2013 on eurosport A sporting year like 2012 is certainly a hard act to follow but we embrace the task of once again bringing fans drama, intensity and great LIVE action from the world s greatest events in 2013. The coming year promises another fantastic celebration of sport with World Championships in 15 Olympic disciplines, including biannual events in athletics (Moscow), swimming (barcelona), alpine skiing (Schladming) and Nordic skiing (Val di Fiemme).
Football on Eurosport will be greater than ever with over 500 LIVE matches in 2013, including international tournament action from the Africa Cup of Nations, FIFA U20 World Cup and UEFA Women s EURO. Club football will be equally prominent with continued extensive coverage of the bundesliga on Eurosport 2 and the rising stars of Europe s greatest clubs competing in the exciting NextGen Series.
Eurosport showcases the biggest brands in sport and we attract increasing numbers of viewers each year for annual headline events such as the Tour de France, tennis Grand Slams and Le Mans 24 Hours. Our long-standing commitment to broadcasting Olympic sports will continue through our innovative long-term partnership with FISU, which will see future Olympic medallists compete at the 2013 Summer and Winter Universiades broadcast on our channels in July and december.
LIVE content is well-established as a core part of Eurosport s dNA and we believe our editorial excellence is essential to offer added value to sports fans. Our production teams are joined on-site at major events by world-class consultants such as Mats Wilander, Maurice Greene and bode Miller, who have unbeatable expertise in their sports. Harnessing these personalities, we are producing dedicated shows such as Ski Pass, Greene Light and Mats Point to offer special insight and analysis in a regular rendezvous.
This winning formula will allow us to again deliver the best of all sports and all emotions on Eurosport in 2013..
