Indonesian broadcasters Vidio, Champions TV, and Moji have acquired rights to motorcycling’s Motocross World Championship (MXGP) until 2025.
The agreement was brokered by the international sports marketing agency Infront through its Infront Moto Racing division.
Infront Moto Racing holds exclusive television, marketing, and global promotional rights to MXGP in a long-term deal with the FIM, the international motorcycling federation, until 2036.
The three-year deal with the channels, which are part of Indonesia Entertainment Group (IEG), will include live broadcasts of the remainder of the 2023 MXGP season, as well as the 2024 and 2025 campaigns. The channels will also air delayed coverage and the new Behind The Gate series.
The broadcast partnership has been agreed ahead of this weekend’s MXGP race in Sumbawa, Indonesia (June 25). Another race in the country will also take place on July 2 in Lombok. These will mark the first-ever MXGP events in Indonesia.
MXGP has a significant following in the market, particularly on digital platforms. There is also local interest in Indonesian rider Delvintor Alfarizi who is competing in the MX2 class.
The 2023 season, which began on March 12 in Argentina, will conclude with a race in the UK on October 1.
Last month, Infront Moto Racing extended a commercial tie-up covering MXGP with tire manufacturer Dunlop in a three-year renewal.
