The Grand Slam of all Grand Slams just got even bigger with Fox Sports set to serve up its biggest coverage ever across more platforms with a dedicated 24/7 Wimbledon channel.

From Monday 27 June, Fox Sports 505 will become the home of the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament with round-the-clock coverage including over 600 hours of live action. The most memorable Wimbledon moments and matches will also be shown throughout the tournament on Australia’s only dedicated Grand Slam channel.

Viewers will receive live and high definition primetime coverage of the year’s third Grand Slam from the first round through to, and including, the Quarter-Finals with three exclusive live matches each day across the first nine days.

In addition, fans will be able to choose from seven live matches at any one time across the opening week for the first time ever.

Four additional channels will be available via the Foxtel Red Button including three live matches along with all the latest news and views on Wimbledon Extra.

Whether at home or on the go, Fox Sports will keep fans across all the action and updates with foxsports.com.au and the Fox Sports App offering six live matches plus access to Live@Wimbledon providing eight hours of courtside and tournament analysis each day.

Australia’s number one multisports website will also be the destination for fans to follow the action online with comprehensive news and analysis, video highlights and live scores.

Complementing Fox Sports’ comprehensive Wimbledon coverage will be a dedicated 30-minute daily preview show The Daily Serve hosted by Davis Cup captain Wally Masur alongside Adam Peacock.

Broadcasting live from London, Masur and Peacock will provide in-depth analysis, preview the upcoming action and talk to current and former players each day before live action begins.

In addition, Fox Sports News 500 will deliver the latest results, interviews, highlights and analysis each day plus Masur and Fox Sports News reporter Patrick Stack will wrap up all the overnight Wimbledon action each morning and provide afternoon previews ahead of play.
