Antenna TV receives broadcast rights for the 2022 FIFA World Cup
FIFA has granted Antenna TV exclusive media rights to broadcast the 2022 World Cup.
Greece’s free to air broadcaster will cover the tournament daily and broadcast all 64 games on its platforms.
Ant1TV will broadcast at least 32 games including the opening game, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.
“We are delighted to welcome a new partner for the rights to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Greece,” said Jean-Christophe Petit, FIFA’s Director of Media Rights and Content Services, last week.
“Antenna TV will provide extensive coverage of the event on its linear and digital platforms and ensure that this unique FIFA World Cup is unforgettable for all Greek fans,” he says.
Antenna TV is the first private television broadcaster in Greece to be granted the rights to broadcast the World Cup.
“We are delighted to be the first private TV station in Greece to broadcast this most important football event in the world and to give our viewers the opportunity to enjoy the greatest moments of the greatest football stars on the greatest stage of the sport for free,” says Stella Litou, General Manager of the Antenna Group.
The coverage will be broadcast live from host country Qatar, the very first Middle East country to host the FIFA World Cup in 22 years.
32 international teams will arrive in Qatar later in the year to compete for the title of world champion.
