Eurovision has been named as the host broadcaster for the 2015 Alpine World Ski championships following a deal with the local organizing committee in Vail/Beaver Creek.
Eurovision Production Coordination, the EBU’s production company, will build a new broadcast installation to provide an international signal in HD from all events.
The EBU already holds separate agreements for the worldwide media rights and the marketing rights to the Alpine World Ski championships.
EBU director, sports and business, Stefan Kuerten said: “We’re very happy to be the host broadcaster for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, as it’s a win-win for all involved in the sport of skiing. After our successful production of the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Moscow this year, we will deliver another top quality production that will be seen by a worldwide audience.”
