  • EBU acquires rights to 2022 and 2024 Ski Flying World Championships for €3m
  • This is about 12% more than the €3.4m it paid for rights for 2018 and 2020
  • The EBU paid €2.5m for 2010 and 2012, and €3m for 2014 and 2016
The European Broadcasting Union will pay about 12 per cent more for global media rights to the 2022 and 2024 Ski Flying World Championships than it did for the 2018 and 2020 championships.

The EBU – the consortium of Europe’s public-service broadcasters – struck the deal earlier this month with the Fédération Internationale de Ski, skiing’s global governing body.
