PREMIER SPORTS SECURES SPEEDWAY RIGHTS
Premier Sports, the UK subscription sports channel today announced it had secured Swedish Elitserien and Polish Ekstraliga television rights in the UK and Ireland.
The channel which operates on the SKY, Virgin and Premier Player platforms will be broadcasting 4 hours of Speedway coverage most Tuesday evening over the summer with live coverage of Swedish meetings followed by delayed commercial free coverage of both Sunday matches from the Polish league. Coverage of both leagues will begin on Tuesday the 9th of May.
The leagues which are considered the top 2 in the world feature the best in the sport with household names such as Tai Woffinden, Greg Hancock and Chris Holder featuring. Also worth following are the exploits of up and coming young guns Bartosz Zmarzlik, his Polish compatriot, Patryk Dudek, plus Emil Sayfutdinov and Jason Doyle.
Richard Sweeney, General Manager of Premier Sports commented, “It is great news that Speedway is returning to Premier Sports in HD to compliment our other motorsports coverage. We feel a Tuesday evening appointment to view the best leagues in Europe will prove very popular with Speedway fans in the UK. We are especially delighted to finally bring Polish Speedway, which is considered the finest in Europe to viewers in the UK for the first time”.
To launch the 2017 Speedway coverage, Premier Sports is offering customers their first 2 months subscription for only £1 using promo code SPEEDWAY. This offer is available on the Sky platform only. Visit www.premiersports.com for more information. Offer ends 17th May.
