Grup Mediapro supplies technical services for four UEFA Club Finals 2024

Grup Mediapro, through its Broadcast Media Services (BMS) department, secured collaboration agreements with broadcast partners of the major continental finals (UEFA Champions League Final, UEFA Europa League Final, UEFA Europa Conference League Final and UEFA Women’s Champions League Final) to provide production services and technical resources.

Dublin was the venue for the first of these decisive competitions, the UEFA Europa League, where Italian team Atalanta beat the Germans of Bayern Leverkusen 3-0 to claim the title. Saran Medya, the rights holder of the competition also in Ireland, relied on the expertise of Mediapro BMS and its teams to provide technical resources (three OB vans and 130 people) in order to handle the multilateral production of this match.

Three days later, the final in the Irish capital was followed by the UEFA Women’s Champions League final in Bilbao, Spain. Reigning champions Barcelona played in its fourth consecutive final and became the third team to win three titles, surpassing French team Lyon. This time, DAZN, which holds the global rights for the 2021-25 cycle, chose Mediapro BMS as technical supplier of the host broadcast in the San Mamés stadium. They relied on a technical team of two OB’s, 35 people and 17 cameras. Leading the production team was Portuguese Director Claudia Santos.

The group has also been contracted to offer support with various audiovisual services (two OB’s and a team of 35 people) during the unilateral production of the UEFA Europa Conference League final for CosmoteTV and Greek production company ABC, which took place at the AEK Arena in Athens on 29 May. Additionally, Mediapro BMS provided unilateral services through five OBs and 60 people at the UEFA Men’s Champions League, which was played at Wembley Stadium in London on 1 June, to Movistar+, TNT Brazil & Mexico, TV SBT Brazil and ESPN LATAM.

Overall, Grup Mediapro has deployed a significant operation across Europe, involving over 260 professionals, 11 OB trucks, and innovative special cameras.
