Canadian pay-television sports broadcaster TSN has agreed a multi-year deal for rights to the ATP World Tour men’s tennis series.
The agreement with the ATP grants TSN media rights in Canada to an extensive lineup of ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and ATP World Tour 500 tournaments. The addition of ATP World Tour tournaments complements the broadcaster’s exclusive live Canadian coverage of all four grand slams – the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open.
TSN’s deal will commence in February and while it includes the season-ending World Tour Finals in London, England, it excludes Canadian events on the ATP World Tour.
The ATP’s current rights partner in Canada, pay-television broadcaster Rogers Sportsnet, in May renewed a broadcast and multimedia rights deal for the Rogers Cup tournament. The renewed agreement will run for five years, from 2016 through to 2020. The Rogers Cup encompasses the men’s ATP Masters 1000 and women’s WTA Premier 5 events alternating annually between Toronto and Montreal.
