FIH signs content partnership with Whisper Films

Sports production company Whisper Films has agreed a global content partnership with the International Hockey Federation (FIH).

Whisper Films will produce a new hockey magazine show that will be broadcast in regions around the world.

The program will feature new, original content from on-location shoots. The FIH had previously produced a magazine show based on existing broadcast event content.

Filming will take place across five continents and feature content covering all levels of hockey, from grassroots up to elite level, as well as build up to and action from major FIH events.

The FIH said its worldwide network of partners will broadcast the program via linear and digital channels.

The show will also be repurposed for the official FIH channel on video-sharing website YouTube, as well as for the organisation’s social media platforms.

Andy Oram, television and broadcaster director for the FIH, said: “This really is a giant step forward as we look to bring a full commercial focus to our live and additional programme content.”
