Gallagher Premiership live stream: How to watch matches online from anywhere

The 2021-22 Gallagher Premiership runs from Friday 17 September to Saturday 18 June, when the final takes place at Twickenham.

This season there are 13 teams in the English top flight, with Saracens securing promotion from the RFU Championship but no Premiership team dropped down due to Covid-19. The impact of the pandemic has also meant that there will be no relegation until at least 2024.

How to watch the Gallagher Premiership from outside your country

If you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.

VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Premiership live stream you would at home.

Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.

Plus, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can try it out for a month for free or sign up for an annual plan and get three months free.
