To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, if he will hold discussions with representatives of British Cycling on the effect on the sport of Sky's decision to withdraw sponsorship for Team Sky.
17 December 2018
Sky’s withdrawal from their sponsorship of cycling at the end of 2019 is a commercial decision for them to make. Interest and participation in cycling across the UK has increased greatly since Team GB and ParalympicsGB’s wonderful achievements at London 2012. UK Sport’s support for British Cycling during the current Tokyo 2020 funding cycle remains unaltered by this decision.
