So, where do we think the BBC and ITV studios will be?

Clearly, England/Wales games will be anchored from the stadiums, but the other matches?
Salford (BBC) and Maidstone (ITV)?

I would expect. Gives the BBC a chance to have a play around in their VR studio. I guess the only other option would be treat the UK as the host nation and have a studio outside Wembley stadium. Where will the IBC based?

Official intro:

The music is made by Martin Garrix. The full song will be released in the coming months, including vocals. Bit the same as in 2016 when David Guetta made the theme song.

RTÉ have released a invitation of interest to sub-licence some games from Euro 2020 to other broadcasters in the Republic of Ireland.

https://about.rte.ie/uefa-euro-2020-finals/

Quote:
Raidió Teilifís Éireann (“RTÉ) is inviting expressions of interest for sub-licence of a package of matches from the UEFA EURO 2020 Finals for live audio-visual transmission within the Republic of Ireland.

Requests to receive the Invitation to Tender document (the “ITT”) should be addressed to Declan McBennett, Group Head of Sport, RTÉ by e-mail to: Declan.McBennett@rte.ie by no later than 5pm on 24th January 2020. The emails should be clearly referenced as “Expression of Interest” and marked “Private & Confidential”.

Note that persons who request the ITT must include in their request details of the audio-visual platform(s) on which they would be proposing to transmit sub-licensed matches in the Republic of Ireland and their control of or access to those audio-visual platform(s) and RTÉ reserves the right not to provide the ITT to persons who do not show to RTɒs satisfaction control of or access to such audio-visual platform(s) for this purpose.

In addition, no person shall be entitled to receive the ITT (or take part in the bidding process) without signing a non-disclosure agreement with RTÉ in a form acceptable to RTÉ.

RTÉ currently intend to issue the ITT to interested parties on Monday 27th January 2020 and any questions, queries or clarifications on the ITT should be submitted to RTÉ by email to: Declan.McBennett@rte.ie by no later than 5pm on Wednesday 29th January 2020. RTÉ reserves the right to circulate (while withholding the identity of the enquirer) to all interested parties who have received the ITT any answers or clarifications that RTÉ may elect to provide to any such questions, queries or clarifications.

RTÉ currently intend that the deadline for bids to be submitted to RTÉ in response to the ITT will be not later than 5pm on Friday 7th February 2020.

These dates are subject to change at the discretion of RTÉ.

Any proposed sub-licence will be subject to the approval of UEFA and also be subject to compliance by the sub-licensee with UEFA requirements which include without limitation certain broadcast, presentation, technical, and commercial obligations and restrictions.

RTÉ shall not be obliged to grant any sub licence.

This is no more than a request for an expression of interest and constitutes neither a contract nor an offer which is capable of acceptance by any person.

This web page and any correspondence from RTÉ pursuant to it does not contain any representation upon which any person is entitled to rely at any point in time in order to bring any claim, action or proceedings against the RTÉ (whether for misrepresentation or otherwise).


This was inevitable because the games can either go to Virgin Media Ireland or TG4.

The costs on the other hand could be quite prohibitive for TG4 to take some games because the matches from the men's tournament. RTÉ probably could not afford to show all of the games of the tournament at once because of their financial troubles that were announced from last year. I would assume VM will take the sub-licensed games again like what they have done for Euro 2016. But the package for these games being awarded is not known yet until someone gets their hands on the tender that offers the games for this year's tournament. The package once again does not include the Republic of Ireland matches, because RTÉ has those games, if the team qualifies after they win their matches in the play-offs.

What does anyone think about it?

Does that chime with some posts I've seen on social media that were trialling remote UK match production from a UK control room elsewhere but with equipment in the Netherlands?

I'd not heard that - but I think the BBC and ITV are planning on anchoring from the UK, so it doesn't make sense to have a massive footprint in the Netherlands.

I believe the BBC are certainly planning on having their anchor team in the UK. Not sure about ITV though.

It wouldn’t make sense for them to be based anywhere else really.

For the full thing or will they be flying them out to the stadiums for the Quarters? (as the semis and final are at Wembley I assume they will be on location)

On location for the Wembley matches.
