Input Media, the London-based sports specialists, has been retained as The FA’s broadcast production partner in a new three year deal following a competitive tender process.
Under the agreement, which starts next season and runs to 2021, Input Media will continue to provide a range of production and technical services to The FA, including live programming for The FA’s international rights-holders, live match coverage and highlights shows of each and every round of The Emirates FA Cup.
In addition, Input Media will also produce their innovative FA Cup Saturday Super-feed featuring several live games for international takers, along with a substantial increase of social and promotional content to support the competition.
Tom Gracey, The FA’s Senior Broadcast Manager, said: “We are delighted to continue our production relationship with Input Media. They continue to demonstrate that they can deal with the demands of our growing international business. At a time of significant change in the broadcast world, their record of delivering live and post produced coverage has evolved from merely producing linear television feeds for us to now producing hundreds of hours of clipped and digitised content for our international markets.
The new agreement means Input Media will have been The FA’s broadcast production partner for 13 consecutive years.
