One Sport extends SEC license until 2030
During the Gala to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Speedway Euro Championship, representatives of One Sport and FIM Europe announced the decision on the extension of the contract to organize the Speedway Euro Championship series. One Sport will be the organizer of the series until at least 2030.
Thanks to the consistent efforts of the entire One Sport team, the SEC series has managed to rise to an excellent level. The starting list every year includes the biggest speedway stars, and the competition has come to Poland, Croatia, Denmark, Sweden, Latvia, the Czech Republic and Germany, among others. Tomasz Gollob, Nicki Pedersen, Martin Vaculik, Leon Madsen, Mikkel Michelsen, Patryk Dudek and Emil Sajfutdinow, among others, have raced on a variety of tracks.
Michal Sikora – FIM Europe President
“On behalf of the FIM Europe, I’m very happy to confirm the renewed partnership with One Sport until 2030. The Speedway Euro Championship series is becoming more and more attractive and gives fantastic opportunities of development for the motorsports’ brands. I would like to say thank you to the promoter: I’m confident this high-level collaboration will confirm the Championship as one of the most successful European series. Together we continue to find positive solutions and ideas in order to deliver the best Championship possible, and one that we can all be proud of”.
Karol Lejman – One Sport CEO
“We are very happy that the contract has been extended for another 5 years. We still have a lot of ideas in our heads, and we believe that our experience and fresh perspective on speedway sport will bring fans a product of the highest level. When we announced, for example, the return of speedway to the Silesian Stadium in Chorzow, many doubted the success of this project. We hope that other ideas can also be realized and will appeal to fans”.
Karolina Jankowska – Board Member of One Sport
“We all watch the development of speedway sport and see how we need to direct our thinking, regarding the development of the SEC series. I want to assure fans that we are gushing with energy and have heads full of ideas. We are looking forward to the first competition in 2023 and hope it will meet the expectations of the fans”.
The renewal of the contract is both a reason for joy, but also an awareness of the next challenges. Intensive work has been going on since the beginning of the year, which is expected to growing up in the coming months.
In 2023, the TAURON SEC series will visit Czestochowa, Guestrow, Bydgoszcz and Pardubice.
