New Chairman for ABU Sports Group

The recent 64th Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union Sports Group Conference and Associated meetings saw renewed calls from broadcasters to enhance further cooperation. The conference acknowledged that sports broadcasting continues to evolve, often posing serious challenges to broadcasters in terms of increasing rights fee especially, the premium sports and events. 

The meeting called for the need to work closely with the union, share information and enhance communications. The conference also highlighted the relevance of not just a national pool, but even regional one to help address the challenges and concerns. 

The Conference elected the Head of Sports of KBS Korea, Mr Kimoon Lee as the new Chairman of the ABU Sports Group. Mr Lee, who replaces Mr Jiang Heping, the Controller of the China Global Television Network at CGTN, will serve for a two-year term.  

One of the major highlights of the 64th ABU Sports Group and Associated conference in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan was the signing of the ABU/FISU distribution contract for the next three years. The agreement was signed by the ABU Secretary General, Dr Javad Mottaghi and the Secretary General of the University Sports Federation (FISU) Mr Eric Saintrond. 

The two-day conference in Nur-Sultan also saw presentations by experts in the relevant fields. 

The delegates also witnessed sports events organised by the Kazakhstan national sport federation and the Kazakhstan open international Karate tournament. 

The three day conference was hosted by the QAZSPORTS. The 65th Sports Group Conference and Associated meetings will take place in Tokyo Japan in November on the side-lines of the ABU General Assembly.
