The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ was HBS’ fifth FIFA World Cup™ as Host Broadcaster.
Basic principles for an agreement between FIFA and HBS were set in 2005 and transformed into a long-form agreement signed on 12 February 2006. Under the ongoing agreement, Host Broadcast Services AG was contracted for the provision of all host broadcast aspects of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017, and general assistance for the 2015-2018 OFEs.
The agreement covered both the provision of the host broadcast multilateral coverage and the provision of unilateral services and facilities offered to MRLs who signed the Media Rights Agreement with FIFA, whether radio and television broadcasters, or broadband and mobile operators.
