July 30, 2010 — In addition to the 600,000 spectators expected on-site at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, millions more will have the opportunity to watch on NBC Sports as the network provides an unprecedented six and a half hours of coverage over three Sundays.
The three days of coverage will be on NBC the three Sundays of the event: one hour on opening Sunday, September 26 at 12 p.m. ET; three hours on October 3 at 1 p.m. ET (immediately following live coverage of the Ryder Cup golf tournament); and two hours on October 10 at 4 p.m. ET.
NBC’s programming will include coverage of the world championships in each of the eight equestrian disciplines of the Games, as well as coverage of opening and closing ceremonies. Additionally, NBC Sports holds the digital rights for the event, making it available on multiple platforms, including mobile and live streaming on NBCSports.com.
