The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) and the Eurosport network have entered into an agreement for the international broadcasting of the GrandSlam Series 2013. The pan-European sports network that also services the Asia-Pacific region through Eurosport Asia will carry extensive coverage on the five regular legs plus the finals. 

Nine hours from the regular legs will be broadcast live on the channels Eurosport, Eurosport HD or Eurosport 2 as well as on Eurosport Asia. Two hours from the GrandSlam Finals in Shanghai, CHN, and one hour from the GrandSlam Standardin Beijing, CHN, will air on a delayed basis.

Eurosport All of this amounts to a very high level of international television exposure for DanceSport, its premier event series and its top athletes. But it also represents a formidable challenge for the GrandSlam organisers and for WDSF. Between them, they need to make sure that the quality of the GrandSlam coverage meets the highest international standards.

Starting with the GrandSlam Cambrils | ESP on 30 and 31 March, such coverage will be produced of the semi-final and final stages by a host broadcaster or a production company that is commissioned by the organisers. A set of guidelines authored by WDSF Communications ensures that these productions will be of certain uniformity when it comes to content and structure, and that they adopt a common look and feel that identifies them as parts of the coherent series.

For the first leg of the 2013 GrandSlam Series the following broadcast dates and times have been agreed upon between WDSF, Eurosport and organiser. Consider the change Central European Summer Time (UTC/GMT + 2 hours) from 31/03/2013!
