Eurosport has landed media rights to the revamped Davis Cup by Rakuten Madrid Finals in a two-year deal with the International Tennis Federation, covering the UK and Scandinavia.

The event will feature 75 matches between 18th and 24th November across 18 national teams, including a Great Britain side welcoming the returning Andy Murray for the first time since 2016. All nations will compete in a group stage before qualifying sides will advance in knockout stages from the quarter final onwards. Each tie will feature two singles matches followed by a doubles match.

Eurosport’s deal to show the 2019 and 2020 editions of the competition will see all of the games shown live as well as on-demand on the Eurosport Player. The broadcaster has also promised fans “new camera angles and augmented reality to enhance their viewing experience.”

Laurent Prud’homme, SVP Rights Acquisitions & Syndication, Eurosport, said: "The Davis Cup always brings out incredible displays of patriotism in all players representing their home country, while at Eurosport we continue to power people’s passions for tennis by delivering the best events to millions of fans across the continent.

"We are delighted to partner with the ITF and Kosmos for this event, an agreement that serves to reinforce Eurosport’s position as the Home of Tennis in Europe."
