The 2012 Other FIFA Events (OFE) cycle began two weeks ago with the opening kick-off of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Japan 2012, the first match of which took place on 19 August in Miyagi. As part of its 2014 FIFA World Cup™ host broadcasting agreement with FIFA, HBS is responsible for providing various coordination and production services as well as all booking services relating to the 2011-2014 OFEs.
