By Taruka Srivastav | April 9, 2019
The FIM Speedway World Championships has extended its broadcast agreement with BT Sport in the UK and Ireland in a three-year deal
As part of the agreement with the series rights holder, BSI Speedway (an IMG company), BT Sport 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.
The 2019 season will begin from Saturday 4 May with Race Off 1 of the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations.
BSI Speedway Managing Director Torben Olsen 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.”
