The Digital Content Team
FIFA Host Broadcast, FIFA Films and FIFA Digital are responsible for the production of live feeds, films, documentaries, series and digital content for distribution to FIFA’s Media Rights Licensees and for use on FIFA’s social media channels.
Through original storytelling, the Digital Content team’s productions showcase series off the pitch – including Sheroes, which focuses on women using the beautiful game as a tool to inspire.
FIFA Films is the arm of FIFA TV responsible for the production of long-form content. The essence of its productions is the FIFA Films Archive, home to those indelible World Cup moments that fans of football have enjoyed for many years. From the first tournament in 1930 through to the latest in 2018, all of the great memories are stored in the archive. And not only that: the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ is major tournament in its own right with a proud history that is still unfolding, as do FIFA’s youth events and other tournaments. FIFA Films, then, clearly has a dual focus.
