By Youthstream | 07 Apr 2012
VALKENSWAARD (The Netherlands), 7th April 2012 – The 2012 FIM Motocross World Championship starts tomorrow in the sandy track of Valkenswaard and Youthstream is very pleased to announce that one more year the championship will be covered worldwide thanks to the renewal with international broadcasters and the incorporation of new ones.
This 2012 season Speed2.com will broadcast the MXGP in the USA and Canada, while Sport 1 will broadcast it in Germany. And thanks to the new deal with Auto Television the series will be also covered in Russia, and Supersport will cover the MXGP in Africa.
In Brazil Brandsports has extended the agreement with Youthstream for three more years, as well as FOX in Australia. ESPN Star will cover the MXGP in Asia for one more year, as well as Sport TV in Portugal. Motors TV and SportItalia will keep on covering the FIM Motocross World Championship after having signed a 3-year contract with Youthstream last year.
Last but not least, VRT in Belgium will broadcast LIVE the Monster Energy FIM Motocross World Championship, which will take place in Lommel, Belgium, during the 30th September weekend.
Giuseppe Luongo explained: “Youthstream's main goal is to make the maximum effort for the promotion of the FIM Motocross World Championship and the development of the television and media coverage world wide. Without television and with Internet only, it would be impossible for our teams, riders and organizers to find the sponsors and the revenue to participate in the World Championship. From the beginning Youthstream has always made a big investment in the TV production and broadcasting and also creating new tools like last year with MX-LIFE.TV and this year the possibility to follow the MXGP live on iPad and iPhone, but even if we believe very much in the new technology linked to the telephone, we continue to invest also on the traditional television which still reaches the large audience, and after long negotiations we are very proud to reach important markets like USA with Speed, Germany with Sport1, Australia with FOX, Russia with Auto Television and also to renew the contracts with ESPN Star covering all Asia and Middle East and Bandsport one of the best Brazilian television stations. We believe that with this additional coverage the MXGP will increase its audience and its notoriety in 2012. We thank all our partners for believing in our sport, work and cooperation, and we wish all our fans a great 2012 FIM Motocross World Championship watching live on the circuit, via TV and on MX-LIFE.TV."
