Eurosport extends Tour de France broadcasting deal to 2023

July 21, 2017

Eurosport has sealed a new deal with the European Broadcasting Union and Amaury Sport Organisation that ensures cycling fans across Europe will be able to watch every minute of the Tour de France live on its channels for the next six years.

The four-year agreement will see Eurosport broadcast every single stage of 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 editions of the world’s most famous cycling race exclusively in 38 countries, with the first 75 minutes of action also exclusive in many of the remaining European markets.

The latest agreement extends 32-year long Eurosport’s association with the Tour de France.

Peter Hutton, Eurosport CEO, said: “We proudly claim to be the home of cycling and this new deal is further proof of that statement. We now have every minute of the Tour de France until 2023, meaning all the Grand Tours, the five Monuments and over 30 UCI World Tour events will be on Eurosport.”

The message for cycling fans is clear, Eurosport is the best place to follow the sport – we have every sprint, climb and break away from the biggest races covered on TV or on the go and on-demand via Eurosport Player.”

The new deal follows last month’s announcement that Eurosport had enhanced its current contract allowing fans in 54 European markets to benefit from up to 25 hours more live Tour de France coverage for the next three editions of ‘Le Tour’, including, for the first time, every minute live.

Hutton added: “The Tour de France remains the sport’s biggest event and we are delighted that the average viewing figures for this year’s Tour have increased, even when you consider we’ve delivered over 20 hours more live coverage compared to 2016.”

“We remain committed to looking at ways to improve the production of the sport, using more access to data to give a clearer explanation of the stories of each day.”
