Stan picks up French Open and Wimbledon for Stan Sport in 2021

Stan has announced that it will expand its sport offering in 2021, with Australia’s leading local streaming service announcing it is set to launch two of the world most prestigious tennis Grand Slam tournaments, as part of a new add-on sports package which will become available on Stan in 2021.

These new sport partnerships will see Stan become a new home for two of the world’s most respected and renowned tennis championships, Wimbledon and Roland-Garros.

In 2021Stan will be a one stop shop for both these tournaments, delivering every match from every court, live and on demand, and ad-free.

The combination of Stan, alongside Nine’s broader TV platforms and media assets, means Stan is better placed than any other streaming or broadcast TV businesses to bring these sports to more Australians than ever before.

The brand new partnership with Wimbledon and Roland-Garros follows on from the recently announced Rugby partnership, which also kicks off in 2021; with Super Rugby, Super W, The Rugby Championship, including the Bledisloe Cup, Wallaroos games, Shute Shield, Hospital Cup, Mitre 10 & Currie Cup, plus all SANZAAR Union home games live and on demand, ad-free on Stan.

Mike Sneesby, CEO of Stan, said: “With this announcement, Stan will become a home of Wimbledon and Roland-Garros in Australia — two of the world’s most prestigious tennis tournaments. Expanding our live streaming offer, sports fans can look forward to full coverage of both tournaments live & on demand, ad-free on Stan from 2021.”

Mick Desmond, Commercial & Media Director, AELTC, said: “We are delighted to be announcing a return to Channel Nine’s multiple platforms as our exclusive broadcast partner for The Championships in Australia. Wimbledon has a long and proud history in Australia, and we look forward to seeing The Championships unfold across Nine’s impressive network.”

“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Channel Seven and Foxtel for their efforts in broadcasting Wimbledon over the past decade.”

Bernard Giudicelli, President of the French Tennis Federation said: “We are very happy to have signed this agreement with Nine. The multiple viewing platforms they offer will only increase the renown of Roland-Garros Down Under, where tennis fans boast a real passion for the game.”

Tennis fans will be able to see every game, set and match on their favourite device via the brand new sport package, which Stan subscribers will be able to add in 2021.
