The inaugural Racers Grand Prix will be broadcast to over 100 million homes across the world, revealed Glen Mills, the chairman of the organising committee.
“We have some very powerful line-ups for you and we have not only looked at developing here in Jamaica, but to share it with the world and to further enhance Jamaica’s image in the sports world,” said Mills at a press conference yesterday at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel.
“We are partnering with ESPN Play to get into over 100 million homes and we are also partnering with EBU (European Broadcasting Union) and EuroSports in Europe to break the meet to several countries across the world,” he noted.
“So not just the 35,000 that will be at the stadium and the 2.8 million watching it live on tv. It will be showcased across the world and I am sure it will provide great added value to Jamaica’s sports tourism. We are hoping, going forward, in future years it will get even bigger,” said Mills.
The historic Racers Grand Prix is set for Saturday June 11 at the National Stadium and will have 15 track and field events on the card. It is scheduled to start at 6:00 pm with an opening ceremony, in which entertainer Chris Martin will perform.Continue to full Article
