IndyCar announces new international broadcast partners

Following last week’s revelation of renewed international partners, IndyCar has revealed new broadcasters for IndyCar action in various countries within Europe, Asia and South America.

Sport 1 will carry IndyCar action in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, on the Sport 1+ premium service platform, with selected highlights on Sport 1. Arena 4 in Hungary and Sport Extra in Romania, new for 2020, will continue their coverage while new for 2021 is Eurosport for Poland and the Indian sub-continent, along with TV Arena Sport for Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Slovenia.

DAZN joins the 2021 lineup for coverage of the series in Italy, and its global streaming service will deliver IndyCar action to another 60 countries in Europe, Asia, Australasia, the Caribbean, South and Central America, North Africa and the Middle East.

In Asia, Fox Sports will ensure IndyCar can be seen in more than a dozen countries, including mainland China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and North Korea.

TV Cultura will provide coverage for Brazil, a country whose TV coverage was crucial to encouraging sponsorship opportunities for IndyCar drivers at the turn of this century and helped ensure regular interest in hosting events.

Of the 34 drivers expected to compete in at least one IndyCar race this season, 22 will be international. Combined with renewals and existing broadcast partnerships, 209 countries will be represented among 26 worldwide networks.

“The stars of the NTT IndyCar Series resonate in every corner of the globe, and our broadcast partnerships will bring our sport to a wider international audience in 2021,” said Mark Miles, president and CEO, Penske Entertainment Corp. “This growth and excitement are in line with what we’re seeing on the track with breathtaking racing, compelling storylines and engaging personalities featuring our defiant athletes. These new partnerships add to our momentum as we launch the 2021 season.”
