Football League launches review of digital operations

The English Football League has commenced a review of its collective digital platforms through its wholly owned digital subsidiary Football League Interactive (FLi).

The organisation, which governs the three divisions below the Premier League – the Championship, League One and League Two – has today (Tuesday) invited companies specialising in providing sports-specific solutions for web and mobile platforms, delivering video/audio content and managing payments services to be part of this review process.

Agencies, sports technology firms and media companies wishing to tender can receive further information over the requirements by contacting the Football League.

In May, the Football League agreed a three-season deal, from 2015-16 to 2017-18, for ITN Productions to serve as its production partner. ITN Productions has the remit to film, edit and deliver all match footage for television broadcasts, along with digital clips and highlights content of Football League competitions for use by domestic and international broadcast partners and club websites that fall under its FLi network.
