Dorna Sports is delighted to announce Ziggo Sport as the new home of MotoGP™ in the Netherlands. A new three-year contract beginning in 2022 will see the channel broadcast all MotoGP™, Moto2™, Moto3™ and MotoE™ races and qualifying sessions, as well as practice sessions from each Grand Prix class, live and exclusively.
That therefore includes the Dutch TT at the legendary Cathedral of Speed – the TT Circuit Assen – which will be broadcast live on Ziggo Sport and Ziggo Sport Totaal to give fans the best coverage possible of their home Grand Prix. Ziggo Sport will also regularly cover MotoGP™ with studio broadcasts, as well as providing on-site reporting and commentary.
Will Moerer, Director of Ziggo Sport: "MotoGP is a great sport, and a package that many parties are interested in within the sports rights market. We’re therefore very happy that we’ve succeeded in acquiring these rights. Every race weekend brings spectacle, and because it’s always well covered, you, the television viewer, get to experience it all.
"Racing will continue to occupy a prominent place in Ziggo Sport's programming in the coming years, as well as on our 24-hour channel Ziggo Sport Racing as part of the Ziggo Sport Totaal package. With the Dutch contribution of Rinus van Kalmhout in IndyCar, champions Nyck de Vries and Robin Frijns in Formula E, and hopefully eventually the great Dutch talent Zonta van den Goorbergh in the MotoGP paddock joining Bo Bendsneyder, the motorsport fan will be well served by Ziggo Sport in the coming years."
Manel Arroyo, Chief Commercial Officer, Dorna Sports: "We are delighted to begin a new partnership in the Netherlands with Ziggo Sport. Ziggo Sport has fantastic experience in creating exciting, high quality motorsport broadcasts for viewers across the country and we are excited to see MotoGP join the network from 2022. The Netherlands is an important country to MotoGP and motorcycle racing, and hosts one of the world’s truly legendary racetracks: the TT Circuit Assen. We very much look forward to working with Ziggo Sport to bring audiences the best experience of our sport, as well as reaching new fans across the Netherlands as the spectacle on track only gets better."
