EBU extends Ski Flying Championships deal

The European Broadcasting Union, the consortium of public-service broadcasters, has extended a rights deal with the International Ski Federation for the Ski Flying Championships.

The deal will cover the 2018 and 2020 editions of the championships.

The EBU will also serve as the FIS’s service partner on various aspects of distribution, implementation, coordination and production, including live web streaming of both events and co-operation on new media initiatives.

The global audience for the most recent edition of the championships, in Vikersund, Norway in 2012, was 34-per-cent larger than for the 2010 edition in Planica, Slovenia.
