Lagardère Sports aces rights for ATP 250 series tournaments

The Lagardère Sports agency has struck worldwide media distribution rights deals for ATP 250 men’s tennis tournaments in Munich and Sao Paulo.

The deal for the BMW Open in Munich excludes Germany, but will run until 2019.

The agency also renewed a deal for the Brasil Open through to 2022, having already worked with the tournament for the past five years.

The ATP 250 series is the lowest tier of events on the ATP World Tour, offering 250 ranking points to each singles champion. The series was introduced in 2009 to replace the ATP International Series.
