A team from Gearhouse Broadcast France was recently onsite at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca for the 2019–20 Arab Club Champions Cup. The Arab Club Champions Cup is effectively the Arabian Champions League – an annual regional football competition organised by the Union of Arab Football Associations (UAFA) and contested by elite clubs from around the Arab world. The tournament is contested by a total of 38 teams: 19 from the Asian Football Confederation and 19 from the Confederation of African Football.

Qualifying took place from 18 to 25 August, and the competition proper runs from 20 August 2019 – 18 April 2020: a knockout format with home and away legs, until the final, which is a one-leg match played at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, Morocco.

Gearhouse France has been supplying a complete turnkey Host Broadcast production at the Stade Mohammed V, featuring nine cameras and including all the creative and operational crew. The first two matches of the knockout phase were Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya vs Al-Salmiya, and Shabab Al-Ordon vs Étoile du Sahel – both played on 29 August. The Gearhouse team will also cover the second legs on 24 September.
