Fox Sports Australia and eSkootr Championship reached an agreement where Fox Sports Australia will broadcast the inaugural eSkootr Championship (eSC).
Under the agreement, on May 13 and 14, Fox Sports Australia will broadcast highlights of the inaugural eSkootr Championship race from Printworks London, as well as the five other races scheduled for 2022, including Sion, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, and the United States.
In Australia, the use of escooters is increasing, and eSC will use its platform and lessons learned on the racetrack to encourage micro-mobility in urban areas. An expert on-screen presenting crew will provide analysis and commentary about the series, both on and off the track, in addition to highlighting the action during the 90-minute highlight show. Fox Sports Australia will broadcast eSC’s owned programme, which includes pre-race build-up, racing commentaries, and post-race discussions, highlights, and analytics, and was created by Canadian production company Boombox.
Sharon Fuller, Chief Content Officer at eSC, said the following, “There has been a lot of interest in the series from Australia and we are thrilled to be working with Fox Sports to bring all the action from our first season to TV screens across the country.
“eSC is a dynamic, tense and unpredictable new sport, and our production has been developed to ensure viewers are taken right into the heart of the action with creative camera angles and new broadcast technology, and we can’t wait to showcase this to TV fans across Australia at the first race next week in London.”
