Global Eagle Signs Licensing Agreement with ICC

Posted by Michelle Howard

Global Eagle Entertainment announced it has entered into an agreement with the International Cricket Council (ICC) to offer telecasts of major events to commercial flights and cruise ships through its global VSAT networks.
The ICC has granted GEE worldwide rights to provide 1,140 hours of live cricket programming over a four-year period, from 2016-2019. The 2017 Champions Trophy and 2019 Cricket World Cup are among the 172 important events to be offered.
Today's announcement builds on GEE's growing portfolio of sporting events agreements. Last year, the company signed separate global distribution contracts with Lagardère Sports and Premiership Rugby to broadcast telecasts of their popular sporting events.
The ICC is the global governing body for cricket. Representing 105 members, the ICC governs and administrates the game and is responsible for the staging of major international tournaments including the ICC World Cup and Women's World Cup, ICC Champions Trophy and the ICC Men's and Women's World T20.
The ICC presides over the ICC Code of Conduct and appoints the umpires and referees who officiate at all sanctioned Test matches, One Day International and Twenty20 Internationals. The ICC Development department works with associate and affiliate members to improve the quality of international cricket, build better cricket systems, get more people playing cricket and grow the game.
