Award-winning Waterford content creation company Nemeton TV have secured a three-year contract with Croke Park to operate and create content for the big screens during match days.
The hugely successful company, based in An Rinn, best known for broadcasting over 400 hours of sporting action to a global audience annually, has successfully expanded in recent years to create online and big screen content.
Supplying the screen entertainment in the country’s biggest and best known stadium further cements their reputation as the leading provider of sports content in the country.
Senior Producer with Nemeton TV Fintan Walsh explains what the new contract entails. "We are hugely excited to become such an integral part of the match-day experience, in a venue that is very close to our hearts. Even after all this time, we still get excited pulling up to Croke Park on a match day. Our crews are already there for many big days, sending footage all over the world. Now we will have a creative input into the experience for the 82,000 spectators in the stadium as well.
"We’ll be creating everything from graphics, interviews, action and of course the scoreboard on the biggest sporting days in the Irish calendar. Take All-Ireland Club Final Day on St. Patrick’s Day as an example. We will have two crews in operation – one covering the games for television and online on TG4, and a second delivering an entertaining and exciting package for the supporters in the stadium. It is a natural fit for us. Being right in the middle of the action on what are often historic days for club, county or country is where we want to be."
Congratulating Nemeton TV on the contract, Alan Gallagher, Head of Stadium Operations in Croke Park said: "Fan engagement on match days is very important to us in Croke Park as we pride ourselves on delivering memorable events for supporters both on and off the pitch. We are always looking for dynamic new ways to engage with GAA fans once they are inside the stadium and we’re investing heavily in our stadium technology and digital infrastructure to help further develop fan engagement on event days. We’d like to welcome Nemeton who are no strangers to Croke Park formally on board the Croke Park event day team and we look forward to working with them to deliver really creative, engaging content for our supporters before, during and after every match."
Year on year Nemeton’s reputation grows with award after award coming their way. 2016 was no different and the company ended the year with a big win at the Irish Sport Industry Awards, taking home the coveted title of Best Established Sport Business, while earlier in the year they brought home the gold at the All-Ireland Marketing Awards, walking away with theGnó as Gaeilge Award for the second time.
