Sunset+Vine sells ECB archive
September 2, 2014
Sunset+Vine, the multi-award winning UK independent TV sports production and media company, has confirmed its appointment by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to represent the ECB in a four year archive rights deal.
The extensive ECB archive includes rights for all England internationals and domestic matches played in England and Wales, from 1995 to the present day to the end of the 2013 season, as well as international rights for these games pre-1995. The ECB archive covers Test matches, One Day Internationals, Twenty-20s and all county cricket competitions.
Sunset+Vine will not only be representing rights deals for the ECB’s archive, but will also be developing the ECB catalogue as well as producing bespoke programming opportunities for broadcasters drawn from existing archive footage.
Andrew Piller, Commercial Director at Sunset+Vine, commented:
“The ECB is one of the world’s flagship sports brands and we’re delighted to be representing their rights. Sunset+Vine has a strong heritage in English cricket having produced award-winning programming for C4, and subsequently Channel Five, since 1999 as well as introducing Hawkeye as an integral tool for the modern game. We are proud of what we have contributed to the game and we are confident that we will continue to do so for many years to come.”
