The Rugby Football Union (RFU) today (Friday) announced the launch of its rugby union programme app for fans before Sunday’s England RBS 6 Nations match against Italy.
An edited and more interactive version of the match day programme, the app will feature exclusive articles by leading rugby writers and behind the scenes video from inside the England camp. It will be available to download two days prior to all future RBS 6 Nations matches and QBE Internationals at Twickenham Stadium.
RFU Chief Commercial Officer, Sophie Goldschmidt said, “This app will bring fans closer to the action, extend the reach of our very popular match day programme and provide an additional service for England Rugby fans around the world. We want to ensure our content is available for our supporters to access in the most convenient way – for many this is now on mobile devices and tablets.”
The app and the RFU’s match programmes are published by the PPL Group and hard copies can also be ordered before the match and mailed to supporters at home for match day by visiting pplsport.com or freephone 0808 1007377.
The programme is available through the iTunes store at a reasonable £2:99p, while the full 90-page hard copy programme sells at £6 + postage.
