UEFA Super Cup

Posted on:

The UEFA Super Cup is an annual football match contested by the reigning champions of the two main European club competitions: the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. That meant another Battle of Britain for home supporters last night, as European Champions Liverpool took on Europa League winners Chelsea.

Once again, Istanbul proved a happy hunting ground for Liverpool, as they beat the Blues 5–4 on penalties after the teams couldn’t be separated after 120 minutes of normal play. It also marked the end of a crazy week for Liverpool’s new keeper Adrian, who was unemployed just nine days ago, and is now a Super Cup winner.

A team from Gearhouse Broadcast UK was onsite in Istanbul too, setting up the Technical Operations Centre (TOC), as well as a full host commentary system and FanTV facilities.

As with the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals, we built the TOC around an IP core, which involved a lot less cabling than traditional systems – making the installation quicker, simpler and more versatile. An IP core also means greater scalability and decentralised resources, not to mention future-proofing the production to format changes.


On 31 October 2019, the four leading broadcast and production houses Gearhouse Broadcast, Hyperactive Broadcast, Input Media and Chief Entertainment owned by Gravity Media Group started trading under the brand name of ‘Gravity Media’. All Gravity Media companies around the world are making this transition and will now go to market as a single brand with a bold new look and purpose.
