Canada's TSN At Wimbledon Centre Court For Ten More Years
The TV sports channel will be the exclusive Canadian rights holder for the British tennis championships for another decade.
TORONTO – Following on ESPN’s new 12-year deal for the U.S. TV rights to the Wimbledon tennis tournament, Canadian sports channel The Sports Network has extended its own deai with the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for another ten years.
TSN did not unveil terms of the renewed deal, which will start with the 2012 Wimbledon tournament.
But as part of the new agreement, TSN will carry the two-week pro tennis championships from start to finish across a range of platforms, including online, mobile and radio, and will air live the final weekend of matches, including the women’s and men’s singles finals.
"TSN’s mandate has always been to bring the world’s best athletes and top sporting events to Canadians and we are thrilled to extend our partnership with the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and add the Wimbledon Finals to our slate of marquee championship events,” TSN president Stewart Johnston said in a statement.
