MTG prolongs golf rights

December 2 2014

MTG announces that it has reached an agreement to extend its exclusive rights to the PGA European tour, the Ryder Cup, The World Golf Championships, the British Open Championship, the US PGA Championship, the LPGA and the Asian Tour in the Nordics and the Baltics until the end of 2018.

The extension of these rights means that MTG’s Viasat Golf, the only dedicated golf channel in Northern Europe, and Viaplay, MTG’s online streaming service, will continue to show more than 1200 live hours/year of the most exciting golf available.

MTG has also agreed to acquire the exclusive rights for the Wimbledon grand slam tennis tournament for Denmark, also until the end of 2018.

All rights are being acquired through IMG Nordic.

“I am delighted to announce the extension of the exclusive rights to show these key golf tournaments. We have saved our dedicated golf fans from the risk of boredom and we have once again delivered on our promise of offering the very best sports content to our subscribers.”

Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, MTG President and CEO
