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.”
The rights were previously held by Eurosport.
