Leading international broadcast production company Sunset+Vine has won the mandate for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Sunset+Vine has won the global bid to be the host broadcaster for the 2022 CWG in Birmingham. The bid process was completed on Monday.
The agreement includes a full-service delivery of every aspect of the Games, including more sports coverage than previous Commonwealth Games.
Sunset+Vine will be in charge for the live coverage of up to 2,000 hours across 19 sports disciplines for over 1.5 billion global audience.
“Sunset+Vine will also capture footage of the highly anticipated Opening and Closing Ceremonies, as well as producing additional feature content about the history of Birmingham and the Games,” read a statement from the organisers.
Multi-camera footage of the Games will be made available to rights holding broadcasters (RHBs) and distributed to TV channels across the world for a viewing experience to remember.
The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) announced a one-day delay in the start of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as the novel coronavirus pandemic had a ‘significant impact’ on the international sporting calendar.
The Games will now start on July 28, 2022 and conclude on August 8.
