Coverage will appear across Nine and Stan subscription offerings.
CEO Hugh Marks said, “Today’s announcement sees us secure two of the world’s great tennis tournaments and gives us the flexibility to develop the right mix of games which will appear on free-to-air television while ensuring all games are available to Stan Sport subscribers live and ad-free on Stan.”
Mick Desmond, Commercial & Media Director, AELTC, said: “We are delighted to be announcing a return to Channel Nine’s multiple platforms as our exclusive broadcast partner for The Championships in Australia. Wimbledon has a long and proud history in Australia, and we look forward to seeing The Championships unfold across Nine’s impressive network.
“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Channel Seven and Foxtel for their efforts in broadcasting Wimbledon over the past decade.
“We are very happy to have signed this agreement with Nine. The multiple viewing platforms they offer will only increase the renown of Roland-Garros Down Under, where tennis fans boast a real passion for the game,” explains Bernard Giudicelli, President of the French Tennis Federation.
