Eurovision Sport operates a gender balanced rights portfolio and is committed to working together with our Members to set the highest standards for Women’s Sport. We take this responsibility seriously and we will be taking this commitment further.

Our vision is to normalise women’s sport, to make women’s sport a standard fixture of the sports media landscape. Moving forward will be seeking to drive increased volume and consistent coverage of women’s sport while ensuring a fair portrayal.

To strengthen and focus our commitment in a strategic way we have created a Women’s Sport Expert Group, with participants selected to represent our Membership, in terms of size, geography, gender and expertise.

The group has defined a clear roadmap for the future, focussing its efforts around three main pillars: the strategic, the commercial and the operational.

Key actions for 2019 a member-wide survey to enable us to have a clear picture of what Members are doing and highlighting areas to focus on. Following the gathering and analysis of the survey, the group will meet at the end of the year in order to define its action plan for 2020.
