BeIN Sports, the international pay-TV sports broadcaster, has renewed its exclusive rights deal for the Wimbledon grand slam tennis tournament in France until 2028.

Through the five-year extension, struck with the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), the Qatar-owned network retains a contract it has held since 2014.

This year’s edition will see BeIN provide full coverage of Wimbledon for a 10th straight year. The broadcaster will provide coverage across two dedicated channels, including one ‘multicourt’ channel.

In addition, BeIN will air a daily show to recap the action from each day of the tournament.

Wimbledon will this year run from July 1 to July 14.

Yousef Al-Obaidly, president of BeIN Sports France and group chief executive of BeIN Media Group, said: “This is fantastic news for our subscribers, with Wimbledon being the centerpiece of our international tennis offering.
