RTL resumes broadcasting UCI Track Champions League

October 31, 2022

The UCI Track Champions League has confirmed that RTL – the largest commercial broadcaster in the Netherlands – will return to offer live coverage of the 2022 season. RTL joins a host of international broadcast partners that are being announced before the second UCI Track Champions League campaign commences in Mallorca on November 12th. The agreement was reached with Discovery Sports Events, who are global promoters of the UCI Track Champions League and part of Warner Bros. Discovery. RTL will broadcast all five rounds on RTL 7, and on the Dutch network’s Videoland streaming service. Last season the UCI Track Champions League reached 149 million viewers in 206 countries, with over 62 hours of programming, fulfilling its ambition of putting track cycling on the global stage and attracting a new, international audience. 
Peter van der Vorst, RTL’s Chief Content Officer, said: “We are delighted to be screening the UCI Champions League for a second successive season. Its short, dynamic and attractive racing format fits our strategy of building new sports in the Dutch territory.” François Ribeiro, Head of Discovery Sports Events, said: “We are thrilled RTL is returning to provide live coverage of the second season of the UCI Track Champions League. The Netherlands is a key market for us and this agreement with RTL will ensure the series is not only delivered to the country’s dedicated track cycling fans, but also to new fans who’ll be watching the sport for the very first time.”
