New TV Broadcasting Deal for MX and Supermoto in Japan
Funchal, 16th February 2005 – A Japanese television production company, GMP, has made an agreement with Youthstream to broadcast all the FIM Motocross and SuperMoto World Championships on Gaora Television in Japan. The 17 programmes of MX1/MX2, the programme of the Motocross of Nations and the 10 programmes of the S1/S2 (all programmes are of 52 minutes each) will be broadcasted a couple of weeks after the event.
“For us, Japan is the most important country,” said Mr. Giuseppe Luongo, Youthstream’s President, “I am very satisfied, especially since we have brought them the Motocross Grand Prix and now ‘finally’ being very present on television!”
“I want to especially thank Mr. Ishikawa, Senior Manager of Kawasaki, for helping us to finalize the deal with the television company. Having 29 hours of our sports on television in Japan is really a dream come true.”
“This will also help the FIM World Championship teams and riders, because finally the manufacturers and Japanese fans can follow the FIM Motocross and SuperMoto World Championships in their own country.”
Youthstream is the company that manages the exclusive television, marketing and promotional worldwide rights of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship, the FIM Motocross World Championship, the FIM Motocross Of Nations, the UEM Motocross European Championship, the UEM SuperMoto European Championship and the FIM Snowcross World Cup.
