FIFA says that the upcoming Women’s World Cup, held June 26 – July 17, will mark “unparalleled” television coverage from a production and distribution standpoint.
Selected matches will feature 18 cameras with spider and helicopter cams. All matches will have the usage of in-goal and stead-cams.
FIFA adds that virtual graphics will also be provided to support broadcasters so fans can enjoy a viewing experience on a par with the men’s game.
“We have never seen coverage on a scale like this before in women’s football. It shows our commitment towards improving the media production of the world’s premier women’s football competition. The football on the pitch will be great, and we want to be sure the fans receive the best-quality images and presentation of the matches,” said Niclas Ericson, Director of FIFA TV.
