Good news for tennis and cricket lovers in the country as Sky Pacific has secured the rights to show the tennis tournament Laver Cup and the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup 2022.

The Ryder Cup-style tennis event is in its fifth year and will feature 12 of the world’s top players in a three-day team event from this Saturday to next Monday in London.

The tournament pits a team of six of the best ATP Tour players from Europe against six players from the rest of the world.

Team Europe will attempt to win the Laver Cup for a fifth successive time.

The tournament will also mark the retirement of 20-time singles major champion and former world No. 1, Roger Federer.

Digicel Fiji CEO, Farid Mohammed says they are delighted to bring these two great events in tennis and in cricket.

He says the glitz, glamour and razzmatazz of the Laver Cup will be the highlight for customers this week.

Mohammed says this is the first time they have secured rights for the Laver Cup and it demonstrates Sky Pacific’s vision to continue to bring Fijians more sports and entertainment.

He adds there will be big names in tennis reuniting by joining forces to represent Team Europe.

The CEO says Roger Federer will be making a return after his knee operation, along with Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, where the trio will represent the greatest generation of tennis with a collective 63 Grand Slams as well as Andy Murray.

Mohammed says more great news is that Sky Pacific will also be airing the ICC T20 Cricket Tournament World Cup in Australia with the hosts as the defending champions.

The 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will take place from the 16th of next month to November 13, with 16 teams to compete in 45 exciting matches.

This includes the qualifiers and the super 12 round. The qualifiers start on 16th October, with Sri Lanka facing Namibia while the UAE plays the Netherlands.

The Super 12 round starts on the 22nd of next month, with Australia facing New Zealand in the opening game in Sydney. In an expected thriller, India will play their first match against Pakistan on October 23rd.

Alongside the Laver Cup and ICC T20 Cricket World Cup, Sky Pacific is currently showing the Premier League and Rugby Championship, Top 14, with the UEFA Champions League, Indian Super League, English FA Cup, Bundesliga, NRL Men’s and Women’s Premiership finals, and AFL finals and much more.
