T.V. Picks confirmed for Aviva Premiership opening rounds

13 July 2012

Following on from the announcement of the 2012/13 Aviva Premiership fixtures last week, we can now confirm the games in Rounds One to Eight that have been selected for television broadcasting.

Bath's opening game at the Recreation Ground on Saturday 8th September against London Wasps will be broadcast by ESPN, with the kick-off staying at our preferred 14.15 kick-off.

They will return to the Rec the following week to show the game against Northampton Saints, which will now take place on Friday 14th September, kick-off 19.45, and Sky Sports will be showing the derby game against Exeter Chiefs on Saturday 27th October, kick-off 14.30

The away trip to the old enemy Gloucester Rugby on Saturday 6th October will also be shown on ESPN, kicking off at 14.15.

Bath Rugby are aware that our Supporters favour a traditional Saturday afternoon kick off time and we will do what we can to achieve this. This is not always possible due to television coverage however we will continue to do what we can to ensure the majority of our home games are played on a Saturday afternoon.
