UKTV has secured the exclusive rights to broadcast the Ultimate Strongman: World Championship which will air on Dave at the end of the year
The tournament, which takes place at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena, will feature 12 of the world's strongest athletes competing over five events including Atlas Stones, Monster Tyre Flip and the Deadlift Challenge.
Presenting duties will be taken up by Matt Bell and World's Strongest Man 1989 Jamie Reeves, with commentary provided by Sky Sports' Nick Halling and Norwegian body-builder Svend Karlsen.
The two hour programme will be recorded in front of a live audience on 10 December, airing on Dave on 30 December.
“We’re hugely excited to have Ultimate Strongman on our channel," said Dave's general manager Steve North, "It’s another new step as we continue to bring more sport to free-to-air television, and is sure to entertain the whole family and be a great end to an excellent year for Dave.”
The news comes after Dave successfully bid for the rights to boxer David Haye's comeback match earlier this year. An audience of 3.2million tuned in to watch Haye Day, the channel's first ever sports broadcast.
In 2016, Dave has also aired the Caribbean Premier League cricket, and the British Darts Organisation's World Trophy.
Ultimate Strongman: Next Generation, the under-25 Strongman competition, was filmed in Canada earlier this year and will also air on Dave, on 29 December.
