The upcoming US Open tournament is scheduled to take place from August 28 to September 10.
BeIN Sports has announced the renewal of its exclusive media rights contract for the US Open Tennis Championships, solidifying its position as the exclusive home of the tournament in the MENA region until 2027. This extended partnership underscores BeIN’s commitment to advancing both men’s and women’s tennis across the region, as it continues to be the sole platform offering coverage of all four Grand Slam events.
The broadcaster, having held the exclusive rights to the US Open for over a decade, has been instrumental in nurturing a growing interest in tennis within the Middle East and North Africa. The new agreement, effective from 2023 to 2027 and featuring both Arabic and English language coverage, comes at a time when regional enthusiasm for tennis has arguably never been greater.
Commenting on the deal, Mohammad Al-Subaie, CEO of beIN MENA, said: “BeIN and the US Open have enjoyed a highly successful partnership over the past decade, bringing to the Middle East and North Africa some of the most memorable tennis matches of recent years. Interest in tennis is at an all-time high in this region and we are delighted to have the broadcast rights for five more years. Continuing to be the home of Grand Slam tennis gives us the chance to share more special sporting moments with our subscribers and we look forward to another exciting tournament later this month.”
Kirsten Corio, Chief Commercial Officer, USTA, added: “The US Open and beIN have together delivered spectacular tennis to fans in the Middle East and North Africa for many years, and we are so very pleased to continue our partnership. As the world’s best tennis players, including Ons Jabeur, compete on our Grand Slam stage, we look forward to continuing to expand the US Open audience throughout the region for many years to come.”
The upcoming US Open tournament, scheduled from August 28 to September 10, will be a focal point for the region. BeIN Sports will be the primary source for Tunisian Ons Jabeur’s journey as she aims to repeat her Wimbledon success and potentially reach successive finals at Flushing Meadows in her quest for a maiden Grand Slam title.
The men’s competition features World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz striving to achieve a rare back-to-back US Open title win, while Novak Djokovic, a three-time winner at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre, aims to secure his 24th Grand Slam title.
BeIN’s exclusive coverage will span from 18:00 MECCA time until the early morning of each match day. Arabic commentary will be available on beIN Sports 5 (Arthur Ashe Court) and beIN Sports 6 (Louis Armstrong Court), while English commentary will be offered on beIN Sports 7 (Grandstand Court). Notably, the best matches of each day will air in English on beIN Sports 2 English.
Complementing the live coverage, dedicated studios will feature BeIN’s tennis experts, providing analysis, commentary, result assessments, and behind-the-scenes highlights. Renowned tennis athletes like Adel Al Shatti, Karim Alami, Selima Sfar, and Anass Lamrani, alongside presenter Areej Sleem, will contribute expert insights. Additionally, BeIN will offer exclusive daily highlights shows, tournament reviews, and documentaries, featuring some of the biggest names in the world of tennis.
