Sky Sports will remain the exclusive UK broadcaster of The Masters after agreeing a multi-year extension of its agreement with Augusta National Golf Club.

The news was announced during live coverage of the opening round of the 86th Masters and will provide Sky Sports with exclusive rights to all four rounds each year from the iconic Georgia venue.

The broadcast agreement covers the UK and, from this year, will also include Ireland.

Sky Sports subscribers will benefit from live coverage of Featured Groups and the famous Amen Corner, along with a host of other live digital feeds and full highlights from each day's play.

Sky will also offer golf fans innovative analysis and discussion with features that include the Sky Scope, Virtual Holes, Touchscreen and the Zen Green. The Shot Centre during Masters Breakfast will also provide daily expert insight.

Sky EVP and CEO UK and Europe, Stephen van Rooyen, said, "We're thrilled to be able to extend our partnership with Augusta National to continue to show this iconic Major Championship, meaning that Sky Sports continues to be the home of golf in the UK & Ireland."

The Masters joins Sky’s extensive golf offering. All four men's majors and all five women's majors are exclusively live on Sky Sports Golf as part of the 2022 calendar, with the PGA Tour, DP World Tour, LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour all available with the broadcaster.
