Fri 4th Apr 2014 | Television & Broadcasting
FIFA has opened an invitation to tender (ITT) for media rights in the United Kingdom for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups™.
These rights cover TV, IPTV, internet, mobile and radio transmissions for FIFA’s flagship competition, which will be held in Russia in 2018 and Qatar in 2022.
“This tender is designed to help FIFA identify and select the media entity in the territory that is able to operationally secure the transmission commitments required by FIFA, as well as achieve FIFA’s overall objectives of reaching the widest possible audience and financial targets for our broader mission in football,” said Niclas Ericson, Director of FIFA’s TV Division, which is overseeing the tender procedure.
Media companies can request the ITT from the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The request needs to state the names and titles of those who will interact with FIFA in the procedure. Following a question and answer period lasting from 4-25 April 2014, submissions to FIFA must be received by 17.00 CET on 28 April 2014, whereupon negotiations with preferred bidders will open on 29 April.
More information on the broadcast coverage of the most recent FIFA World Cup™, namely South Africa in 2010, can be found on FIFA's TV Division homepage.
