EBU extends European Athletics rights deal

The European Athletics governing body has renewed a worldwide media-rights partnership with the European Broadcasting Union consortium of free-to-air broadcasters.

The new deal will run for four years, from 2016 to 2019.

It comprises television and radio rights for the Amsterdam 2016 and Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships, the Belgrade 2017 European Athletics Indoor Championships and the yet-to-be awarded 2019 indoor championships. The deal also covers the European Athletics Team Championships and European Cross Country Championships.

The EBU has been a partner of the governing body since 1981.
