BT Sport has announced an extension of its contract with Dorna Sports to carry the MotoGP.
The deal will see the broadcaster continue to be the exclusive broadcaster of the motorsports competition, along with the Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE in the UK and Ireland until at least the end of 2024. The new agreement will provide 20 hours of coverage each weekend, including live races, practices and qualifying sessions.
Dorna noted that the extension will see BT Sport be the home of MotoGP in the UK for a decade, with the pair reaching their first deal in 2014.
Simon Green, managing director at BT Sport, said: “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.”
Manel Arroyo, Managing Director at Dorna Sports: “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. Fans in the UK and Ireland couldn’t ask for more.
“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 four seasons working together.”
