Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD), the multinational media and entertainment giant, will continue to provide live coverage of motorcycling’s FIM Motocross World Championship (MXGP) for the next three seasons after renewing its rights agreement through 2025.
The deal, which also covers second-tier MX2 races, was brokered by the international sports marketing agency Infront through its Infront Moto Racing division.
Every race will be made available live and on-demand via WBD’s pan-European broadcaster Eurosport, as well as streaming platforms Eurosport app and Discovery+ across Europe and Asia.
Races will also be broadcast on Eurosport’s linear channels, with the annual national competition FIM Motocross of Nations to be aired on Eurosport 2 in Europe and Asia for the next three seasons.
Eurosport has covered MXGP and MX2 since 2018, with its latest deal with Infront expiring in 2022.
The 2023 MXGP season will begin with the grand prix in Argentina on March 12 and conclude with the Great Britain round on October 1.
The upcoming season will be shown free-to-air in Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands by public service broadcasters RTVE, Rai, and NOS, respectively, after the trio renewed their rights agreements with Infront Moto Racing last year.
In 2021, Eurovision Services, the media services arm of the European Broadcasting Union, extended its distribution agreement across the region until 2024.
