François Ribeiro, Head of Discovery Sports Events, said: “Poland has a rich and successful history in speedway, as well as one of the most passionate fan bases anywhere and we wanted to bring the 2022 season, the first under Discovery Sports Events, to as many fans as possible.

“Securing this partnership with TTV supports our ambition to grow speedway by bringing it to the widest possible audience, maximising engagement and viewing opportunities across the many competitions we will be promoting.

“We welcome the opportunity to work with TTV to ensure fans in Poland can enjoy free-to-air coverage throughout the 2022 season and we look forward to bringing an unprecedented four rounds to Poland this year.”

The broadcasts will feature studios, giving the viewers an opportunity to learn the secrets of speedway and deepen their knowledge through in-depth opinions and analysis from experts, as well as backstage materials from the paddock and interviews with the riders.

Speedway fans will also receive the latest information from the track on an ongoing basis thanks to the commentators and reporters working at all SGP stadiums.
