Move Media joins ESPN team to deliver 2014 FIFA World Cup

Written by 

The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil kicks off on 12 June with the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo hosting the opening match between hosts Brazil and Croatia. The planning and logistics that go into delivering the World Cup to its global audience extends beyond the bricks, mortar, Budweiser and McDonalds. The broadcasting of the tournament serves up challenges that require a high level of expertise and a constant redevelopment and creation of equipment. Few events come close to the demand put on the broadcasting industry by a FIFA World Cup


With 12 host cities (Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Cuiaba, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Natal, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Sao Paulo) all controlled from the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) located at the Riocentro exhibition complex in the Barra da Tijuca neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro the broadcasting of the 2014 edition is a mammoth undertaking.


MoveMedia, a part of the Caban Group of Companies, have for the second time been contracted by ESPN to assist with various specialist elements of the broadcast. The company is led by Mark van Hoff, who comes from a background of technical planning, budgeting and film schedule organisation of major live events. He has worked in many facets of the industry from technical to production – specialising in producing/directing live broadcast and events.


After a highly successful 2010 World Cup in South Africa we are very excited to have Move Media once again a part of the greatest sporting event on the planet. The multi-million dollar question is: will Brazil go all the way to win a World Cup at home? With all the drama and expectation in the build up to the tournament we are all certain that the entertainment and excitement will only grow!
