“This year on Seven and 7plus, The Voice [Australia’s #1 regular series of 2021], Dancing With The Stars: All Stars and Big Brother VIP joined our stable of hit tentpole entertainment shows, plus 7NEWS , Sunrise , Home and Away , Better Homes and Gardens and the most popular sports on TV.

“Next year, we are committing an additional $30 million to $40 million to new local productions and we will have 52 weeks of proven content.

“That content will include a stellar collection of returning shows, the Olympic Winter Games Beijing , the XXII Commonwealth Games , the AFL , the Supercars Championship including the Bathurst 1000, significantly more horse racing, and over a dozen new local and international shows for Channel 7, with more for 7mate. It’s an incredible and unbeatable line-up,” Mr Warburton said.

“As Australia re-opens, businesses and consumers are ready to kick start their lives. Seven’s impressive first quarter 2022 content, including the Olympic Winter Games Beijing , and our Kick Start 2022 packages will give our clients a real competitive edge and a strong share of voice.”

SPORT

The biggest sporting competitions in the world and in Australia will be on Seven in 2022, live and free.

In fact, they kick off before the New Year, when Seven’s 2021-22 summer of cricket swings into action.

Cricket fans are in for a very, very good summer. With the men’s and women’s Ashes series , the BBL and the WBBL , it is going to be the greatest ever season on Seven, Your Home of Cricket.

Cricket’s #1 commentary team just got even better, with Seven adding one of the game’s all-time greats – Lord Ian Botham – to its illustrious line-up for what is already shaping as an unforgettable 2021-22 season.

The straight-talking former England Test captain, and one of the best-ever all-rounders with 5,200 test runs and 383 wickets, will join Seven for all five Tests in Australia’s blockbuster Ashes series against England. Seven’s unrivalled team again be led by cricket’s most astute commentator, former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting.

In February, Seven, 7plus and 7NEWS.com.au will present the Olympic Winter Games Beijing , live, free and across multiple channels.

Following the extraordinary success of this year’s Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 , Seven will deliver the most comprehensive coverage of a Winter Olympics ever seen in Australia, in a favourable time zone for Australian viewers (there will be a two-hour time difference between Beijing and the Australian east coast).

In addition to presenting the Olympic Winter Games from 4 to 20 February, Seven and 7plus will also cover the Paralympic Winter Games from 4 to 13 March.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: “Tokyo 2020 was an extraordinary event for the world, for Australia, for our amazing Australian athletes and for Seven.

“We are honoured and excited to be able to present another Olympics so soon after Tokyo. The Olympic Winter Games Beijing promise to be spectacular and unforgettable, in terms of the locations, the venues, the action and the incredibly talented athletes who will gather from around the world.”

Less than five months after the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympic Winter Games, Seven and 7plus will be in Birmingham as the official Australian broadcast partner for the XXII Commonwealth Games , which will take place from 28 July to 8 August.

The XXII Commonwealth Games will bring together more than 4,500 athletes from 72 nations and territories in a global spectacle. Underpinned by the core values of humanity, equality and destiny, the Commonwealth Games are often referred to as the “Friendly Games” and are renowned for inspiring athletes to compete in the spirit of friendship and fair play.

Back home, the AFL returns to Seven in 2022. An extraordinary 2021 season cemented the AFL’s position as the #1 winter sport in Australia, including a history-making Grand Final that drew 3.91 million TV viewers to become the #1 program of the year. The 2022 season is shaping up to be unmissable.

Before the new AFL season kicks off, Seven will present all the action and excitement of season six of the AFLW , starting in early January.

Australia’s #1 footy show, The Front Bar , returns in 2022 with the always sharp and smart insights of hosts Sam Pang, Mick Molloy and Andy Maher. Also returning next year are Armchair Experts on Friday nights and Sunday Footy Fest .

The Supercars Championship roared back onto Seven and 7plus this year, with the promise of six blockbuster events a year. From the moment the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown round hit the screens of Seven in June, the fans have loved the fact Supercars are back where they belong, with TV ratings up 39% year-on-year. With the Repco Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama set to fire up on 5 December this year and lockdowns coming to an end, the 2022 season is firmly back on track.

Thoroughbred racing has been part of Seven’s DNA for more than five decades and a historic new agreement will see the very best of it shown live and free every Saturday of the year.

Seven has partnered with Racing Victoria, Racing NSW, Racing Queensland and Racing SA in a historic, long-term deal that unites Australian thoroughbred racing like never

before. The agreement runs to 2027 and means Australians will enjoy 52 weeks of elite racing across the nation, including the Golden Slipper, The Everest, the Golden Eagle, the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate, the Queensland Oaks, the Queensland Derby, the South Australian Derby and the South Australian Oaks and Goodwood Handicap.

Seven’s huge live and free sport line-up also includes the 2021 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race , which we hope goes ahead from 26 December as planned, and the rest of the 2021-22 NFL season on 7mate and 7plus – culminating with one of the world’s greatest events, the Super Bowl, on 13 February 2022.
