Like wildfire, the announcement is already spreading throughout the continent and the world that the inaugural version of the Cali 2021 Junior Pan American Games will be free of television rights.
This was announced by Panam Sports this week, so there will be no restrictions for the media or national Olympic committees that want to broadcast everything that happens in the first continental multisport event for young people.
“The objective will be to disseminate the event to the maximum, that it is seen in the largest number of countries, that people can enjoy the sport and that everyone knows the stars of today and tomorrow of our continent,” said Neven Ilic, president of Panam Sports.
The governing body of sport in the region made a significant investment and agreed with the Colombian channel TelePacífico to broadcast live for all of America and the world, from each venue of the event and through the Panam Sports Channel.
It was also known that there will be two clean signals that will be broadcast via satellite so that they can be used for free.
The fair will receive more than 3,800 athletes under 23 years of age to compete in 39 sports; meanwhile, Cuba secured 159 (in 24 disciplines) and continues to await the closing of the qualifying processes of other modalities such as judo and athletics.
