CNN International will launch CNN’S World Rugby and Supercharged on Rugby and Formula E. The two programmes will extend the network’s wide range of premium sports coverage.

CNN’S World Rugby takes viewers on a global journey through all aspects of the sport. As Rugby Sevens prepares for its Olympics debut in Brazil in August, presenters Alex Thomas and Christina Macfarlane follow the contenders throughout the Sevens World Series during a series of fast-paced tournaments in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the U.S., Hong Kong, Singapore, France and England.

Supercharged brings a brand new sport to CNN International – the FIA Formula E Championship – the primary all-electric motorsport series and one of the most exciting new sports in the world. Fronted by tech and motorsport presenter Nicki Shields in her first role for CNN, the show will travel to some of the most glamorous cities in the world to get close to the action in the race-day paddock.
