ITV Sport retain TV rights to French Open at Roland Garros

ITV today announced it will continue to show exclusive free to air coverage of the French Open at Roland Garros until 2021.

The broadcaster – which has held the rights to show the tennis Grand Slam tournament since 2012 – will now take its coverage into the next decade under the agreement, which encompasses the showpiece event from 2019 until 2021.

“Bringing viewers free to air coverage of one of the real delights of the sporting calendar at Roland Garros in recent years has been a privilege, so we’re hugely pleased to announce this new deal to keep the tournament with ITV,” said Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport.

“France Federation Tennis have been absolutely brilliant as partners and we look forward to continuing working with them over the coming years.”

ITV4 will continue to broadcast comprehensive coverage each year, with a guaranteed minimum of 90 hours devoted to each tournament. The action will also be available via the ITV Hub.
