Dailymotion, the world’s second-largest video site after YouTube, has signed an exclusive partnership with the All England Lawn Tennis Club to deliver live coverage of this year’s Wimbledon Championship to tennis fans around the world on a variety of connected devices.
Live @ Wimbledon will be on air every day for the full two weeks of The Championships, and will blend live tennis with the off-court buzz of a day at Wimbledon. Viewers will also be able to enjoy pre-packaged content such as behind the scenes interviews, previews and reviews, match highlights and archive footage.
The service will be available on wimbledon.com and the official mobile apps for iOS and Android devices, with live content available in the UK and the Americas. It will be presented by former players Annabel Croft and Mats Wilander, who will be based in a studio located on the Broadcast Centre roof.
“Dailymotion is incredibly proud to be partnering with Wimbledon to deliver exciting new digital content for tennis fans around the world,” said Daniel Adams, VP International Content at Dailymotion. “This will be a mix of live action, exclusive background and behind the scenes material to complement the live broadcast. This builds on our heritage of showing exciting and exclusive live sports action to our global audience of 115 million monthly unique visitors.”
