BT Sport to air Super League Triathlon series

BT Sport and Super League Triathlon (SLT) have reached an agreement which will see the 2021 Championship Series broadcast live on their channels, and through its streaming service App.

As well as live coverage of the events, BT Sport will also produce a highlights package for the series.

The 2021 Championship Series, which takes place on four consecutive weekends in September, will host events in London, Munich, Jersey and Malibu, with a number of the best short course athletes in the world taking part.

In addition to the individual racing on show, the recently announced SLT Teams series will run alongside in an effort to bring a more ‘tactical and dynamic’ event.

Joe Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer, Super League Triathlon: “Super League Triathlon’s 2021 Championship Series is set to raise the bar for short course triathlon with the best athletes in the world competing in thrilling formats for a prize purse of $1.25 million.”

“SLT Teams is the next step in Super League’s vision to grow triathlon into a sustainable spectator sport and BT Sport is perfectly placed to help showcase these brilliant events to audiences in the UK.”

Rachel Knight, Director of Sports Rights, BT Sport, added: “Our customers can look forward to the very best action from one of the world’s most gruelling sports series, with Great Britain’s Jonny Brownlee set to compete. 

“BT Sport will be bringing viewers coverage from a range of triathlon events in due course.”

The opening round of the 2021 SLT Championship Series takes place on Sunday, September 5 in London, live on BT Sport.
