The French Tennis Federation (FFT) has announced that it has extended its broadcasting deal with SuperSport, which broadcast Roland-Garros throughout Sub-Saharan Africa until the 2026 edition of the tournament.
SuperSport will continue to broadcast the Roland-Garros tournament in more than 50 Sub-Saharan African countries as part of this new contract, which includes television and digital rights for the Parisian Grand Slam.
By extending this collaboration, SuperSport will be able to provide comprehensive coverage of the tournament, particularly by airing all-night sessions across all of its platforms.
SuperSport is one of Africa’s leading sports broadcasters, producing and broadcasting national and international sporting events for its subscribers.
This agreement will expand SuperSport’s collaboration with the FFT, whose partnership agreement for broadcasting Roland-Garros in Sub-Saharan Africa was signed more than 15 years ago.
Gilles Moretton, President of the French Tennis Federation, said, “We are delighted to renew this broadcasting agreement with SuperSport, our long-term partner in Sub-Saharan Africa. We sincerely thank them for their loyalty. Thanks to this agreement, tennis fans in Africa – of which there are many! – will be able to indulge their passion and watch the champions in action.”
Marc Jury, Chief Executive of SuperSport, commented, “Our association with the French Tennis Federation is one of the longest we have enjoyed and SuperSport is thrilled to have extended this partnership. Roland-Garros has a unique flair and appeal that resonates with our viewers across the continent. The action is constant and the great history and traditions make this must-watch television.”
