The US Open has announced a five-year broadcast deal with Sky Sports, starting with the 2023 edition of the Grand Slam event.
The deal was formed by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), as the tournament makes its return to the channel for UK and Ireland viewers.
The programming makes its debut with the 2023 US Open at Flushing Meadows, beginning on 28 August, with Sky Sports holding the exclusive broadcast rights up to and including the 2027 event.
“We are very excited to partner with the USTA once again to deliver the US Open, one of the greatest Grand Slam tennis tournaments in the world,” commented Jonathan Licht, Sky Sports Managing Director.
“We have had a great history with the USTA and remember Andy Murray’s 2012 US Open win as one of the great moments on Sky Sports. This is another huge sporting event for our viewers, and we look forward to bringing tennis fans more of what they love and welcoming in new fans to the sport.”
The agreement includes coverage of the men’s and women’s tournaments, alongside the respective doubles, mixed doubles, junior, and wheelchair competitions.
Sky Sports will access all individual court feeds, streaming a minimum of 135 hours of the two-week tournament. Extensive coverage will also provide content for both existing tennis fans and new audiences across Sky Sports’ linear, digital, and social channels.
