Eurosport has reached a two-year TV and digital rights partnership with the International Tennis Federation to show the Davis Cup by Rakuten finals in six of its markets.

Fans across the UK, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland will have the opportunity to enjoy the premier international team event in men’s tennis finals live on Eurosport and Eurosport Player and on-demand via Eurosport’s digital platforms in 2019 and 2020.

This year’s finals, which has been transformed into a one-week tennis extravaganza set to feature the best players from all over the world, will be hosted in Madrid’s “La Caja Magica” between 18-24 November, with fans watching on Eurosport’s platforms able to enjoy new camera angles and augmented reality to enhance their viewing experience.

Laurent Prud’homme, SVP Rights Acquisitions & Syndication for Eurosport, said: “There is great synergy between the Davis Cup and Eurosport with both synonymous with passion. The Davis Cup always brings out incredible displays of patriotism in all players representing their home country, while at Eurosport we continue to power people’s passions for tennis by delivering the best events to millions of fans across the continent.

“We are delighted to partner with the ITF and Kosmos for this event, an agreement that serves to reinforce Eurosport’s position as the Home of Tennis in Europe.”

The final of the 2019 Davis Cup will take place at the 12,500-capacity Manolo Santana Stadium in the Caja Magica Complex on Sunday 24 November.

Last week, Eurosport also announced that it has agreed multi-year deals with ATP and ATP Media to screen the ATP Tour in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia having already reached similar agreements over the past 12 months in France, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Russia.

November will be a bumper month of tennis for fans in Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, who will be able to enjoy the Next Gen ATP Finals live on Eurosport from Milan, Italy. Eurosport will provide live coverage of every point on all platforms and devices, including its leading OTT streaming service – Eurosport Player.
