Tennis Channel extends Citi Open deal to 2023

Pay-television broadcaster Tennis Channel has renewed its exclusive multimedia partnership with the Citi Open tournament until 2023.

The five-year agreement ensures that Tennis Channel retains its position as the television and digital home of the event in the US, which takes place annually in Washington, D.C.

Tennis Channel has covered the tournament every year since the broadcaster launched in 2003, but the two parties entered into an exclusive media-rights agreement in 2015.

Last year, Tennis Channel broadcast close to 170 hours of the week-long competition.

This year’s Citi Open will take place from July 29 to August 4.
