The Wynn Network, an Arizona based on demand streaming platform, is partnering with Sarlat Rugby to present rugby, one of the fastest growing sports worldwide. Sarlat Rugby will post live game coverage, as well as training, teaching, and other video content into the hands and screens of millions of soon-to-be rugby fans.
Rugby content will be available 24/7 with the goal to reach larger audiences and share the intense emotions and rich culture surrounding the sport. The Wynn Network is available on platforms like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and of course iOS and Android devices and will broadcast the sport to over 100,000 servers.
“We are excited to expand our network’s sports content and share the exhilaration and growth of rugby” said Dr. John Wynn CEO of The Wynn Network. “Our goal is to share the stories that matter to people across the globe and promote people’s passions. We are honored to have a role in the increased popularity of rugby and to be able to introduce greater audiences to the sport.”
“When I got the call from Sarlat Rugby's President, Dom Einhorn, to come play for the team, I did not hesitate one second,” says veteran inside center, Hemani Paea, former Pro D2 league MVP. “I packed my bags along with my family and moved to Sarlat a few days later. I have never played for a more exciting team, with a deep squad, amazing leadership and exciting ambitions.”
“Our agreement with Wynn Network marks a key turning point in Sarlat Rugby’s history,” said Dom Einhorn, president of Sarlat Rugby. “Literally overnight, the Sarlat Rugby brand (along with the city of Sarlat) will become household names to potentially millions of North American households via a wide array of devices and a growing network of content distributors. We expect the magnitude of this exposure to have a lasting impact on our team and community.”

About Sarlat Rugby
Sarlat Rugby, initially the Sarlat Athletic Club, dates back to 1903. For over a hundred years, rugby was a weekly rallying point for the Sarlat community, and an unmissable event for the fans. The pitch at Madrazès, home of the oval ball in Sarlat, fielded generation after generation of rugby players. Locals and recruits alike were driven for years by the same desire: to wear the black and blue of our salamander with pride. Sarlat’s colors have been worn by players whose names remain etched in local rugby history, such as the one who lent his name, and fame, to the stadium: Christian Goumondie.
