The BBC team will present from a virtual studio at the MediaCityUK facility


Dock10 is to host BBC Sport’s Euros coverage from a virtual studio space at the MediaCityUK, Salford facility.

Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Eilidh Barbour and Mark Chapman will lead the BBC’s team.

Andy Waters, head of studios at dock10, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the BBC Sport team for Euro 2020. Over the last year we have worked closely with the BBC and outside broadcast suppliers to ensure the smooth delivery of live events through our remote gallery solution. Ongoing changes in international travel mean that we need to be really flexible and adapt as production requirements change.

“Our virtual studio capability is now available in all of our studios. This gives our customers the flexibility to choose a space that is the right size for their production rather than being restricted to a single green screen studio. Changing the virtual set with new graphics is one of the key advantages of the system and it is perfect for Euro 2020.”
