Fox Sports, Twitter Plan To Expand Coverage For Women’s World Cup France

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

January 8, 2019: Fox Sports, the official FIFA World Cup U.S. English broadcast rights-holder through 2026, said it has expanded its alliance with Twitter for this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 (June 7-July 7).

The move follows the 2018 FIFA Men’s World Cup collaboration between Fox Sports and Twitter.

Fox Sports said its FIFA World Cup NOW show will return as FIFA Women’s World Cup NOW, live from Paris every match day, broadcasting exclusively on Twitter in the U.S

The show features a Fox Sports roster of experts and personalities, highlights and fan interaction.

A new show segment, driven by Fox Sports’ on-air personalities, will focus on calls-to-action that solicit user-generated conversations tied to relevant themes and hash tags.

During live matches, Fox Sports Twitter feeds will again post every tournament goal just moments after it is scored.

New to this year’s agreement will be pre-tournament content offering exclusive access to the U.S. Women’s National Team’s SheBelieves Cup, featuring teams from Brazil, England, Japan and the U.S.(Feb. 27-March 5).

The new deal also includes weekly in-tournament Q&As with Fox Sports talent and athletes and FIFA World Cup-specific Twitter Moments.

“After an amazing 2018 World Cup with Twitter that exceeded expectations, we are thrilled to expand our partnership."
 
“As the leader in live sports, Fox Sports will be bringing fans the seminal event of the summer — Team USA’s attempt to become back-to-back FIFA Women’s World Cup champions,” David Katz, evp-digital for Fox Sports, said via the network.

“After an amazing 2018 World Cup with Twitter that exceeded expectations, we are thrilled to expand our partnership to bring soccer fans closer to the storylines and personalities that will captivate them.”
 
Ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Fox Sports Twitter feeds will also feature U.S. Women’s National Team player countdowns, memorable moments and international athlete features with Fox Sports personalities.

According to Kay Madati, vp and global head of content partnerships for Twitter., After last summer’s successful Twitter/Fox Sports programming collaboration, this expanded effort will bring our engaged audience even closer to the action and top stories from this seminal event in France.”
