MotoGP extends stay on Saran’s S Sport

The Saran Media agency has extended a rights deal in Turkey for the MotoGP World Championship.

The exclusive deal covers the 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons of the motorcycle-racing series.

Saran reached the agreement with the championship’s rights-holder and promoter, Dorna Sports.

The rights cover all MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 races and events on television, internet and mobile platforms.

Saran said that it will continue to exploit the rights on its pay-television channel, S Sport, which currently has more than 5.5 million subscribers in the country and is carried by operators such as Digiturk, DSmart, Turkcell TV+ and Turk Telekom.

S Sport launched two years ago as a home for English Premier League football, NBA basketball, Formula One motor-racing, UFC mixed martial arts and ATP 500 men’s tennis action, as well as MotoGP coverage.
