The Discovery Networks-owned broadcaster Eurosport has expanded its deal with The All England Club to present all matches of The Championships, Wimbledon in further territories.

From next year, the tennis tournament will be shown in an additional 16 countries on Eurosport’s TV channels and its Eurosport Player service.

The pan-European broadcaster will now show the tennis tournament in 25 countries across the continent.

Peter Hutton, Eurosport chief executive, said: “We’re building a long-term partnership with The All England Club which supports Eurosport’s strategy to secure premium must-have content, made available to fans on any device.”
