LIV Rugby - Coming Soon?

Season 4, Episode 41,   May 15, 01:46 AM

On this week’s show we are joined by Mark Foster, a former Gloucester and Exeter Chiefs winger.  He is now Senior Vice President of Finance at LIV Golf - the tournament backed by one of the biggest sovereign wealth funds in the world.

Golf is one of many sports that has seen significant investment from Saudi Arabia. Rugby is yet to have a big bite of the cherry but it feels like it may be a case of ‘when, not if’ this happens.

So where is rugby in the queue? How desperately does it need a big cheque from somewhere? What could it look like? What are the implications? 

Season 4 is sponsored by Continental Tyres.
