I'm sure that someone knows but what, apart from affectation, is the reason for the highly disproportionate typeface being used for the WWC 2019 by the organisers, as reflected in this graphic by the BBC?





It's the font they are using on anything that comes under Change the Game, which is basically all women's sport this summer.

Watch it and find out.

So are all Womens World Cup games being presented on location - that's something which doesn't happen with the mens tournament. Indeed last year I think even the England knock-out games were from the central studio.

Have FIFA got an IBC for this?
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Just the matches on ‘proper’ channels, the others just use world feed comms.

One your just doing one match a day and it’s on the other side channel it’s probably cheaper to do all it all from the stadium. It’s probably easier and cheaper to get a presentation position in the stand for the Women’s World Cup than it is the men’s.

There is an IBC.

Fox at the IBC
This is the first time that a Women’s World Cup has had a proper building for its International Broadcast Centre (in 2015, the IBC was housed in office trailers). Although Fox has a relatively small footprint of only 300 square metres, it will pack a lot of technical punch. NEP UK, as it did in Russia last year, is providing the equipment and technical support.

The IBC is where the VAR officials are based.

During the Knockouts surely they will be days when both matches are either on BBC1/BBC2/BBC4.
And Friday will surely see Japan v Scotland and England v Argentina both presented from their respective stadiums considering both are on BBC1.

Not sure how much of it is available, there's at least 10mins worth though, but it seems that the old UHD Test loop available on the BBC iPlayer (in Beta Mode) has been replaced by coverage of the 2018-19 FA Cup Final as transmitted live in May. There's no rewind available to check.

Amazon did very well out of that first midweek, not many match weeks you get two games as big as Man Utd v Spurs and Liverpool v Everton. Less so on Boxing Day but that usually tends to be the case. Some decent games for BT's midweeks too, one of which falls on New Year's Day, which I don't think was anticipated. Not bad for a late, comparitively "cheap" buy in the auction process.

Lots of new things next season - change of kick-off times for the broadcasters, those midweeks with all 20 games for Amazon and 15 out of 20 for BT, and the winter break with all 10 games over 2 weekends broadcast.

Fells like Boxing day is deliberately quite week to appease Sky. The Midweek one is probably more important to Amazon anyway being before Christmas.
