Hockey Canada has announced a long-term media-rights agreement with Canadian broadcasters TSN and RDS which extends through the 2033-34 season, continuing their long-standing partnership that dates back to 1991.
The extension ensures that TSN and RDS will continue to hold the exclusive, multi-platform media rights to Hockey Canada events. These include the IIHF World Junior Championship, IIHF Women’s World Championship, IIHF U18 World Championship, the World Junior Challenge, National Women’s U18 Championship, Canadian Tire Para Hockey Cup, World U17 Hockey Challenge, Telus Cup, Esso Cup, Centennial Cup presented by Tim Hortons and Allan Cup.
“For 30 years, Hockey Canada, TSN, and RDS have benefitted from a broadcast relationship that has built from grassroots programs and initiatives through to our national and international championships,” said Scott Smith, Hockey Canada’s president and chief operating officer. “The traditions and love of hockey have enabled us to share our vision of bringing fans closer to Canada’s game not just through viewership, but also through participation.”
