BT Sport has renewed its contract with MotoGP to continue broadcasting in the UK and Ireland until at least 2024, marking 10 years of BT Sport coverage of MotoGP races.
Already in its seventh season as a broadcaster, BT Sport will continue to treat British and Irish MotoGP fans to the high-octane action of every Grand Prix on BT Sport, as riders including Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi, Fabio Quartararo and newly-crowned world champion Joan Mir compete on the world’s top racetracks.
From Malaysia to Silverstone, BT Sport’s comprehensive race coverage includes every practice, qualifying session and race for MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE, and innovations such as a 360º camera bike views, available on the BT Sport App.
Manel Arroyo, managing director at Dorna Sports, the commercial rights holder for MotoGP, commented: “BT Sport are one of our most important partners and we are delighted to see MotoGP remain with them until at least 2024, securing top quality coverage for the sport in one of our most important markets.
“After a thrilling but challenging 2020 season, we are proud to see this partnership confirmed to continue and mark a decade of collaboration. We would also like to thank BT Sport for their support in 2020 and look forward to at least another three seasons working together.”
Simon Green, managing director at BT Sport, added: “We are extremely proud to continue as the home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland. BT Sport has the best presentation team delivering the most comprehensive MotoGP coverage that UK fans have ever enjoyed, with every single practice, qualifying and race broadcast in full. I would also like to congratulate Dorna on safely and successfully completing the 2020 season, one of the most exciting we have seen, and thank them for collaborating with us to bring some great new programming to our audiences during last year’s lockdown.”
