The Background

The most memorable and greatest sporting moments in history are centralised within the FIFA Films archive based in Switzerland and serviced by Infront Sports & Media AG, FIFA's exclusive television partner. The FIFA Films Archive includes all televised FIFA World Cup™ matches from 1966-2006 and the FIFA World Cup™ Official Films 1954-2006 produced by some of the world's most talented independent producers together with event footage from FIFAs other unique and celebrated international events such as the FIFA Confederations Cup and the FIFA Women's World Cup.


Rights Restrictions

In some instances FIFA Films may need to insist on varying the terms of your request due to existing contractual restrictions in place with third parties for FIFA World Cup™ and FIFA Additional Events. Such issues will be dealt with on a case by case basis. Please note that such restrictions do not, generally, apply to footage derived from the FIFA World Cup Official Films.

All tapes are sent to clients by international courier.
