This appointment makes the 2018/19 cup final series the most widely-recorded in our history and will mean that for players, families and friends, footage will be made accessible to relive the exciting day for years to come.
Stockport-based FilmMyMatch, who have worked with Manchester FA for five years and with over 2000 grassroots teams, are one of the fastest growing providers for grassroots sports filming services in the UK. Crews from the innovative provider will attend and shoot every cup final match from the moment the teams walk out of the tunnel, until the prestigious trophy is lifted.
Colin Bridgford, CEO at Manchester FA, explains: “County Cup Finals are the highlight of many teams’ seasons and as a result, we are committed to ensuring that these memorable experiences are captured and can be enjoyed over and over.
Working with FilmMyMatch once again this year will mean that we can share the ups, downs and eventual celebrations of every final with the football community in Greater Manchester across social media channels and website, so that everyone can be part of one of the highlights of the Manchester FA calendar.”
Dave Roe, Director of FilmMyMatch, adds: “Since the 2014/15 season, each cup final series has been more and more exciting and we’re delighted to have been re-appointed.
Manchester FA was one of the first County FA’s we worked with and over the past 5 years, we have been able to improve our service year on year. Scoring a screamer in a cup final is what we all dream of and we’re thrilled to be capturing that for the screen. We cannot wait to again showcase what Manchester has to offer.”
