EUROPEAN PRO TOUR SEASON 2022 TOUR-WIDE MEDIA PLAN CONFIRMED
EPT has finalized the tour-wide media plan for the season 2022. The plan was build priorizing consistency, quality, and availibility of different Media Teams combined with Disc Golf Stream live broadcasting needs and demands.
While the tour-wide plan is confirmed we start to build media plans for single events even that few of the events already have multiple teams creating content for the fans.
LEAD CARD PLAY-TO-PLAY FROM BOTH DIVISIONS
EPT and MDG Media have signed a contract for the whole 2022 season regarding MPO and FPO lead card coverage rights. On every EPT event and every round there will be post-produced play-by-play video released from both division lead cards filmed by MDG Media.
The MPO card(s) will be filmed with multiple cameras both to live and post-productions and will be edited to a play-by-play video to MDG:s Youtube channel.
FPO:s Lead Card whole round will be filmed with minimum of two cameras and edited to a play-by-play video and released in Disc Golf Stream’s own Youtube channel for free.
Maxime Tanghe, founder and Media Coordinator of MDG Media
“We are so proud of being part of the media and live team for EPT. Filming the best players of Europe is something we didn’t see coming when we started the adventure a year and a half ago.
The goal is huge, we can think about the future and the development of the sport far more seriously now.
“MDG Media’s vision to share disc golf around the world is in line with ours and with their dedication and enthusiasm towards creating content for the people we are able to serve the fans in Europe and North America. The quality of their production is already high level and enjoyable to watch and will only be better from event to event.
Disc Golf Stream will also use their camera feeds for the live broadcast and we will have an amazing team together with NBDG, MDG Media, and other media teams and media freelancers. Having the same crew from event-to-event speeds up the learning curve and we are able to react to all feedback faster and more efficient than you can expect and this will not only be limited to the EPT but many other top-tier tournaments in Europe.
-Juha Kytö, EPT Media Manager and CEO
SINGLE EVENT MEDIA COVERAGE
For single events we have great opportunities for Media Teams to cover highly interesting cards of MPO2 and forward. At Copenhagen Open we will have a local media team KJ Disc producing the MPO2 card and in EPT All-Stars the Spanish team Zona Disc Golf will have the MPO2 coverage rights.
All other events and cards are open for media teams and there is some negotiations going on with few teams around Europe.
If your Media Team is interested on producing content from the EPT you can contact the EPT Media Manager Juha Kytö and ask more.
OTHER MEDIA COVERAGE
Each EPT event will have a free live broadcast from the Press Conference on last practice day. All media teams and press have the possibility to join the conference and produce material from it.
All the media teams above and many local freelancers and teams are also producing content around the events and courses throughout the season. To keep up on what is happening the best way is to follow all EPT social media channels as we are going to repost and share everything regarding EPT events and the venues the events are played on.
