This weekend sees the start of the European Champions and Challenge Cups, and ESPN 3 will again be carrying the competition. Unfortunately, each match won't be made available. Instead, it appears there will be a small selection of matches each round. In the opening round, we get two Champions matches and one Challenge game. 

The Americas Pacific Challenge will continue on The Rugby Channel, with the USA playing Wednesday and Sunday. There are also two college matches being streamed by the OTT channels, with Iona vs. Army being played on ESPN 3 and Dartmouth vs. Navy being shown on The Rugby Channel. 

With European action the next two weeks, the club offerings by NBC Gold and the The Rugby Channel will be on hiatus until the Premiership starts back up. In the coming weeks, look for Mitre 10 and Currie Cup matches on ESPN 3, as well. 

If your team is streaming a match, email [email protected] to get it on our weekly schedule!
