Chiefs clash set for Channel 5 broadcast

Bristol Bears’ round 16 Gallagher Premiership clash with Exeter Chiefs at Ashton Gate will be broadcast live on Channel 5 and BT Sport on Saturday, April 11th.

The Easter Weekend clash sees Pat Lam’s men welcome the current league leaders Exeter to BS3 (3pm KO). Bristol got the best of their South West rivals early on in the season and the Chiefs will be looking to exact revenge for their narrow home defeat in November 2019.

Live rugby returns to Channel 5 as the broadcaster and Premiership Rugby confirm the Rounds 15, 16, 17 and 18 fixtures.

Caj Sohal, Head of Sport for Channel 5, said: “We’re bringing another four fantastic matches to fans as this close season continues to excite every round. All the matches are must-see fixtures and it is particularly exciting to be broadcasting Premiership Rugby’s first trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as well as covering a fan favourite with The Clash at Twickenham.”

Mark Brittain, Chief Commercial Officer of Premiership Rugby, said: “The next rounds of Gallagher Premiership Rugby to be broadcast on Channel 5 are four must-see fixtures that will showcase not only the battle for the top of the table but our 39th Premiership Rugby venue in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Our last fixture on Channel 5 – Big Game 12 in December when Harlequins faced Leicester – drew an audience of over half a million viewers and we expect these matches to prove equally popular with fans.”

All four matches will be broadcast live on Channel 5 and BT Sport. David Flatman and Mark Durden-Smith present weekly highlights every Monday on Channel 5.
