With women’s football increasingly gaining global respect and TV audiences, London-based independent production house Input Media has scored handsomely with a contract to produce the BBC’s coverage of this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The tournament will be held in France from 7 June to 7 July 2019 and Input Media will produce live programming for broadcast on the BBC’s network TV channels, the BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website. The new contract represents an extension of Input’s relationship with the BBC after having produced coverage of the last edition of the tournament in Canada in 2015. It also currently produces the FA Cup Goals Exchange for the BBC.

Input Media also worked on behalf of HBS at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, and believes that the award of the FIFA Women’s World Cup underlines its ‘impressive’ football production credentials. These include live coverage and highlights from every round of The FA Cup, England internationals at Wembley, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League content.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded this prestigious work, which extends our relationship with the BBC,” remarked Input Media head of programmes, Frank Callaghan. “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.”
