How to Watch Olympics Women’s Rugby in USA

Women's rugby olympics watch

Getty Sarah Hirini will lead New Zealand in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

It should be a competitive battle amongst several powerhouse countries when the Olympics women’s rugby sevens event kicks off in Tokyo.

In the United States, most of the women’s rugby sevens Olympic tournament will be televised live across NBCSN, USA and CNBC, but not every match will be on TV, and some may be tape delayed or share coverage with other sports.

Fortunately, you can also watch every match of the tournament live or on-demand via NBCOlympics.com or the NBC Sports app.

You’ll need to log-in to a cable provider to watch through the NBC digital platforms, so if you don’t have cable or don’t have a cable log-in, here are some different ways you can still watch a live stream of every Olympics women’s rugby sevens match online:
