The Football Association has retained Input Media as its broadcast production partner with a new three year deal.
It means Input Media will continue to provide the FA with a range of production and technical services, including live programming for the FA’s international rights-holders, live match coverage and highlights shows of each and every round of the FA Cup.
The three year deal runs from 2019.
Input Media will also produce an FA Cup Saturday ‘Super-feed’ featuring several live games for international broadcasters, as well as an increase in 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.
“Our new agreement will ensure that our international broadcast of the FA Cup continues to be of the highest standard and we look forward to working with Input Media on further ways to enhance the product for our licensees.”
