Rugby World Cup in France: which matches on which channels?


The event will be held in nine cities in France in September and October. Several broadcasters will offer the meetings on their channels.

Sixteen years after having organized the Rugby World Cup, France is once again hosting the competition, from September 8 to October 28, in nine cities: Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Nice, Saint-Denis (Stade de France ), Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.

Match sharing

Given the importance of the event and accustomed to its broadcasting (apart from in 2003, it has been doing it since 1991…), the TF1 group won the rights in September 2021. A few weeks ago, it finally decided to give up 28 of the 48 matches to its competitors France 2 and M6.

Three channels will therefore share the broadcast in full and unencrypted.

TF1 will obviously have the advantage with twenty matches including the most beautiful posters.

The group will thus offer three of the four group matches of the Blues: the opening match, France - New Zealand, on Friday September 8 (9 p.m.) then France-Uruguay, Thursday September 14 (9 p.m.) and finally France- Italy on Friday, October 6 (9 p.m.).

TF1 will also broadcast the two best quarter-finals (including that of France if it is qualified), the two semi-finals, the duel for third place and the final.
