Following the success of OVO’s partnership with Brumbies Rugby after wrapping up the championship games of the Griffin Legal John I Dent Cup, fans can certainly expect more exciting things to come as OVOPlay becomes the new home of club rugby broadcasting.
OVOPlay aimed to bring grass roots rugby to their subscribers, which began with their digital broadcasting deal with Brumbies Rugby to deliver the John I Dent Cup — known as the premier division of the ACTRU. With this agreement, which started in July, Brumbies Rugby delivers and broadcasts each Match of the Week from the ACT Club Rugby John I Dent Cup on OVOPlay. This broadcast also featured highlights, interviews, and behind the scenes footage —– all made available free to air for Australians and data-free for OVO mobile subscribers.
Following the success of the digital broadcasting of other sports, like streaming gymnastics and motorsports, OVO also expects further growth of the ACT Club Rugby community, as well as the expansion of the rugby channel on OVOPlay. In an interview, OVO CEO Matt Jones was quoted saying, “As we grow the rugby channel on OVOPlay, it’ll continue to bring more competitions across the country together, offering data-free access to amazing matches and content that fans would never normally get to see.”
