MotoGP expands Viaplay broadcast deal with six-year Nordic renewal

Finland and Iceland added to existing deal with Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Dorna Sports, the rights holder of the MotoGP global motorcycling series, has expanded its broadcast agreement across the Nordic region with Viaplay Group.

Contract:

  • Six-year extension signed
  • Iceland and Finland added to Sweden, Norway and Denmark

Context: Viaplay will stream up to 400 live hours of the global motorcycle racing series in all five countries every year until 2028. This represents a similar deal to what Viaplay Group – then called Nordic Entertainment (Nent) Group – signed with Formula One in 2020.

Comment: Alex Arroyo, head of media rights at Dorna Sports, said: “We’re really happy to extend our agreement with Viaplay for another six seasons and to see our partnership extend from Sweden, Norway and Denmark to include Finland and Iceland. MotoGP enters a new era in 2023 as the MotoGP Sprint debuts at every event, and we have more races than ever with a 21-stop calendar.”

Coming next: The new season gets underway in Portugal on 26th March.
