BBC signs wide-ranging British Gymnastics deal

The British Gymnastics national governing body has signed a landmark rights deal with UK public-service broadcaster the BBC.

The three-year agreement grants BBC Sport exclusive and terrestrial broadcast rights to this month’s Gymnastics World Cup, which will be shown live on television and online.

The deal also includes non-exclusive live-streaming rights to the Artistic, Rhythmic, Aerobics and Acrobatics Gymnastics British Championships, as well as the Trampoline Tumbling & Double Mini Trampoline British Championships.

The Artistic British Championships have been broadcast on the BBC in the past, but the deal marks a landmark agreement for the wider disciplines.

Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, said: “This new deal strengthens our year-round commitment to gymnastics and is a perfect fit for our market-leading, free-to-air, sports streaming service.”

This year’s Gymnastics World Cup takes place at Arena Birmingham on March 21-22. The event will feature 18 gymnasts from eight nations, including the Great Britain team of Amy Tinkler (pictured), Alice Kinsella, James Hall and Dominick Cunningham.
