eSkootr Championship Announes Fox Sports Australia Broadcast Agreement, Plus Eight Others
By Community | May 6, 2022
Coverage of the inaugural eSkootr Championship™ (eSC) will be shown on Fox Sports in Australia.
Fox Sports Australia will broadcast highlights of the first ever eSkootr Championship race from Printworks London on 13/14 May, as well as the five other races taking place in 2022 – including the Swiss city of Sion, followed by France, Italy, Spain and the USA.
The use of escooters is on the rise in Australia and eSC will be using its platform and the learnings from the racetrack to help promote micromobility in inner city areas. As well as showcasing the action through the 90-minute highlight show, viewers will receive analysis and commentary about the series, both on and off the track, from an expert on-screen presentation team. Fox Sports Australia will use eSC’s owned program, created by Canadian production company Boombox, which includes pre-race build-up, race commentary and post-race interviews, highlights and analysis.
Fox Sports Australia is the home of sport with more than 2.4 million sports subscribers across the Foxtel Group.
Sharon Fuller, Chief Content Officer at eSC, commented:
“There has been a lot of interest in the series from Australia and we are thrilled to be working with Fox Sports to bring all the action from our first season to TV screens across the country.
“eSC is a dynamic, tense and unpredictable new sport, and our production has been developed to ensure viewers are taken right into the heart of the action with creative camera angles and new broadcast technology, and we can’t wait to showcase this to TV fans across Australia at the first race next week in London.”
