The how

We worked with World Rugby to develop and implement a uniform host broadcast solution that included live production of each tournament alongside the delivery of additional content such as features, digital output and various feeds for World Rugby and third-party stakeholders.

At the heart of the reboot is an innovative concept for the live coverage that turns the last two hours of each day’s play into must-watch TV. Designed specifically for free-to-air broadcasters, The Super Session World Feed Programme showcases a mix of live match coverage, features and highlights from earlier in the day.

The Impact

World Rugby have been provided with event coverage that delivers a consistent look and feel at each event. This has significantly enhanced its appeal to both broadcasters and the global audience.
