The Future for the PRO14 - Part 6 - Pay TV, More SA Makes Sweet 16

Post by Pot Hale on Sat 07 Jul 2018, 4:10 pm

First topic message reminder :

A new thread to continue the tracking of where the multi-country Championship is heading.

With the TV deals done for Ireland, UK, Italy and South Africa, PRO14 quietly announced their deal for tapping other broadcast markets around the world with rights partner, RDA, who already have the Heineken Cup and English Premiership in their stable.  

Here’s extract from what the PRO14 press release said:  

Guinness PRO14 is the first rugby union championship to host clubs from the traditional rugby powers in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, with teams from South Africa competing against the top sides from Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy.....

....RDA’s focus will be on growing revenues in core markets as well as increasing the Guinness PRO14’s global footprint. Current media agreements in host markets secured by PRO14 include eir sport in Ireland, Premier Sports in the UK and Super Sport in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Martin Anayi, CEO, Guinness PRO14 commented: “It’s an incredible time in the Guinness PRO14 with our expansion into South Africa, the success of our clubs in Europe and the confirmation of our new broadcast partners in Ireland and the UK. Every season the biggest names in world rugby take to the pitch in our Championship guided by some of the sharpest minds in the game providing imaginative, high-intensity match-ups which make for compulsive viewing.

“The Guinness PRO14 is one of the most talked about rugby properties in the world right now and it’s the perfect time to join forces with RDA who have a track record of success when it comes to sports media rights. With brands such as Premiership Rugby, Champions Cup and European Challenge Cup in their portfolio we can ensure that rugby fans will feel a part of the Guinness PRO14 action no matter where they are.”

...,Richard Dennis, CEO, RDA commented: “The Guinness PRO14 is an action-packed tournament. With a global-playing base of 300 players capped at full international level, and 100 top players from countries such as New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the Pacific Islands, PRO14 will have a worldwide appeal to rugby fans. It also boasts some impressive stats, 1.3 million attendees last season and games averaging 5.9 tries, so it’s no surprise scoring has risen for the fifth year in a row. We’re very much excited to be working with the Guinness PRO14.”

RDA adds the Guinness PRO14 to a strong rugby portfolio covering the newly sponsored Champions Cup, European Challenge Cup, Premiership Rugby, Betfred Super League and the RFL International Test Series.

Anayi in another pre-season general interview said that PRO16 would be the ideal size for the Championship that would allow less regular season games to be played and avoid test windows. It’s likely the final two spots would go to two more SA teams - likely from Super Rugby before the start of its new Sanzaar TV contract in 2020.

Anayi also mentioned that they were bringing in a new programme to allow them employ professional referees directly on their elite refs panel.

So after calling me names because you struggle with the English language you fail to retract your comment or apologise?

I'm splitting no hairs as difference between the two events are important. Concerts the like of which Irish mentioned are high demand, high grossing events that would likely earn more money for somewhere like the Principality than the Pro14 final. Monster Trucks though would not be in the same bracket especially as said event saw the stadium not even half full.

So are you going to apologise for or retract your pathetic name calling?

That the Monster Trucks event wasn't a high grossing, high turnout affair.

How come you haven't provided a source to back up that the trucks were there in May? Why haven't you asked IL for a source to backup that Ed or Taylor would gross more than the Pro14?

Maybe take a look at a few pics of the event and tell me how exactly it would be in the same bracket as Ed or Taylor

Then you can answer my question as to why you didn't ask IL to provide a source for his comment

I'm also still waiting on your retraction and/or apology

Munkain - there's absolutely no need to add on personal insults at the end of posts

No idea why you are being so aggressive, why can't you deal with the points on their merits? Why call me an absolute helmet and why not apologise when it was by your own failing to grasp the point?

Now you've claimed

comparatively they can get more for non rugby related events.

Would you care to provide a source for this claim?

Have you looked at the pictures of the Monster Jam event?

More a simile to describe your posting style than a name. But ok, Wasp it is.

So have you nothing to actually contribute other than abuse like munkian?

I don't see you critiquing his abusive posting style, I wonder why that is

It’s because he gets pulled up by the mods, but when I report your name calling posts you get away scot-free. You’re like Teflon.

I didn’t say you called HIM names, so it is you making things up. Perhaps it is you who struggles with the English language?

The likes of marty and Bambam must have something on the MODS on this forum. They get away with murder on here.

It's one of the reasons I do not post much on here anymore.

It has been a long time since any rugby has been discussed on this thread - this seams to be a topic that people apparently can't discuss in a civil manner based on the number of similar threads that have gone downhill quickly. As such I'm going to lock another thread.

It is worth reminding that not all moderating is done in public - bans and warnings have already been handed out to the worst offenders involved. If this continues bans will be made longer and - if necessary - permanent.

it is quite embarrassing really that grown adults (I'm assuming) can't discuss this kind of thing without resorting to bickering.
