A press release stated the new service, called ‘FIFA+’, would show “live matches from leagues around the world, news, information on competitions and unpublished video content.” Eventually, the world game’s governing body hopes to broadcast 40,000 lives games from all continents per year, including 11,000 women’s games per year.
Over 2,000 hours of archive footage from previous men’s and women’s World Cups will be included in the form of both full matches and highlights. New original content will also be added, such as news coverage, talk shows and documentaries, the first of which focuses on Brazilian legend Ronaldinho. By next June, FIFA+ is scheduled to be broadcast in 11 languages.
