By Community | April 8, 2022
Sky Sports has today announced an extension of its rights to show the Masters Tournament exclusively live in the UK and – starting with this week’s Tournament – Ireland.
The multi-year deal, made in partnership with Augusta National Golf Club, was first announced live on air on Thursday evening. The deal gives Sky the exclusive rights to the first, second, third and final rounds and play-offs (if applicable) at the iconic course.
The extension of the deal means Sky Sports remains the home of the Masters in the UK, and now Ireland too – giving golf fans access to the spectacular holes and sparkling greens of Augusta National. Customers will be able to tune into coverage from Amen Corner as well as Featured Groups and much more, including full highlights from each day’s play.
Sky EVP and CEO UK and Europe Stephen van Rooyen said: “We’re thrilled to be able to extend our partnership with Augusta National to continue to show this iconic Major Championship, meaning that Sky Sports continues to be the home of golf in the UK & Ireland.”
Sky will provide expansive coverage of this year’s Masters Tournament, including Amen Corner on YouTube as well as five other digital feeds available. Golf fans will have the best analysis on offer, including Sky Scope, Virtual Holes, Touchscreen, Zen Green and Shot Centre for Masters Breakfast – each giving expert insight into every piece of action on the course.
Sky Sports Golf is the home of golf in the UK and in 2022 will show all four men’s Majors, all five women’s Majors and both men’s and women’s tours – well over 100 tournaments in total. In addition, golf fans can tune in for round-the-clock coverage on Sky Sports News and Sky Sports’ social and digital platforms.
