Euro 2024: UEFA’s ENG crews at the ready

With UEFA set to deliver over 3,500 hours of content to its broadcast partners during Euro 2024, 40 ENG crews have been tasked with capturing a variety of content throughout the tournament.

UEFA said its editorial content plan for Euro 2024 will provide “a wealth of HD content including packaged and raw footage to broadcast partners, allowing them to beyond the boundaries of regular match coverage and the tournament period itself”.

In-tournament material, including raw footage of team training sessions, player interviews, city and fan activations, among other content, will be gathered by the ENG teams.

Some 24 of the 40 ENG crews will be based close to each of the team base camps around Germany, with ten other crews to gather footage from the host cities and the remaining six set to produce dedicated content for the UEFA Euro 2024 sponsor partners.

UEFA will task 100 of its 2,300 staff at the editorial content services (ECS) hub in London with turning the ENG teams’ footage into completed feature stories, news reports and team statistic graphics: ready-to-air programming that broadcasters and other stakeholders can use immediately. Editorialised clips and curated ISO compilations will also be produced from the IBC, where all content will also be logged.

The ECS post-production team is located at UEFA’s London hub and has direct access to all UEFA live programming, as well as being connected to the server at the IBC to which the 40 ENG crews contribute.
