The Sky Super Rugby Aotearoa 21 matches, including a final match, which will happen on Saturday, 8 May 2021, will be live and select by a new tournament naming rights sponsor Sky.
The 2021 season will base on the excitement of the first edition of Super Rugby Aotearoa, said NZR General Manager Professional Rugby & Performance Chris Lendrum.
Last year we had seen the exciting format of this home and away game. Now all five teams know what it takes to play and win each week. As the All Blacks locked the first round of the game, the opening whistle will set off fireworks.
"After a year of uncertainty, it is incredible to provide fans, players, and partners with a certain level of safety." The confirmation of the 2021 draw is an important milestone and a positive step for New Zealand rugby. We are happy that our broadcasting partner Sky join as a title sponsor. Lendrum said: "We listened to the opinions of the fans and our players, and added what we thought was the climax of the final."
Each team will play for two home matches and two byes. The final will play between the first two qualified teams on Saturday, May 8. Mike Anthony, head of NZR's high performance, confirmed that the first round will provide an All-Black team. Check the full 2021 Super rugby Aotearoa schedule below:
