UC Championship final livestream

The final game of the UC Championship was held on the 26th August 2017 at Christchurch Boys High School. Tandem Studios continued to provide the final episode of the Social Footy Show but also live-streamed the whole game through the UC Championship & UC Cup Facebook page. The stream, at its peak, was viewed by over 600 people, tuning in from all over the Canterbury District. 

Our 8-person team was a stream lined version of a full live-stream setup, including: 

  • Director
  • Vision Mixer
  • 3 Cameras (2 on each 22-meter line, and 1 on the halfway line) 
  • Floor Manager
  • 2 commentators
  • 1 host of our “social footy show”

It was a huge challenge to pull this together in time for this years final, but after a successful finish, we look forward to live-streaming as many games as possible in next years championship.

The full live-stream includes build up to the game 15 minutes before kick-off with two commentators, hakas and a pre-game interview with a University of Canterbury representative as well as post-game festivities, including the awards ceremony.
