W Series, the women’s motor-racing championship, has signed media rights deals covering its inaugural season across 35 territories in Asia, Africa and Oceania, it said Tuesday.
Fox Sports Asia will broadcast all W Series races on pay-television channels across 16 territories in Asia, including China, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore.
In sub-Saharan Africa, the rights-holder sold free-to-air and mobile rights in 17 territories including Nigeria, Ethiopia, Botswana, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.
In Oceania, SBS in Australia will broadcast races free-to-air via app and on-line, and in New Zealand, Sky NZ will broadcast races and highlights.
These deals were facilitated by the Pitch International agency, which W-Series appointed last week to market its global media rights.
The season starts at Hockenheim, Germany on May 4 and finishes at Brands Hatch on August 11.
