FA Community Shield

A crowd of 53,000 fans returned to Wembley Stadium on Saturday 7 August for this year’s Community Shield match which saw FA Cup winners Leicester City triumph 1-0 over Premier League champions Manchester City thanks to a late penalty from Kelechi Iheanacho.

Gravity Media was at the heart of the action for English football’s annual curtain raiser, with an onsite team producing the big screens using our outside broadcast truck Pictor. Iheanacho’s heroics, meanwhile, came after he sat down for an interview as part of the main pre-match feature in the preview show Gravity Media’s production team delivers for The FA’s international rights holders.

Based in the UK, Pictor is a multi-functional broadcast vehicle which can fit up to 16 fixed cameras well as comfortably seat a crew of eight. It is an ultra-efficient mobile TV production unit, designed to support both traditional and remote integration/ At-Home workflows. Cutting edge technology combines with an ergonomic working environment, allowing streamlined production teams to create engaging content in day-long comfort.  

Our flexible Production Centre in London offers full live production, whether on-site or as part of a hybrid remote configuration. The facility is ideal for fast-turnaround rolling highlights edits for broadcast or digital, live streams, in-match clips for social and digital, as well as crafted highlights, along with features and traditional post-production.
