BT Sport has extended its contract for live MotoGP TV broadcasting rights in the UK and Ireland by a further three years, until the end of 2024.

The telecommunications company, which first secured the MotoGP rights in 2014, will continue to show every practice, qualifying and race for the MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE classes.

However, there will be commentary changes for the 2021 season, with Keith Huewen bowing-out at the end of last year.

"We are extremely proud to continue as the home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland," said Simon Green Managing Director at BT Sport. "BT Sport has the best presentation team delivering the most comprehensive MotoGP coverage that UK fans have ever enjoyed, with every single practice, qualifying and race broadcast in full.

"I would also like to congratulate Dorna on safely and successfully completing the 2020 season, one of the most exciting we have seen, and thank them for collaborating with us to bring some great new programming to our audiences during last year’s lockdown."

Manel Arroyo, Managing Director at Dorna Sports added: "BT Sport are one of our most important partners and we are delighted to see MotoGP remain with them until at least 2024, securing top quality coverage for the sport in one of our most important markets. Fans in the UK and Ireland couldn’t ask for more.

"After a thrilling but challenging 2020 season, we are proud to see this partnership confirmed to continue and mark a decade of collaboration. We would also like to thank BT Sport for their support in 2020 and look forward to at least another four seasons working together."

The MotoGP video pass is the alternative option for those wishing to follow live TV coverage in the UK.
