Rugby League World Cup 2013 organisers have announced that the BBC and Premier Sports have secured rights to broadcast the tournament.

The BBC will bring live coverage of all England games to television and radio, starting with the Opening Ceremony which features arguably the biggest game in international Rugby League in England v Australia.

There will then be live coverage of England’s other two Group A games against Ireland and Fiji, as well as a quarter-final, semi-final showdown at Wembley and the Rugby League World Cup Final at Old Trafford on November 30. 

The BBC will also show regular highlights programmes on television throughout the tournament, which will incorporate all the action from matches not shown live, and there will be extensive coverage on Radio 5 live, 5 live sports extra, the BBC Sport website and the BBC Sport App.

Premier Sports have also further added to their Rugby League portfolio by acquiring rights to show every game live.

RLWC2013 Tournament Director, Nigel Wood said “This is fantastic news for RLWC2013. The BBC is arguably the number one terrestrial sports broadcaster in the world. Their incredible coverage of the London Olympics further enhanced their reputation and so for them to cover the next international sporting event in the UK is a great fit for them and for us.

“We’re delighted fans will be able to watch the showpiece events live on terrestrial TV. The BBC will help RLWC2013 bring new audiences to our amazing sport and will enable our established fan base to immerse themselves in five weeks of fantastic, world class sport.

“Premier Sports do a great job for Rugby League showing Kingstone Press Championship, every NRL game and the State of Origin matches. Their coverage will enable fans to see every minute of the tournament live.”

Rugby League World Cup 2013 kicks off on Saturday October 26 2013 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, with matches played in England, Wales, Ireland and France.

The competition's structure will consist of two groups of four and two groups of three.

England are drawn alongside arch-rivals Australia as well as Fiji and Ireland in Group A; Rugby League World Cup holders New Zealand will face Pacific Island rivals Papua New Guinea and Samoa along with France in Group B.

Scotland will face Tonga and Italy in Group C and joint hosts Wales have been drawn against the Cook Islands and the USA in Group D.
