Sportcal.com Publishes Mini-Report on the ICC’s Media Rights and the Cricket World Cup
In the week before the start of the 2007 Cricket World Cup, Sportcal.com announces the publication of a brand-new, 11-page commercial mini-report: The ICC’s Media Rights and the Cricket World Cup, available both online via PDF and as a hard copy.
In December last year, the International Cricket Council signed a landmark media rights deal with ESPN Star Sports, the pan-Asian broadcaster, that doubled the value of its previous deal.
The mini-report covers the new seven-year deal and also gives a breakdown of the commercial rights deals agreed for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and other competitions covered by the previous global rights deal with Global Cricket Corporation.
It charts the growth in the commercial value of ICC tournaments since the start of the decade and describes how this culminated in a competitive bidding process for the new period.
During the tender process doubt was cast on the ICC's ambitions to break the billion-dollar barrier with the sale of its rights, but the organisation succeeded in its aim.
The mini-report tells the story of the competing commercial forces that led to the agreement of the new media rights deal, together with the media rights arrangements for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and other events in the previous rights deal, including the Champions Trophies of 2006 and 2004 and the 2003 Cricket World Cup.
There is also a section detailing ESPN Star Sports’ complete sports rights portfolio. The mini-report concludes with contact details for the ICC and ESPN Star Sports.
The ICC’s Media Rights and the Cricket World Cup is the first in a new series of mini-reports from Sportcal.com published under the banner THE SPORTS MARKET Insight. The mini-reports aim to analyse developments in the sports market in a concise format packed with facts and figures that tells you all you need to know in a quick, easy-reference guide.
They are available instantly in PDF electronic form once an online purchase is made.
