The Wimbledon tennis tournament will remain on the BBC for at least another eight years. The All England Club and the BBC have confirmed a four-year extension to their partnership, taking the deal up to 2024.
The alliance, which in 2017 celebrates 80 years of television and 90 years of radio, is the longest in sports broadcasting history.
Tony Hall, the BBC director general, commented: “Wimbledon is the pinnacle of the sport, and as such has a special place in the hearts of the nation. Our extended agreement ensures the Championships can continue to be enjoyed free-to-air by the widest possible audience.”
