Eurosport secures TDF cycling rights until 2023


Eurosport has confirmed it will be retaining rights for the Tour De France and a number of UCI World Tour Events until 2023.

The new deal with the European Broadcasting Union and Amaury Sport Organisation for the Tour De France will enable Eurosport to show the first 75 minutes of stage action exclusively, before other channels, such as ITV4 in the UK are allowed to show live action.

The following UCI World Tour events are also covered in the rights deal:
  • Paris-Roubaix
  • Liège-Bastogne-Liège
  • Flèche Wallonne
  • Paris-Nice
  • Critérium du Dauphiné
  • Paris-Tours
  • GP Frankfurt

The latest agreement takes Eurosport’s association with the Tour de France into a 32nd year, with the event having first been shown on the channel since 1991.

Peter Hutton, Eurosport CEO, said:

“We proudly claim to be the Home of Cycling and this new deal is further proof of that statement. We now have every minute of the Tour de France until 2023, meaning all the Grand Tours, the five Monuments and over 30 UCI World Tour events will be on Eurosport - over 200 days and 2,500 hours of live cycling coverage each year. The message for cycling fans is clear, Eurosport is the best place to follow the sport - we have every sprint, climb and breakaway from the biggest races covered on TV or on the go and on-demand via Eurosport Player.”
