TVE board approves Vuelta rights renewal

The board of Spanish public-service broadcaster TVE has approved a renewal of a rights deal for the Vuelta a España cycling race.

The new agreement will run for four years, from 2017 to 2020.

The rights for the race are distributed by the Unipublic agency, which operates the event.

TVE’s existing three-year rights deal expires after the 2016 edition of the event.
