The Foxtel Group today announced it will take viewers on the ultimate hi-octane ride with a first-of-its-kind exclusive multi-year deal that will see every MotoGP™ practice, qualifying and championship race to be shown live on Foxtel and Kayo from 2022 onwards.
In addition, the group announced a renewed agreement to show every race of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship live on Foxtel and Kayo from 2023.
These landmark deals confirm Foxtel Group as the home of motorsport with MotoGP and World Superbike (WorldSBK) re-joining Supercars and Formula 1 in the strongest line up of motorsports available anywhere to Australian fans across platforms.
Amanda Laing, Foxtel Group Chief Content and Commercial Officer, said: “With 2.4 million households now watching sport on Foxtel and Kayo, up 26% on last year, the Foxtel Group provides the largest audience of sports fans in the country.”
“MotoGP is fantastic entertainment and we have seen double-digit annual audience growth over the past six years. Kayo has turbo-charged this growth, attracting a new legion of fans.”
“The 2021 season is up 28% on last year and featured the record-breaking MotoGP Spanish GP, won by Australian Jack Miller and watched by almost 180,000 fans.”
“This exclusive multi-year deal sees us secure the free and paid rights with MotoGP and the exclusive renewal of our rights with World Superbike, cementing our unrivalled motorsport offering and again highlighting Foxtel and Kayo as the go-to destinations for sports fans in Australia.”
Manel Arroyo, Chief Commercial Officer, Dorna Sports, says: “For MotoGP it’s an honour. We are proud to extend, in a multi-year deal, our relationship and partnership with Fox Sports. Clearly to be with the home of motorsport in Australia at this moment, when new stars are arriving to the Championship in the main category, with Jack Miller now joined by Remy Gardner, makes us sure we’re going to deliver what the Fox Sports family needs and is expecting from MotoGP. We’re proud to be here because we have a challenge to develop new audiences together with Foxtel and Kayo. Thank you very much for your confidence in MotoGP.”
MotoGP audiences have grown rapidly as the thrilling feats of the best riders in the world are showcased, with Australia’s Jack Miller’s rise to challenge in the MotoGP World Championship, and Remy Gardner atop the Moto2 standings before he steps up to Moto GP in 2022.
Fox Sports is the only place fans can watch every race of MotoGP, WorldSBK, Supercars, Formula 1, World Rally Championship, NASCAR, INDYCAR, Formula E and more on FOXTEL and Kayo, the home of motorsport.
