Record number of broadcasters to attend Chelsea v Man City

Fri 30th Jan 2015 | Television & Broadcasting

On Saturday, Stamford Bridge will play host to record number of broadcasters attending a Barclays Premier League match

The action on the pitch between Chelsea and Manchester City will be made available to Barclays Premier League fans all over the world like never before as 26 television crews cover the match in person.

NBC Sports (USA), beIN Sports (Middle East and North Africa), NowTV (Hong Kong), ESPN Brasil and Viasat Sweden will send reporters and crews to the match, as will the Premier League’s Kazakhstan rights holder, KazSport, who will be making their first visit to a Barclays Premier League match. 

There will be 24 international rights-holders in attendance, including Premier League Productions, in addition to UK broadcasters Sky Sports and BBC Sport.

The previous record was set at Manchester City v Manchester United on 30 April 2012 in another match between the sides placed first and second in the Barclays Premier League. Nineteen television rights-holders sent crews and commentators to that fixture. 

Our partners at Premier League Productions are responsible for making sure the footage of the match is available to all of our broadcasters around the world. The match will be broadcast to 650 million homes in 175 countries.
