A selection of the best European football directors will spearhead “Dream Team” production teams at every match to ensure the very best coverage of all the action, emotion and drama during the competition. As is usual for FIFA’s flagship competitions, FIFA TV’s broadcast production will be transmitted to territories all over the world.
FIFA and Japanese broadcaster NHK will also work together to produce ten matches in ultra-high definition 8K visuals, including the Final Match on July 5th. A separate team of producers will create dedicated content for mobile, tablets and laptops to meet increasing demand for match coverage on multimedia platforms.
FIFA Director of TV Niclas Ericson said: “FIFA expects hundreds of millions of fans around the world to tune in to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada and we are committed to ensuring that broadcasters and fans everywhere experience the tournament in the best way possible.”
“This is the biggest broadcast production we have invested in so far for a women’s football tournament. This supports FIFA’s commitment to develop and promote women’s football and it reflects the huge momentum and interest in women’s football around the world today.”
FIFA TV is FIFA’s award-winning broadcast production and servicing arm that handles the production and media rights of FIFA tournaments, providing broadcasters and fans with the very best match-viewing experience and delivering world-class football coverage to the widest audience possible.
