The International Cricket Council (ICC) governing body has launched a tender in key territories for audio rights to all major ICC events through 2027.

The tender contains three packages – analogue, digital, and audio streaming rights in the UK and Ireland; the same rights in Australia; and audio streaming rights in India.

The process also allows bidders to “opt in to produce the audio world feed, at their own cost,” for ICC events across the next four years. The world feed producer will also be expected to produce archive podcasts of previous ICC men’s and women’s top-tier events.

The Dubai-based ICC has said that applicants should have “the appropriate experience, infrastructure, staffing, resources, capability, and financial standing,” to produce audio cricket tournament coverage.

This audio rights tender process has been launched with the ICC coming to the end of its TV rights sales for the next events cycle.
