MotoGP extends agreement with Ziggo Sport until 2029

June 26, 2024

MotoGP has extended its agreement with Ziggo Sport for a further five seasons. The Dutch broadcaster will continue to bring fans across the Netherlands exclusive, live coverage of the world’s most exciting sport, including all practices, qualifying sessions, the Tissot Sprint and Grand Prix races.

The new agreement will see fans continue to enjoy live coverage of MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™, as well the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship. Ziggo Sport also offers pre- and post-race analysis from their expert panel of commentators, giving fans unrivalled insight into the action, and exclusive rider and team interviews.

Audiences on Ziggo Sport have been impressive in 2024, with increases on 2023 seen across the board. That’s as MotoGP™ continues to enjoy its closest season of all time, with the average winning gap hovering around a second over the first seven Grands Prix – the lowest in history. In addition, Dutch rider Collin Veijer (Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP) is making waves in the Moto3™ class, already a two-time winner as he fights for the crown.

Marcel Beerthuizen, director of Ziggo Sport, said: “The interest in MotoGP in the Netherlands is growing enormously, partly thanks to the spectacular races full of overtakes and different winners, and of course due to the success of Collin Veijer in Moto3. Ziggo Sport is committed to further growing this sport and allowing all motorsport fans in the Netherlands to enjoy the successes of our national heroes.”

Dan Rossomondo, CCO of MotoGP rights holder Dorna Sports, said: “Ziggo Sport has proven to be a great ambassador for MotoGP in the Netherlands over the past three years. Together, we continue to promote the world’s most exciting sport in the country and we can see that clearly paying off in 2024 as audiences soar. With Ziggo Sport, we have a forward-thinking partner with extensive knowledge and expertise, offering top quality MotoGP content on the various Ziggo Sport platforms. We’re very happy to continue working together.”

MotoGP™ now heads for the TT Circuit Assen for the 75th edition of the iconic Dutch TT, just as MotoGP™ celebrates our 75th anniversary. More history is sure to be made this weekend, so tune in for the Motul TT Assen as MotoGP™ arrives at the Cathedral.
