NPO Sport (formerly Sport24) is a theme channel of the NPO. The channel was launched as Sport24 on 19 July 2009.[1][2] In the summer months the channel does reports of sporting events in which certain parts are not seen on the open channels of the NPO. These competitions, such as the World Cup/European Athletics Championships, World Cup/European Swimming Championships, World Equestrian Games, World Championships and Vuelta a España will be broadcast on this channel. This station only broadcasts during the Summer months on NPO Politiek. On 10 March 2014, Sport24 changed its name into NPO Sport.[3]
