BT Sport have confirmed that all Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches played behind closed doors in the upcoming 2020/21 season will be broadcast live.
BT Sport subscribers will be able to follow all six games each weekend live across its TV channels, award-winning App and btsport.com. Once crowds can safely return to stadia, BT Sport will revert to the usual broadcast schedule.
Through an agreement between Premiership Rugby and BT Sport, eligible club Season Ticket Holders will gain free access to home Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches on the BT Sport App up until Christmas (Round 4), when the provision will be reviewed.
The BT Sport Match Pass is designed for Season Ticket Holders of participating clubs who do not already have a BT Sport subscription, and who cannot attend their home matches due to the current restrictions.
Full instructions for how to download the BT Sport app and use Match Pass will be shared ahead of each game via email and the Northampton Saints website.
The brand-new Gallagher Premiership season starts this weekend as the men in Black, Green and Gold travel to Sale to take on the Sharks, with the clash (8pm kick-off) to be shown live on BT Sport Extra 1.
Viewers of matches produced by BT Sport and airing on BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3 or BT Sport ESPN will be able to watch with pre-recorded dynamic crowd noise.
BT Sport will also make selected games available in 4K via BT Sport Ultimate, as well as using its industry-leading remote production capabilities to comply with COVID-19 restrictions.
