The BBC has appointed London-based sports independent Input Media to produce coverage of this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup to be held in France. Input Media will produce live programming for broadcast on the BBC’s network TV channels, BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website. The tournament runs from June 7th to July 7th 2019.
The contract, secured after a competitive tender process, represents an extension of the company’s relationship with the BBC. Input Media produced coverage of this tournament from Canada in 2015 and currently produces the FA Cup Goals Exchange for the BBC.
Input Media’s Head of Programmes, Frank Callaghan said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this prestigious work, which extends our relationship with the BBC. The FIFA Women’s World Cup is an established event in the sporting calendar and we are proud and privileged to be involved, providing top quality production, broadcast and technical services.”
