The International Cricket Council (ICC) has today unveiled the tender process for the provision of production services and outside broadcast (OB) equipment services for the 2024-27 cycle.
The governing body has now made tender documents for these processes – which will cover the various major ICC events coming up over the next four years – available via request.
For the production services, applicants are expected to “have appropriate experience, infrastructure, staffing, resources, capability and financial standing to produce outstanding live cricket coverage,” with joint applications not an option. The chosen provider will produce the live feed from the necessary ICC events, as well as highlights programming.
The last broadcast production tender process issued by the ICC concluded in May 2019, with Sunset+Vine, the UK-based television sports production and media company, retaining its coveted position providing that service.
Companies should submit applications to email@example.com, with a deadline of February 12.
For the outside broadcast equipment services tender, meanwhile, interested parties need to have experience of supplying “state-of-the-art outside broadcast equipment,” and are expected “to own directly a substantial majority of the outside broadcast equipment which it would consider deploying for each ICC event.”

In terms of upcoming ICC events, the Men’s Under-19 Cricket World Cup is coming to its conclusion now, with the Men’s T20 World Cup then set for June 1 to 29 this year, across the Caribbean and the US.
The ICC is currently engaged in media rights tenders covering the 2024-27 cycle across its major markets, and earlier this week began broadcast rights processes in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh.
This comes with cricket’s governing body having already tied up broadcast rights deals for its next cycle in major markets such as the UK (Sky), the US (Willow TV), India (Star Sports), Australia, the Middle East and North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa (SuperSport).
Other key territories in which no media rights deals are yet in place for the next cycle include the Caribbean and New Zealand.
