CBC extends show jumping rights deal

The CBC Sports division of Canadian public-service broadcaster CBC has agreed a deal to continue showing live coverage of major show jumping events at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Canada.

The extended agreement will run for three years, until 2020, and will include coverage of the National, the North American and the Masters.

The three events form part of the Grand Slam of Show Jumping.

CBC Sports will also continue to provide broadcast and live-streaming coverage of the CHIO Aachen, CHI Geneva and The Dutch Masters, all of which are other Grand Slam of Show Jumping events that take place elsewhere.

CBC Sports has been an official broadcast partner of Spruce Meadows for past 25 years.
