Telefónica has secured exclusive rights for the Davis Cup in Spain.
Footballer Gerard Piqué’ s Kosmos Group facilitated the agreement which will see Movistar+ exclusively broadcast the Final Phase of the Davis Cup.
Gerard Piqué , president of the Kosmos Group said: “It is a historic competition. With 119 years of history. A few years ago, watching the tennis scene, we saw more and more that there were fewer players participating. The calendar was very hard for them. Participate in 4 weeks disconnected between them and with change of surface, with risk of injury, and with very long trips, it was not the best.
“The change of format is to achieve your participation. We are convinced that all those who are classified will participate. The fact that it is a reduced format of a week will help attract the great players. The competition deserves it.”
