PSA signs off on new rights deals in New Zealand and Australia

The Professional Squash Association has finalised terms for new broadcast rights deals in New Zealand and Australia.

The governing body of men’s and women’s squash has signed an 18-month agreement with pay-television broadcaster Sky New Zealand.

Live matches from the PSA World Tour will be shown in New Zealand for the first time, with the country’s 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Joelle King among those competing.

The deal was brokered by the Broadreach Media agency.

Additionally, the PSA has agreed a partnership with Fox Sports for the Australian pay-television broadcaster to show highlights programmes from World Series events throughout the 2015-16 season.

News of the impending agreements was first reported earlier this month.
