Sky Sports agrees a new deal to remain the home of the European Tour until 2024 and the Ryder Cup until 2025.

Sky Sports has reached a new agreement to remain as the exclusive broadcaster of the European Tour until at least 2024.

The deal will see at least 32 live events a year broadcast from Europe's elite golf tour on the Sky Sports Golf channel, including new featured group coverage for the flagship tournaments.

Also covered by the agreement is the next two editions of the Ryder Cup - next year's event in Rome and the 2025 Ryder Cup in New York.

"As we kickstart a record-breaking year of golf on Sky, we are thrilled to be extending our long-term partnership with the DP World Tour, further cementing Sky Sports as the home of golf in the UK and Ireland," said Sky Sports MD Jonathan Licht.

"This year our customers can enjoy the DP World Tour alongside our live coverage of all four men's majors, all five women's majors, the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour, all whilst they countdown the days to next year's Ryder Cup in Rome, live exclusively on Sky Sports."

Sky Sports has now been home to the European Tour for almost 30 years.
