    Ziggo Sport acquires exclusive broadcasting rights to MotoGP™

    31 augustus 2021

    Ziggo Sport has acquired the rights for the next three seasons of the MotoGP. From the start of the new season in March 2022, the channel will exclusively broadcast all MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 practices, qualifying sessions and races live. The motorbike fan will be able to enjoy hours of entertainment on Ziggo Sport during the race weekend. MotoGP starts with free practice on Friday. Qualifying is on Saturday followed by the race on Sunday. Every race weekend is shown live on Ziggo Sport and Ziggo Sport Totaal, including the Assen TT. Ziggo Sport will also regularly cover MotoGP with studio broadcasts and provide live on-site reporting and commentary.

    Lots of racing on Ziggo Sport
    Ziggo Sport recently announced that the broadcasting rights for NASCAR have been extended for several years. This is on top of the renewed broadcasting rights for the IndyCar series and Formula E. Besides NASCAR, the IndyCar series, and Formula E, Ziggo Sport will also continue to broadcast the W-Series, DTM, Supercars, WRC and more.

    Will Moerer, Director of Ziggo Sport: "MotoGP is a great sport, and a package that many parties are interested in within the sports rights market. We’re therefore very happy that we’ve succeeded in acquiring these rights. Every race weekend brings spectacle, and because it’s always well covered, the television viewer gets to experience it all. Racing will continue to occupy a prominent place in Ziggo Sport's programming in the coming years, as well as on our 24-hour channel Ziggo Sport Racing as part of the Ziggo Sport Totaal package. With the Dutch contribution of Rinus van Kalmhout in IndyCar, world champions Nyck de Vries and Robin Frijns in Formula E, and hopefully eventually the great Dutch talent Zonta van den Goorbergh in the MotoGP paddock joining Bo Bendsneyder, the motorsport fan will be well served by Ziggo Sport in the coming years."

    Manel Arroyo, Chief Commercial Officer, Dorna Sports: “We are delighted to begin a new partnership in the Netherlands with Ziggo Sport. Ziggo Sport has fantastic experience in creating exciting, high quality racing broadcasts for viewers across the country and we are excited to see MotoGP join the network from 2022. The Netherlands is an important country to MotoGP and motorcycle racing, and hosts one of the world’s truly legendary racetracks: the TT Circuit Assen. We very much look forward to working with Ziggo Sport to bring audiences the best experience of our sport, as well as reaching new fans across the Netherlands as the spectacle on track only gets better.”
