Israel Folau has been named as Foxtel’s Rugby Ambassador.
The announcement comes just weeks before Folau is set to take on some of the world’s greatest rugby players in the 2015 Bledisloe Cupa nd the Rugby Championships, which will air live and with no ad-breaks on Fox Sports, from Saturday 8 August at 8pm.
As the first player in history to have cracked all three of Australia’s major football codes, Israel Folau is no stranger to action on the field and knows what it takes to not just win, but win with style. He is featured in the August issue of Foxtel Magazine where he shares how his eight-year career trajectory has seen him arrive at the pinnacle of world rugby, playing for the Wallabies.
Folau will bring his considerable talent to bear in a series of new marketing and promotional campaigns for Foxtel that highlight the company’s sports leadership in bringing subscribers the best possible sports experience including every game of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, airing live and with no ad-breaks during play starting 5:00am 19 September (AEDT) when England faces off against Fiji. Fox Sports will also feature a dedicated channel devoted to the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
“I’ve been very fortunate to experience a lot of different things in my career so far, but away from the field I’m also a huge sports fan, and no one does it better than Foxtel when it comes to bringing the best in sporting action into Aussie living rooms. That’s why I’m thrilled to join the Foxtel team, to help show everyone what real sports coverage is all about,” said Israel Folau. “With so many great games on the horizon, including the Rugby World Cup, if you have Foxtel you are in for a real show in the coming months.”
