Six Day Series, the professional track cycling series, launched in 2015 by promoter Madison Sports Group (MSG), continues its revitalisation of the electrifying velodrome events with a host of new broadcast deals for the 2019/20 season across linear, subscription, OTT and streaming platforms.

This season, the series will be available in more than 100 countries thanks to the new global broadcast deals.

In exciting news for Australian viewers, Seven Network will be covering the entire global Series on 7plus. This of course includes the Six Day Final in Brisbane (April 3-5, 2020), with those that aren’t lucky enough to be seeing the action live at the Anna Meares Velodrome able to watch via the online platform. Aussie fans can view all the thrills from the recently completed Six Day London event, which included the Australian pairing of Caleb Ewan and Josh Harrison, by clicking on to 7plus.

Eurosport has been a partner of Six Day Series since its inception four years ago and will continue as lead global broadcaster. This means the Six Day series, including the Six Day Final in Brisbane, will be beamed into 148 million homes in Europe and Asia-Pacific, across 70+ markets as well as on EurosportPlayer.

Further deals have been secured with Fox Sports Asia, Sky New Zealand and live streaming service Twitch, who will broadcast live Six Day content via their community of co-streamers throughout EMEA.

MSG chief executive James Durbin commented: “The profile of Six Day Series has increased steadily since launch in 2015, largely down to our broadcast partner strategy. We have grown our global audience year-on-year through tactical multi-territory and local broadcast deals spanning free-to-air and paid channels, which has in-turn strengthened our ability to negotiate commercial partnerships.

“Our aim is to deliver an innovative best-in-class experience for viewers at home, across all platforms and devices. Cycling at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games drives high TV ratings and with it being an Olympic year next year, we believe the 2019/20 season will deliver our highest ratings to date. ”

Six Day Series 2019/20 season started in London from 22-27 October, with six nights of exhilarating racing featuring the world’s elite cyclists and was won by superstar pairing Elia Viviani and Simone Consonni who beat out Mark Cavendish and Owain Doull to the top of the podium.
