REV TV Announce New Deal to Bring Canadians the Pinnacle of Motorcycle Racing

Burlington, ON (March 3rd, 2022) — REV TV CANADA'S MOTORSPORTS & AUTOMOTIVE DESTINATION 24/7 is delighted to announce the return of the pinnacle of motorcycle racing, the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship, for 2022. REV TV and MotoGP™ commercial rights holder Dorna Sports have come to terms on a new one-year deal that will not only bring every round of the championship live to Canadians, but also includes a highlight program that features the premier class, MotoGP™, as well as Moto2™, Moto3™ and coverage of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup, along with unique MotoGP™-focused programming such as the documentary Tales of Valentino Rossi, which celebrates the recently retired legend and pulls the curtain back on The Doctor’s storied career.

“The response we received to the 2021 MotoGP season on REV TV demonstrated just how much Canadians love motorcycle racing,” said Mike Garrow, President of REV TV. “There is no higher form of motorcycle racing than MotoGP, and our fans have let us know that they want to see even more, so we are immensely happy to announce this new arrangement with MotoGP that will see coverage of all levels of the Grand Prix racing ladder,” he added. “We look forward to continuing to work with the excellent people at Dorna Sports, and have some exciting activations planned around MotoGP for our Canadian fans.”

Alex Arroyo, Head of Media Rights at Dorna Sports: “We are delighted to continue working with REV TV after a successful first season together, ensuring Canadian fans will be able to continue enjoying great coverage of our sport. To have every MotoGP round shown live, as well as highlights and coverage of Moto2, Moto3 and MotoE, is fantastic news for our sport and our growing fanbase in Canada.”

All 21 rounds of the world-travelling Championship will be shown live on REV TV. Coverage of the 2022 MotoGP™ World Championship season starts this Sunday at 9:30AM ET under the bright lights of the Lusail International Circuit in Qatar.
