SuperTennis to broadcast ATP Finals in Turin from 2021

Tennis channel SuperTennis will be the domestic broadcaster of the ATP World Tour Finals in Italy for the five years from 2021, according to Federazione Italiana Tennis (FIT) president Angelo Binaghi.

Binaghi announced the deal at the official unveiling of Turin as the host city for the Finals. He claimed the ATP’s new broadcast deal with SuperTennis would run for the same length of time as Turin’s hosting deal: from 2021 to 2025.

Pay-television broadcaster Sky Italia currently has a two-year deal, from 2019 to 2020, for rights to the Finals with ATP Media, the commercial arm of the tour. Both tournaments will be played in London, the current host city.

SuperTennis holds rights in 2019 to ATP World Tour 500 and 250 events, the ATP NextGen Finals, and the WTA Tour and end-of-year Finals.

But MP & Silva and B4 are no longer active and IMG could yet face a major problem. The agency could be hit with a substantial damages claim by the league for lost earnings.
