Six Nations Signs CVC Deal that will be Worth £365 million to the Unions

Is this good news for the unions in the Six Nations? This deal will be a massive cash boost for the rugby unions that most were in death before the global pandemic and are now even more in death due to Covid 19.

This deal will almost certainly mean that the future Six Nations Championships will go behind a pay per wall. So next years Six Nations you could be watching it on Amazon, BT Sport or even Sky Sports, very disappointing this for some. As not everyone will have access to those channels and rugby might lose the fans that wouldn’t always watch the Six Nations.

CVC will get a 1/7 share in the Six Nations and no doubt will be looking for a return in their rugby. CVC now have stakes in the English Premiership, Pro14 & Six Nations. It will be fascinating to see how they exert their influence.

A significant moment in rugby’s commercial development. Watch this space…
