Representatives of the Directorate of the 2nd European Games, the National Olympic committee, Belarus National State TV and Radio Company, as well as interested ministries and departments, examined in detail the proposals of all the applicants. Apart from Spanish ISB, the interest in broadcasting was voiced by Medialuso-Mediapro (Portugal) and Match TV (Russia). Price and experience are one of the main criteria when the commission made its decision. Also, great attention was given to the reputation of companies, their marketing appeal, the possibility of further implementation of media rights, financial guarantees and legacy. Belarusian specialists should be maximally involved in working process during the event.
– The decision is made. Now the management of the 2nd European Games and ISB company are preparing a formal contract. This process is very painstaking and will take about two months, said Anatoly Kotov, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the 2nd European Games 2019.
Selected Spanish company also was the host broadcaster for the European games in Baku. In the ISB’s record of accomplishment are the Olympic Games, world and European championships and other major sporting events. A full list of all its activities is available here.
