Qatar 2022: BBC on sharing facilities for its World Cup coverage

The proximity of the Qatar 2022 World Cup stadiums provided the BBC with an opportunity to approach its presentation of the football tournament in a different manner.

Four years ago, the BBC’s coverage of Russia 2018 was anchored from a studio in Moscow, which provided a base for the broadcaster’s presenting talent. Fast forward to Qatar 2022, and because the eight stadiums being used for the World Cup were within a 35-mile radius of Doha, there wasn’t the need for a central studio as the broadcaster’s presenters and pundits were able to travel to each match. However, that presented the BBC – and ITV, with which the BBC shares coverage of the World Cup – with another set of challenges.
