beIN Sports to exclusively broadcast Wimbledon live across Mena

beIN Media Group, the global sports and entertainment broadcaster and its flagship sports channel beIN Sports will broadcast the much-anticipated 2021 Wimbledon Championship live and exclusively to its millions of viewers and subscribers across the Middle East and North Africa (Mena), on dedicated channels in three languages – English, Arabic and French.

Wimbledon is scheduled to kick-off Monday, with all matches set to take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

beIN Sports’ trilingual coverage will cover the tournament across 5 dedicated tennis channels beIN Sports 5, 6 and 7, English 1 and French 1.

The commentary and analyst team is the best around – live from Doha, Qatar, beIN Sports will be hosting legends of the game including Selima Sfar, the second highest ranked female Tunisian and Arab player of all time, former Kuwaiti tennis player Adel al-Shatti, retired two-time champion Karim Alami, former Moroccan tennis player Anass Lamrani and more.

beIN’s special coverage of the Wimbledon Championship will also include pre-tournament programmes, daily highlights, digital coverage on beIN Sports’ social media platforms (Instagram, Twitter and YouTube) as well as post-tournament programmes and news coverage on the beIN Sports news channel.

This year’s 134th edition will see the top players from across the globe compete for the coveted trophy, including Roger Federer, defending champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams, Andy Murray and more.

Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur will be proudly representing the Mena region. Jabeur is the highest ranked Arab player in Women Tennis Association (WTA) history at No. 24 and reached two junior Grand Slam girls’ singles finals at the French Open in 2010 and 2011, winning the title on the second appearance. Also representing the MENA region is Egypt’s Mayar Sherif, who became the first women from her nation to win a Grand Slam main-draw match at the 2021 Australian Open.

All eyes will be on French Open winner Novak Djokovic as he looks to steal the show once again and clinch his 20th Grand Slam men’s singles title.

On beIN Sports’ coverage of Wimbledon, Duncan Walkinshaw, Acting Director of Programs for beIN MENA, said: “We’re delighted to bring the biggest tennis tournament of any network to the screens of the millions of fans and viewers across the region. In Mena, beIN is the exclusive home of all the Grand Slams plus the ATP and WTA tournaments. The Wimbledon Championship is part of an incredible summer of sport on our channels, where we will also simultaneously showcase the UEFA Euro 2020 and Copa America 2021 – as well as the upcoming Tokyo Olympics in July.”
