Commonwealth Games

Host Broadcast coverage of 19 sports from 15 UK venues

The brief

To deliver the host broadcast of the UK’s largest multi-sport event since London 2012 in an innovative, reliable and sustainable way. As well as the live coverage of all 19 sports across the 11 days of competition we’ll be producing a 24/7 Games Channel showing the best of the action at any given time plus a Multi Channel Service, highlights shows and additional content.

The how

We have completely reinvented the traditional host broadcast model for the digital age to serve rights holders who are adopting new remote production techniques. This involved building bespoke plans around the latest technology which will allow broadcasters to bring the Commonwealth Games to life no matter where they are based around the world.

Alongside 1,500 hours of coverage of 19 different sports, we have also launched an ambitious training scheme designed to address the lack of diversity in sports production. Our Host Broadcast Training Initiative (HBTI) offered over 200 placements on our productions, as well as industry-level training to under-represented groups.

The Impact

The Birmingham 2022 broadcast will be the most creatively-innovative edition in the rich and varied history of the Commonwealth Games with sustainability at the heart of every decision process.
