Swiss-Ski and the SSR have extended their long-established partnership for winter sports for six seasons (2021/22); and its success is much awaited. Channels and platforms of the SSR will continue to guarantee high quality for snow sports coverage. In collaboration with Swiss-Ski and the Organisers of the Ski World Cup, the SSR will produce, worldwide and with its usual quality, TV coverage of all FIS Alpine skiing, cross country skiing and ski jumping events in Switzerland. The competitions, amongst which include the Ladies World Cup competition in Crans-Montana, henceforth held annually, will be covered on its channels and platforms.
The SSR has made an agreement with the Swiss ski Federation,Swiss-Ski, for all events organised by the FIS in Switzerland, and notably Alpine skiing competitions, ski jumping competitions, cross country and ski Tour competitions, snowboard and freestyle/skicross competitions. The contract included the production of the TV coverage that the SSR will continue to produce with the quality it is known for. In addition, the SSR has pledged to include all coverage on Swiss territory and will offer in-depth coverage, on its channels and its platforms (television, radio, on-line/mobile), for events that take place in Switzerland. The agreement is applicable until the 2021/22 season.
The president of Swiss-Ski, Urs Lehmann, explains: «The SSR is an important and trustworthy partner for many years. We are very happy that this good collaboration will continue for six seasons more. Thanks to the SSR, we can count on the great quality coverage, worldwide, for World Cup events that will take place in Switzerland. This coverage is strengthened publicity for Swiss-Ski and organisers with whom it has worked with for many years, and presents Switzerland as a true winter sports country.» Marius Robyr, President of the Organising Committee of annual Alpine skiing World Cup competitions in Crans-Montana, wishes to congratulate Swiss-Ski and the SSR for the renewal of their partnership and underscores:"Crans-Montana and the Valais take enormous advantage of the high quality of live coverage throughout the world. The value of the competitions, the unique Ski World Cup event in French-speaking Switzerland, is enormous. We recognise and highlight the great commitment of an outstanding savoir faire of the RTS, the official broadcaster for our competitions."
