BT Sport is set to continue as the exclusive pay-television broadcaster of European Professional Club Rugby competitions in the UK and Ireland, SportBusiness understands.

A deal has been agreed in principle between BT and EPCR to extend the telco’s pay-television rights deal from the upcoming 2022-23 season onward, but a decision is yet to be made on the duration of the contract. BT will continue to show every match from the top-tier European Rugby Champions Cup and the second-tier European Rugby Challenge Cup.
