Guide to Wheelchair Rugby Webcasts

There's good news and bad news for fans of wheelchair rugby trying to watch online. The good news is that with 780 hours of coverage, these Paralympics are the most webcast ones ever. The bad news, however, is that not every match will be webcast live. For those that aren't being webcast, the IWRF will try to fill in the gaps with social media coverage.


Please note:

  • This schedule does not include games shown on a delay. During the first day of competition, some games were posted several hours after the end of the match. We will post links to these games if they are shown.
  • Some games (notably in Australia) may be broadcast on television either live on delay. Be sure to check your local listings.

If a game is not webcast, please head over to either the IWRF's Facebook page or Twitter feed. We will liveblog games, providing updates as they happen. On Facebook, we will limit this to quarterly scores to avoid spamming our viewers, but on Twitter we will provide much more indepth coverage. Please note that you don't have to have an account on any of these sites to view the feed.
