TNT Sports acquires Roland-Garros broadcast rights in the US for 10 years

TNT Sports will have an on-site presence during Roland-Garros, including studio and announcing crews from various locations inside Roland-Garros.

TNT Sports, a division of Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD), has secured a landmark 10-year broadcast agreement with the French Tennis Federation (FFT) for the premium Roland-Garros competition, starting in 2025.

This expansive arrangement for the fans in the US builds on Eurosport’s 35-year association with Roland-Garros. The deal will make Warner Bros. Discovery Roland-Garros’ most significant worldwide broadcast partner, providing fans with the most extensive coverage of the famous tournament ever in the US.

According to the agreement, TNT Sports will primarily present all live action from the Parisian Grand Slam in the United States, such as featured live matches on TNT, along with extra live coverage throughout TBS and truTV, nearly 900 live matches throughout every competition, including simulcasts of matches airing on TNT, TBS, and truTV, along with comprehensive highlights, behind-the-scenes, and ancillary content broadcasting through all platforms.

Luis Silberwasser, Chairman and CEO, TNT Sports, commented, “TNT Sports is thrilled to partner with the French Tennis Federation and exclusively present unprecedented coverage of Roland-Garros – one of the most prestigious sports events every year – across our full array of platforms. Roland-Garros perfectly aligns with our global sports strategy and our commitment to adding premium live sports content to our TNT Sports portfolio. We look forward to serving fans with a best-in-class content experience and providing them with direct access to more live Roland-Garros coverage than ever before.”

Gilles Moretton, President of the French Tennis Federation, said, “We’re very proud to sign this agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery, one of the world’s leading media groups. It will enable the Federation to ensure maximum exposure for Roland-Garros in the USA and help further promote the tournament. With this long-term agreement, we aim to win over new fans in this key territory for the FFT.”

This arrangement with TNT Sports in the United States makes WBD one of the biggest worldwide broadcast partners for Roland Garros and builds on a long-standing partnership with Eurosport (going back to 1989), which distributes the tournament to 55 nations outside the United States.

TNT Sports, which focuses on using cutting-edge technology, innovation, and creative storytelling to enhance its coverage of the event, will have an on-site presence during the tournament, including studio and announcing crews from various locations inside Roland-Garros.
