LPGA – SKY SPORT TEES OFF WITH ANOTHER WIN FOR WOMEN’S SPORT

Sky has secured ongoing rights to screen live coverage for official Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tournaments for 2020 to 2024 inclusive.

This means nearly 500,000* Kiwi golfing fans will be able view up to 32 international LPGA Tournaments each year – more than enough to inspire golfers around the country in a sport which continues to capture the imagination.

Martin Stewart, CEO Sky, says, “Securing the LPGA rights for the next five years was important to us at Sky.  Women’s sport is gaining momentum year on year and the LPGA allows us to bring the best of the best of women’s golf to New Zealand fans.  

“Sky has made a strong commitment to upweight women’s involvement at every level, from the sports we cover through to the production teams delivering inspirational content. Golf has one of the highest participation rates of any sport in New Zealand, and it is an important part of the Sky Sports offer.”

Sky will broadcast and stream all LPGA events live where possible.  Sky will also produce a highlights programme for each event, available to kiwi fans on Sky Sport, streamed on Sky Sport Now, and free-to-air on Prime.  

Stewart says, “Delivering sport in ways that work for all New Zealanders is a key part of our Sky Sport commitment.  Golf fans who want to watch all the LPGA action across the wide range of events can do so on the Sky Sport golf channel, and they can stream it live and on demand on Sky Sport Now and Sky Go.  Highlights are available for those who want to see the key moments on our streaming services as well as broadcast on Sky Sport, and we also make them available free-to-air on Prime.  

Sky’s coverage for the LPGA will kick off late January 2020.
