Eurosport has reached agreement to broadcast the US Open across Europe, excluding the UK and Ireland where Eurosport had historically sub-licensed the rights, for a further five years.
The new deal, which runs until 2022 and gives Eurosport exclusive rights to the tournament, underlines the broadcaster’s commitment to showcasing the very best in premium and live sporting content.
Eurosport CEO Peter Hutton said: “The US Open is always a special occasion, an invitation to the world to join a two-week party to conclude the story of the Grand Slam year. We are excited to extend our partnership with the USTA until 2022 and strengthen our position as the place for fans in Europe to follow every thrilling moment of Grand Slam action. The agreement maintains our focus on premium must-have content, delivering locally relevant coverage through dedicated country-specific production and talent.”
