Antonio Rimondi and Vittorio Munari are back in the commentary room and will follow the Italian franchises but not only
A few hours before the start of the 2022/23 season, the official announcement arrived on the fact that Discovery Sport will broadcast the next full version of the tournament with Zepre and Benetton. In each round of the game, a match involving one of the Italian subs will be broadcast live on Eurosport 2, while all other challenges will be available on the Discovery+ platform.
All Benetton Treviso and Zepri Parma matches, as well as the Cartel matches, will be commented on in Italian by Antonio Rimondi and Vittorio Munari, historical commentators for the Six Nations. The match with Benetton Treviso-Glasgow Warriors begins on Friday, September 16th at 6.30pm for the first live broadcast on Eurosport 2, so it should be noted that the Zebre-Leinster match will also be commented on by Raimondi-Munari but not only. In addition to the Lanfranchi match (which kicks off at 2:00pm on Saturday 17th), the South African derby between the Lions and the Bulls will also be broadcast in Italian. These two games, as well as all the other games from the first round, will be shown on Discovery+.
Luca Stacul, Sporting Director of Warner Bros. Discovery Italia: “The great rugby return to Eurosport and we are proud to broadcast an international competition for top-tier clubs that has grown over the years thanks to the participation of the best South African teams and the pride of the Italian football’s growing passion for rugby thanks to the participation of Benetton Treviso. And Zebri Parma, our national team reserve. It will be an amazing release to try out live on Discovery+.”
FIR President Marzio Innocenti: “Benetton and Zipper are ready to take to the field for an exciting new season of BKT United Rugby Championship and raise their fighting standard in a season that will see the best rugby players compete for a place in the 2023 World Cup. We are delighted to see both Italian teams among the best clubs in the world. And that we can follow them on any device thanks to the unprecedented coverage of the tournament with the guarantee of Eurosport.”
Martin Anayi, CEO of Rugby United: “Recognizing the largest following in Italy for Rugby United, fans will have access to all 151 matches via Discover+ and Eurosport. We have great ambitions for growth in the coming years for both the market and the Italian teams participating in the United Rugby Championship, encouraged by the sporting results of the Italy U-20 which is based on young talents between Benetton Treviso and Zepri Parma.”
