Sport 24 to air FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023
March 8, 2023
Sport 24, the live sports channel that’s available on airlines and cruise lines around the world, has announced a deal with FIFA to broadcast the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023.
The IMG-owned channel will show more than 90 hours of live coverage across 64 matches from the tournament taking place from July 20th to August 20th.
Last year, the channel broadcast more than 125 hours of coverage for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, which reached a total 5 million viewers across 800+ aircraft and 150+ cruise ships.
Richard Wise, SVP, Content and Channels for IMG’s media business, said: “Off the back of our best ever FIFA World Cup coverage, we’re delighted to add more thrilling international football to our global rights portfolio for our airline and cruise ship partners. The FIFA Women’s World CupÔ is set to be a global spectacle and now passengers can watch the very best sporting action even while travelling.”
The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023 will be the first edition that will be held in the Southern Hemisphere and co-hosted by two countries. The opening match will be contested between New Zealand and Norway at Eden Park in Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau, with defending champions the USA kicking off against Vietnam in the same stadium two days later.
Sport 24 is available to airlines on Panasonic Avionics’ Live Television product.
