September 14, 2017
Eurosport has announced a new four-year deal with the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
The agreement, which runs from 2017 until 2020, will see Eurosport broadcast every major UCI event exclusively in 36 countries and territories in Europe across all disciplines, including the UCI Road World Championships, UCI Track Cycling World Championships and the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships.
Eurosport CEO Peter Hutton said: “We’re thrilled to be able to bring even more world-class cycling action to millions of passionate fans on Eurosport. Eurosport remains the place to be to watch their heroes in action – whether it be on TV, streaming or on-demand via the Eurosport Player. After a four-year absence from Eurosport screens, we are delighted to have reached an agreement with the UCI for the next four-year cycle. Along with our enhanced production of events such as the Tour de France, we can continue to claim the mantle of the Home of Cycling.”
