The 2021 Challenge Cup Final was the 120th final of rugby league’s Challenge Cup knock-out competition. This was our lead producer’s third year in a row producing the headline competition final with the Sports Presentation team.
The triple-header day involved the Schools Final, The 1895 Cup Final and The Challenge Cup Final all kicking off on the Wembley turf. Our team took control of the venue screens, LED boards, full audio stings, live singers from choirs and superstar anthem singers and the pyrotechnics.
Our carefully scripted opening ceremony complete with pitch banners, trophy walk-outs and special effects all timed to perfection allowed the BBC directors to really show the global audience this iconic sporting occosion.
