BT Sport will remain the home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland until at least 2024
Our comprehensive coverage will include every practice, qualifying session and race from all three classes at every round.
The fastest show on two wheels will remain on BT Sport for at least four more seasons following a new agreement with MotoGP.
The deal means BT Sport will continue to be the proud home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland until at least 2024, with live coverage of every race, practice and qualifying session from all three classes.
The latest agreement means British and Irish MotoGP fans can continue to enjoy the high-octane drama from every Grand Prix on BT Sport, as a stellar cast of riders including Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi, Fabio Quartararo and reigning champion Joan Mir battle it out for the premier class crown.
From Malaysia to Silverstone, our comprehensive coverage includes not only every practice, qualifying session, and race for MotoGP but also Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE with the latest agreement seeing BT Sport's coverage of the sport reach the 10-year mark.
Fans looking for a more immersive experience can get closer to the action on the BT Sport app, with the option of climbing on board a bike with our innovative 360 degree camera view on mobile and tablet devices.
Joan Mir will defend his first MotoGP title in 2021, after the 23-year-old became the first Suzuki rider to win the championship since American Kenny Roberts Jr in 2000.
The Spaniard faces a renewed challenge from compatriot Marc Marquez, who missed last season after breaking an arm in a heavy crash during the season-opening Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez back in July.
Marquez has been crowned World Champion in six of the last eight seasons and the returning Honda rider will be desperate to wrestle back his crown.
Simon Green, managing director of BT Sport, said: “We are extremely proud to continue as the home of MotoGP in the UK and Ireland.
“BT Sport has the best presentation team delivering the most comprehensive MotoGP coverage that UK fans have ever enjoyed, with every single practice, qualifying and race broadcast in full.
“I would also like to congratulate Dorna on safely and successfully completing the 2020 season, one of the most exciting we have seen, and thank them for collaborating with us to bring some great new programming to our audiences during last year’s lockdown.”
Manel Arroyo, managing director at Dorna Sports, said: “BT Sport are one of our most important partners and we are delighted to see MotoGP remain with them until at least 2024, securing top quality coverage for the sport in one of our most important markets.
“Fans in the UK and Ireland couldn’t ask for more. After a thrilling but challenging 2020 season, we are proud to see this partnership confirmed to continue and mark a decade of collaboration.
“We would also like to thank BT Sport for their support in 2020 and look forward to at least another three seasons working together.”
