FIM on the look out for a Supercross World Championship promoter

Feld Entertainment have decided to move the AMA Supercross series away from the FIM for the future but the FIM are on the look out of a promoter to run a Supercross World Championship.

The FIM have released a six-page document detailing exactly what they want from interesting parties to run the World Championship.  It looks like they want SX events in Europe and are interested in a long term deal from as soon as next year to 2031.

The document hints at races in Europe as well as outside so it would be a true world championship. “Competition format, number of riders, calendar (e.g. minimum number of events per year, number of events outside Europe)”, the document stated.

There had been calls for the AMA series to go global since it had the backing of the FIM at the time with Chad Reed a supporter of taking the event beyond North America. Now, with a ten-year agreement it looks like the FIM mean business with their vision for a world supercross series and the winning promoter will be instructed to ensure free-to-air television coverage is in place in each country where a race is held.

With MXGP being the priority for motocross riders and AMA Supercross currently being the priority for supercross riders, it will be interesting to see who will race the series and especially in 2022 as it’s just around the corner! Manufactures have already got budgets etc, in place so it’s certainly ambitious.
