The BBC and ATP have today announced an extension to their broadcast deal for the Nitto ATP Finals which will see the tournament broadcast live in 2019 and 2020.

The new agreement is for exclusive free-to-air TV rights for eight singles matches, including a semi-final and the final, and includes the right to stream these matches across the BBC’s online platforms, plus non-exclusive radio rights for the whole tournament.

The deal also includes non-exclusive radio rights to all ATP World Tour Masters 1000 matches.

BBC Director of Sport, Barbara Slater, said: “We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with ATP ensuring top class tennis continues to reach the widest possible audience on free to air TV, radio and our live streaming service.”

Chris Kermode, ATP Executive Chairman & President, added: “The BBC has provided a terrific platform for our season finale since we moved the tournament to London in 2009, giving millions of fans in the UK the opportunity to watch the very best in men’s professional tennis.

“We’re delighted to extend our partnership a further two years through to 2020.”
