THREE-SEASON SGP/SON DEAL FOR BT SPORT

BT Sport to broadcast FIM Speedway World Championships presented by Monster Energy until 2021.

09 / 04 / 2019, 12:00

BT Sport will remain the home of the FIM Speedway World Championships presented by Monster Energy in the UK and Ireland for the next three seasons.

The broadcaster will continue to show every round of the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series and Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations up to and including the 2021 season after reaching a new agreement with rights holders BSI Speedway – an IMG company.

BT Sport truly is the place to watch speedway in the UK and Ireland, with the broadcaster also holding exclusive rights to the SGB Premiership.

BSI Speedway managing director Torben Olsen is delighted to see BT Sport continue their involvement in the World Championships.

He said: “Extending our relationship with BT Sport is fantastic news for everyone connected with the SGP series and Monster Energy SON.

“Their coverage of the racing, presented by a true speedway fan in Natalie Quirk, continues to be first rate. With expert analysis from Scott Nicholls and commentary from Nigel Pearson and Kelvin Tatum, they have an excellent team that really brings viewers up close to the action.

“British fans will have enjoyed watching Tai Woffinden make history with his third world title win last season. And BT Sport will be across all the action as he goes for No.4 this year.”

The 2019 action will begin on Saturday, May 4 with Race Off 1 of the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations.
