RTVE, the Spanish public-service broadcaster, has secured rights in that country to the next two seasons of motorcycling’s FIM Motocross World Championship (MXGP).

The deal, which starts immediately and runs through to the end of the 2023 season, will involve RTVE covering all the races for the next two seasons – some live and some on-demand – on its Teledeporte linear sports channel.

In addition, all the action will be live-streamed on the RTVE Play digital platform to an online and mobile audience.

The deal has been struck by RTVE with Infront Moto Racing, the motorsport-specific division of the international sports marketing agency, and comes with the 2022 campaign already underway, as of February 20.

Last month, Italian public-service broadcaster Rai struck a similar deal with Infront Moto Racing, also for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

That deal extends the existing contract between the two parties, with the network having covered select MXGP action since 2016.

NOS, the Dutch public-service broadcaster, has also struck a two-year deal in recent months.

The 2022 MXGP season began with a race in the UK on February 20 and will conclude with an event in the US on September 25.

In October last year, Eurovision Services, the media services arm of the European Broadcasting Union, extended its distribution agreement for properties organized by Infront Moto Racing until 2024.

The deal means Eurovision Services will continue to manage the transmission of motocross events including the FIM Motocross World Championship, the FIM Motocross of Nations, the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship, the FIM Veteran’s Motocross World Cup, the FIM Junior Motocross World Championship, the FIM Snowcross World Championship, the FIM Europe Motocross Championship and the Motocross of European Nations.

The partnership between the two organizations dates back to 1997, with the Infront Moto Racing name having been taken on last year after Infront, the international sports marketing agency, acquired the agency as Youthstream in January 2019.
