Eurosport to be home of tennis in Russia following multi-year deal with ATP and ATP Media
ATP and ATP Media have announced that Eurosport will show 39 ATP Tour tournaments a season in Russia for three years starting this month.
The agreement, which includes nine ATP Masters 1000 events, 13 ATP 500 events and 15 ATP 250 events, the end-of-season Nitto ATP Finals tournament as well as the Next Gen ATP Finals, highlights Eurosport’s commitment to serving strong communities of passionate fans. An array of former stars will lead Eurosport’s coverage of ATP Tour events including Alexander Metreveli and former world number five Anna Chakvetadze.
Tennis fans across Russia can also keep up-to-date with all of the news making headlines on and off the court via the ATP Tour: Uncovered magazine show, ensuring every angle is covered on Eurosport’s linear, digital and OTT platforms throughout the season.
The new deal with the ATP and ATP Media strengthens Eurosport’s tennis offering in Russia with the broadcaster already showing all four Grand Slams – the Australian Open, Roland Garros, The Championships from Wimbledon and the US Open – exclusively across its platforms.
In October 2018, Eurosport announced it had signed a deal with the ATP and ATP Media that will see 37 ATP Tour events a year screened on Eurosport France platforms for five years, commencing 1 January 2019.
