NBC Sports Network To Air USA-Ireland

The Eagles upcoming match against Ireland at Red Bull Arena on June 10th will be aired on NBCSN and their online platform according to U.S.A. Rugby. The match will start at 5:00 p.m. et/2:00 p.m. pt. No word yet on who will air the Eagles-Georgia match the following week of the World Cup qualifying series against Canada. Apparently the Eagles-Ireland match is close to selling out.

“We are pleased to partner with NBC Sports Group on the live presentation of this match,” said Dan Payne in the release. "NBC's continued commitment toward providing rugby coverage in the United States is a very important partnership that contributes to the overall awareness of the game in our country, as is the return of the fourth-ranked nation of Ireland to our shores."

“We’re excited to add the Emirates Airline Summer Series to our growing portfolio of high-profile international rugby coverage,” said Gary Quinn, VP, Programming NBC Sports Group. “We’re proud to partner with USA Rugby and TLA Worldwide to present an international test match to a national audience on NBCSN for a fourth consecutive year, as the sport of rugby continues to expand its footprint in the United States.”
