BBC extends deal to broadcast North West 200 until 2025

BBC Sport NI has extended its deal to broadcast the Fonacab International North West 200 in association with Nicholl’s Oils until 2025.

The extension to the partnership will mean that BBC Sport NI will maintain its dedicated level of coverage of the world renowned event across its TV, radio and digital services.

The BBC will continue to bring race fans live worldwide video streaming of all races and practice sessions during the week online at bbc.co.uk/sportni. All races and practice sessions will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio Ulster during the week.

Race fans can view all the action across three highlights programmes on BBC Northern Ireland television and catch up via the BBC iPlayer.

“Now in its 90th year, the International North West 200 is one of those special events that captures the imagination of riders and fans right across the globe. BBC Northern Ireland relishes the opportunity to be able to bring the action and the passion of the event to the widest possible audience,” Peter Johnston, Director BBC Northern Ireland said.

“We have a long relationship with the event, Mervyn and the Coleraine and District Motor Club. It’s great that we’ve extended our partnership with them for a further five years and we will continue to provide the best possible coverage of the NW200.”
