Super League Triathlon (SLT) and BT Sport have agreed a partnership which will see the entire 2021 Championship Series broadcast live on the channel, on demand via its App, as well as a highlights package.
Super League’s Championship Series will feature four back-to-back races throughout September with events in London, Munich, Jersey and Malibu and will crown the fastest triathletes in the world.
The series will begin in London on 5th September, and take place each week, culminating with the Malibu event on the 25th. The 2021 Championship Series also sees the addition of SLT Teams - a new team franchise concept that organisers say will deliver ‘more tactics and dynamics’, and will ensure the racing remains ‘constantly high octane’.
“Super League Triathlon’s 2021 Championship Series is set to raise the bar for short course triathlon with the best athletes in the world competing in thrilling formats for a prize purse of $1.25 million,” said Joe Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer, Super League Triathlon.
“SLT Teams is the next step in Super League’s vision to grow triathlon into a sustainable spectator sport and BT Sport is perfectly placed to help showcase these brilliant events to audiences in the UK.”
Rachel Knight, Director of Sports Rights, BT Sport, added: “Our customers can look forward to the very best action from one of the world’s most gruelling sports series, with Great Britain’s Jonny Brownlee set to compete.
“BT Sport will be bringing viewers coverage from a range of triathlon events in due course.”
BT Sport will screen the Championship Series live in the UK, with additional highlights programmes from each event.
