Great news for sports fans as another dose of free sports is on its way to screens. 

Friday Night Footy will see 25 NRL matches shown live on Sky Open this season, seven of which being the Warriors, plus additional matches for Anzac Day, Magic Round, and State of Origin I. 

Super Saturday Rugby fans aren’t being left out either, with 19 Super Rugby Pacific matches airing, kicking off with the Highlanders v Moana Pasifika on February 24th. 

Sky CEO Sophie Moloney told ZB that they want to meet New Zealanders where they are, and this is a great way to share some premium sport. 

There is a total of 213 league matches in the season and 91 rugby matches, Moloney said, so the small number that’s being aired for free is unlikely to upset those paying for a subscription.
