gus an àireamh de mhnathan agus de chaileagan a tha an sàs ann an rugbaidh àrdachadh, agus tha dealas a’ BhBC agus MG ALBA ann a’ bhith a’ taisbeanadh an spòrs na cheum eile air adhart.”
