We’re feeling a little like the cool kids on the playground because we’ve just teamed up with three new major partners!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have heard that the AFC Asian Cup 2015 is being held in Australia! We are joining forces with three international television networks — BeIN Sports, Al Arabiya, and Roya TV — to make sure spectators around the world, and especially those in the MENA area, don’t miss out on any of the action.
BeIN Sports is the sporting arm of world-renowned news network Al Jazeera and holds the rights to an impressive list of show-stopping sporting events around the world. The network is the only Middle Eastern network to hold the exclusive rights to broadcast Asian Cup 2015 games, making them the go-to guy for everything AC2015 in the coming weeks.
Owned by The Middle East Broadcasting Center Group, Al Arabiya is a highly respected network in the MENA area which broadcasts the latest in the world of sport, as well as current affairs, finance, business, entertainment and documentaries.
Roya TV is one of only two Jordanian television networks and was recently created to cater to the modern day audience. Aside from sport, the newcomer broadcasts content such as news, talk shows, documentaries and entertainment shows.
At Mo Works we will be working with reporters from these television networks to make sure soccer-crazed fans across the globe get their fix of Asian Cup 2015. We have been filming training sessions, conferences, and interviews with coaches, players and fans, to make sure we don’t miss a beat. We even have exclusive footage of the friendly match between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia that took place on 30 December 2014 at Simonds Stadium (Geelong - Australia). Working on site and rubbing shoulders with the world’s soccer champions is hard, but someone’s got to do it!
Each network receives their own unique package of footage to suit their area of interest in the tournament. We have been keeping a keen eye on the Saudi Arabian team for Al Arabiya, shooting exclusive footage of the Jordanian team for Roya TV and filming all the latest developments in the tournament for BeIN Sports. We are also putting our producer’s hats on to make sure we are meeting all the time demands of the newsroom.
This is an extremely exciting new challenge for us, so stay tuned for some peeks behind the scenes of Asian Cup 2015!
