NEP Italy takes on new role as AS Roma content production partner
NEP Italy has entered into an agreement with AS Roma to be its exclusive production partner for all AS Roma home games and all productions of the Club.
These additional productions of the Club include Youth League, Under 19 Championship & National Cup and Women’s matches as well as all Roma Studio content.
Further, NEP will become the exclusive managed services provider for AS Roma’s 24-hour playout channel, Roma TV HD, which broadcasts live updates of training sessions, exclusive interviews with players and management, press conferences with the head coach, live Serie A and Champions League pre- and post-match commentary, as well as pre-recorded information, insights and entertainment around the clock.
Founded in 1927, AS Roma is one of the biggest football teams in Europe. Competing in Serie A, Italy’s top division, the Club has won the domestic title three times. Roma’s colours are the famous Giallorosso (Yellow and Red), like the city’s, while playing home games in Rome’s historic Stadio Olimpico.
These two exclusive agreements with AS Roma support NEP’s long-term strategy to grow its presence in the Italian and Southern Europe market. This year, NEP opened its NEP Italy office in May, acquired Telerecord, a leading Italy sports outside broadcast technical provider, in June, and added OB vans equipped with 40 cameras and satellite transmission technology from Rome-based Top Tech Services in July.
“Partnering with AS Roma offers NEP a tremendous opportunity to leverage our football broadcast experience and technology for one of Europe’s premier football clubs,” said Paul Henriksen, President, NEP Europe. “Our agreement with AS Roma continues NEP’s move to become the world’s leading Media Solutions provider, strengthening our relationships and service offering in this very vital geographic market.
“We hope this further demonstrates the great potential of NEP Italy, and our ability to provide the best resources available to our clients here and around the globe.”
