Champions League Final: 42-camera coverage for Man City v Inter Milan tie

Manchester City will take on Inter Milan in Turkey on Saturday as the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League reaches its conclusion.

Having lost in the 2021 Champions League Final to Chelsea, Man City will be attempting to win its first ever Champions League – and, having already secured the Premier League title and FA Cup, complete the ‘treble’.

Inter, meanwhile, has won the Champions League title a total of three times, most recently in 2010.

This year’s final will take place at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, which was due to host the 2020 and then the 2021 Champions League Finals but, due to Covid, both ties were switched to Lisbon.

UEFA has appointed Saran Media and EXXEN as host broadcaster for Saturday’s match, with Mediapro appointed as technical supplier. TV match director is Juan Figueroa.

The Final will be produced in HD, UHD-HDR and UHD-SDR. Dolby-E will be made available on the HD and UHD feeds, and Dolby Atmos available on the UHD feeds only.

UEFA has allocated the following unilateral broadcast facilities:

  • 132 TV, radio & social media commentary position desks
  • 7 Pitch View Studios and 12 Tribune Presentations Positions
  • 20 Pitch presentation positions
  • 12 Flash interview positions and 5 Super flash interview positions
  • 37 Unilateral camera positions behind goal and 10 social media cameras
  • 85km of optical fibre has been pulled by UEFA to deliver services to broadcast partners

The Final will boast a 42-camera coverage plan. Included in the camera plan this year are two RF cinestyle cameras, one to capture the reaction of Man City fans, while the other will be focused on Inter’s supporters.
