As part of their long-standing relationship with The Kennel Club, global sports and content business, Sunset+Vine, is thrilled to once again be at the helm of Crufts as broadcast partner for the 15th year – and continue to bring extensive experience to the much- loved canine competition.

As broadcast partner, Sunset+Vine team will bring over 15 hours of live coverage for Channel 4 and More4, across four days, as well as providing cut-down content for The Kennel Club’s YouTube channel. In addition,, Sunset+Vine will have a dedicated team providing a bespoke social media service that will create content and manage the social channels across all Kennel Club platforms.

Sunset+Vine has appointed global facilities provider EMG, who will provide innovative technical elements to bring the coverage to life.

Excitingly, for this year, Channel 4 have also commissioned two additional highlights shows from Sunset+Vine, that will take a look back at two of last year’s most popular events – Crufts Revisited 2023: Flyball, and Crufts Revisited 2023: Best in Show, which will air on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th March.

Claire Balding will return as main presenter alongside Sophie Morgan and Radzi Chinyanganya. The expert commentary team will be made up of Alison Mitchell, Laura Crombie, Frank Kane, Jim Rosenthal & Graham Partridge, and Ashleigh Butler will join the Agility commentary team.

Stephen Booth, Executive Producer for Crufts, Sunset+Vine, commented: “Sunset+Vine is delighted to have had such a long association with Crufts, and look forward to another four days of bringing viewers all the sights and sounds of a very special event”.

Helena Sykes, Executive Producer for Crufts Revisited, Sunset+Vine, added: “It’s fantastic to be commissioned to deliver this new programming to Channel 4, adding further to Sunset+Vine’s substantial Crufts content portfolio.”
