The deal between the BBC and Wimbledon is the longest partnership in sports broadcasting history.
The BBC and All England Club have announced a three-year extension to their broadcast partnership, giving the BBC the domestic rights to broadcast the Wimbledon tennis Grand Slam until at least 2027.
The deal between the BBC and Wimbledon is the longest partnership in sports broadcasting history and will clock up 85 years of TV broadcasting in 2022, and 100 years of radio in 2027.
Commenting on the new deal, All England Lawn Tennis Club commercial and media director, Mick Desmond, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have extended our historic partnership. The BBC is as synonymous with Wimbledon as strawberries and cream, and enables us to reach all corners of the UK through their outstanding production and network of platforms. We are really looking forward to taking this relationship from strength to strength, and celebrating 100 years together in 2027.”
Barbara Slater, Director of BBC Sport, said: “Wimbledon has a special place in the hearts of the nation and, with this extension, we can continue our longstanding and valued partnership with the All England Club. Wimbledon on the BBC will continue to bring the nation must-see sporting moments free-to-air captivating audiences of all ages.”
