World Orienteering Championships to be broadcast worldwide

Posted on | June 22, 2017 | Category: News

The Nokian Tyres World Orienteering Championships, WOC, held in Estonia 1 – 7 July, will be broadcast throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The championships will be broadcast live in Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Sweden. Highlights programs will be broadcast in 139 countries around the world.

– We are very happy that we have been able to further increase the visibility of orienteering and WOC through several new broadcasting deals, says Tom Hollowell, IOF CEO. We have also established a consistent quality in our live productions and are glad to see a continued interest from core markets. We are still awaiting last-minute answers from several other broadcasting partners, among others in North America, so the above numbers might grow slightly.

Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Sweden will send the full live package including all medal races. Switzerland is receiving the full live package to tape to create their own programming and the Czech Republic will broadcast overall highlights.
– As an organiser, we are very happy that this fantastic event and views of beautiful Estonia will be broadcast to such a big audience in many parts of the world. It’s proof that orienteering is a growing TV sport and proof of our many years of dedication to make this event happen, says Markus Puusepp, event director WOC 2017.

In addition, through a partnership with Broadreach Media, highlights programs from each event in the IOF Orienteering World Cup (including the Nokian Tyres World Orienteering Championships) will be broadcast in another 137 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

And of course, the full live productions will also be available globally via LIVE Orienteering.
