RTÉ Sport Call For Commissioning Ideas
20 Feb 2017 : Laura Brennan
Closing date for submissions is 12 noon on 27th of March 2017
RTÉ call for ideas of GAA-related programming to complement Live GAA coverage across the Championships.

In brief, RTÉ have said that they want producers to consider what they would enjoy as a GAA fan, match it up with the allocated budget and send it in.

RTÉ Sport is the sole free to air broadcast partner of the GAA for the All-Ireland football and hurling Championships 2017-2021, and is looking for innovative and engaging programming ideas to complement our live coverage.

Budget: Up to €350,000 maximum

Types of programmes which played in this genre over the years include ‘Breaking Ball’, ‘Park Live’, ‘Road to Croker’, ‘The Committee Room’, ‘Championship Matters’ and ‘Thank GAA it's Friday’.

RTÉ have a variety of slots available which can accommodate a number of different options:

  • A mid-week or weekend series during the Championships or
  • A behind-the-scenes mini-series during the Championships or
  • GAA related documentaries which could play in November/December.

RTÉ will pay particular attention to proposals which:

  •  Are truly innovative
  • Make creative use of new or existing presenting talent
  • Demonstrate a full understanding of the unique nature of the national games and their place in the hearts of an Irish audience
  • Come with clear and deliverable 360-degree digital/social plans as part of the proposal.

The successful proposal will broadcast in 2017, and there may be an option of it being re-commissioned for 2018 & 2019.

RTÉ ask, in the first instance, that producers submit ideas into the eCommissioning system under the programme category: Sport "GAA 2017".

Deputy Head of Sport for RTÉ  is Cliona O'Leary.

Closing date for submissions is 12 noon on 27th of March 2017

For more information on the RTÉ Sport call for submission ideas. Please visit the RTÉ Commissioning website.
