Ten Sports reaches agreement with Zee Sports to broadcast French Open

Tennis fans across India will enjoy comprehensive coverage of one of the world’s most prestigious Grand Slam tennis tournament following Ten Sports’ successful agreement with Zee Sports to broadcast the French Open.

For the first time, two private sports broadcasters have come together to maximise efforts to broadcast such a big sporting spectacle.

The agreement marks increasing co-operation between Ten Sports and Zee Sports, after Ten recently sub-licensed the Indo-Pak cricket tournament from Abu Dhabi from Zee for the Pakistan region.

Peter Hutton, Vice-President – Programming, Ten Sports, said, “We have been concerned for some time about the clashes every year between West Indies cricket and our live coverage of the French Open. This new arrangement will allow viewers to chose between their favourite sporting events so that no one loses out.”

As part of the deal, both broadcasters will broadcast over 50 hours of exclusive Live tennis action from the Roland Garros, while Ten Sports will market the tournament.

All the finals, which include the men’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s singles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles, will be aired Live exclusively on Zee Sports, while Ten Sports will show the India-West Indies cricket series.

Said Himanshu Mody, Business Head, Zee Sports, “We are delighted to conclude the broadcast sharing agreement with Ten Sports for one of the most exciting tennis event of the year. This acquisition adds to the exciting line-up of tennis properties on Zee Sports, which includes the WTA, Davis Cup and Fed Cup.”
