ESPN International has reached a ten-year multimedia agreement with MexTenis, a company owned by Grupo Pegaso, to distribute the Mexican Tennis Open tournaments in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean across television and digital platforms.
Under the terms of the agreement, ESPN in Mexico has exclusive rights to all ten editions of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco and the Abierto Mifel in Cabo San Lucas. In addition, the Abierto Mifel will air on ESPN in Central America and the Caribbean.
