Ten in line for Sochi Olympic rights

13 May 2013

SOCHI 2014: It is expected that the Ten Network will come to an agreement with the International Olympic Committee over the rights to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Ten is in line to beam the first ever Olympic Winter Games hosted in Russia- just Russia's second Games since hosting the 1980 Moscow Games (while as the Soviet Union).

Running from February 7-23, 2014, in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea, these are set to be the most expensive Games in history- Summer or Winter.

The International Olympic Committee had initially intended to sell the Sochi Games as a package with the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

Instead, the rights to Rio 2016 will be sold separately- perhaps as a package with the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea and the 2020 Games according to the Australian Financial Review.
