Today we announce that we will continue to deepen our relationship with the NRL by extending our partnership to include women’s rugby league and the NRLW Premiership, bringing fans more elite women’s action through to 2022.
The agreement furthers our commitment to provide greater opportunities, exposure and investment into the programs currently in place for women and young girls wishing to pursue a rugby league career.
We believe strongly in contributing to the participation, growth and professionalism of women’s sport and women’s’ rugby league in Australia.
We are very excited to contribute to the growth and professionalism of women’s rugby league in Australia. As a long-time partner of the NRL, we support every effort to make the game as inclusive and diverse as possible, and to provide a platform for aspiring female athletes to realise their dream.
Young players can’t be what they can’t see, so it was vital for our partnership that we were able to bring the Women’s State of Origin and NRLW premiership to fans, streamed live, fast and data-free with the Telstra Live Pass and official NRL app.
The second NRLW season will see defending Premiers Brisbane face off against St. George-Illawarra Dragons, Sydney Roosters, and the NZ Warriors, during the finals series of the NRL in September, but fans keen to see some of the action can enjoy the Women’s State of Origin fixture on 21 June from North Sydney Oval.
We’re proud to partner with the NRLW to bring this incredible sport to more fans all over the country.
