SVT Sport broadcasts Gotland Grand National 2020 live!

Good news for all sports enthusiasts!

Nordic Sport & Event and SVT Sport have agreed to broadcast GGN again this year on Saturday 24 October. GGN has been broadcasting live broadcast on the channel since 2015 and the broadcast has developed every year. In 2019, about 4.5 hours were broadcast.

Before GGN 2020, it was uncertain for a long time whether there would even be a competition due to Pandemin COVID-19. On 21 August, Nordic Sport & Event was able to inform all GGN and enduro lovers via a press release that there will be a GGN again in 2020 with certain restrictions. Already the following week, the partners sat down in meetings to look at the possibilities of broadcasting GGN on SVT Sport.

  • For us as organizers of GGN, SVT Sport is a very important channel to reach out with the competition and the sport to the people. The relatives and sports enthusiasts have become accustomed to being able to follow the competition on TV during GGN on Saturday, says Conny Bohlin, CEO of Nordic Sport & Event and continues. When I contacted SVT Sport to tell them that GGN will get rid of it came as a big surprise to them as they have already canceled trips & accommodation to Gotland.
  • Jan Olsson at SVT Sport says that we are happy that GGN can be implemented and that through it we can produce and broadcast GGN as planned. GGN is a Swedish sports classic.
  • Of course very gratifying news for everyone who wants to follow GGN closely and especially now that we currently can not and must not take in the audience in the area during the Pandemic, says Conny Bohlin.
