World Rugby has today confirmed that all six matches in the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2021 Europe Qualifier will be live-streamed across Rugby World Cup website, Facebook, and Twitter channels, and on World Rugby’s YouTube channel.

Scotland’s three fixtures, against Italy, Spain, and then Ireland, will be shown live on BBC Alba, with broadcasters RTE Sport, RAI and RTVE taking the live feed in their respective markets on a non-exclusive basis for relevant matches.

The RWC 2021 Europe Qualifier will see hosts Italy, Spain, Ireland and Scotland play each other in a round-robin format across three match days, on 13, 19, and 25 September, at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi in Parma.

The winner will qualify as Europe 1 and join Canada and USA in Pool B at RWC 2021, playing in 2022, in New Zealand with the runner-up earning a further opportunity to qualify via the Final Qualification Tournament, with dates and location to be announced at a later stage.
