The third edition of the UAE Tour will be broadcast all over the world via 10 different TV networks.
Abu Dhabi, 20 February 2021 – The host broadcasters Abu Dhabi Sports and Dubai Sports will produce a two hour-long live international feed for every stage of the 2021 UAE Tour. At the same time, they will also provide full live coverage of the event to local cycling fans in the host nation and the entire MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. This full live coverage will follow each stage in its entirety – from the riders’ signature ceremony and the first pedal-stroke at the stage start to the finish line and podiums that follow – with both Arabic and English commentary. Special live studio shows will be aired each day, before and after each stage, in order to offer TV viewers the best insights from the one and only WorldTour Race in the Middle East.
On the international landscape, Eurosport will be broadcasting the first race of the UCI WorldTour calendar live across all of Europe and Southeast Asia. Eurosport will also relive the best moments of the race with a final highlights show after the last stage of the Tour. In Italy, the race will be televised by RAI, on its thematic free-to-air channel.
ESPN will broadcast the UAE Tour exclusively in South America and in the Caribbean, while TUDN will be airing the seven stages of the event in Mexico and in the entirety of Central America. Sky Sports will host the race on its platforms in New Zealand.
In the rest of the world (North America, Australia, Japan, the Indian subcontinent and Sub-Saharan Africa), as well as in Europe and Southeast Asia, the home of the UAE Tour will be GCN and GCN+, thanks to their live-stream offering that encompasses the entire international feed.
To complete the international picture, Japanese cycling fans will also be able to relive the event on J Sports, with a highlights package summing up seven days of wonderful sporting action over the course of an hour.
