PRESS RELEASE - The Maurice Revello Tournament and Pitch International sign a new TV broadcasting contract

Festival International Espoirs, the organisers of the Maurice Revello Tournament, are delighted to announce that they have signed a new contract with Pitch International for the international broadcasting rights to the Maurice Revello Tournament.

The Maurice Revello Tournament has become one of the best-known and most respected football events in the world, bringing together every year the men's U-21 national teams of the world's greatest footballing nations.

Pitch International is an industry-leading full-service sports marketing agency that specialises in global media rights, sponsorship sales, event management, content production and their most recent acquisition, Pitchside hospitality, providing world-class and exclusive hospitality, fine dining and luxury travel experiences.

This new agreement runs from 2024 to 2028 and grants Pitch International the international use and sale (outside France) of the broadcasting rights for the 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027 and 2028 editions of the Maurice Revello Tournament. For the same period, Festival International Espoirs, the organisers of the Maurice Revello Tournament, retains the marketing rights to the competition.

The Maurice Revello Tournament is delighted to have renewed its contract with Pitch International for the next five editions. This agreement will ensure the long-term future of the Tournament and guarantee a high standard of competition from the 50th edition, which will take place from 3 to 16 June 2024, with the participation of some of the teams qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The Maurice Revello Tournament Organising Committee also sees this as proof of a strong, loyal and constructive working relationship, and of the trust placed in it by Pitch International, which has supported the organisation of the event since 2013 and enabled the competition to be showcased on all five continents.

For more than ten years, this collaboration has been based on transparency and exchange, enabling the interests of both the Maurice Revello Tournament and Pitch International to be safeguarded.

The Organising Committee would like to warmly thank Paul McGrath, Jon Owen, Anthony Bloch and all the teams at Pitch International for their trust and expertise, which have helped the Maurice Revello Tournament to develop its value and reputation throughout the world.

Alain Revello - President of the Maurice Revello Tournament:

« We are delighted with the signing of this new contract. Since 2013 and the signing of our first contract with Pitch International, our relationship has always been good and has even improved to become excellent in order to offer the Tournament the best possible service. As technology and broadcasting have evolved, the Tournament and Pitch have joined forces to give the competition the best possible exposure.

I'd like to thank Anthony Bloch and his team, who have done everything possible over the years to make our partnership work. The Tournament is a competition that continues to be broadcast worldwide thanks to Pitch International, which distributes a tournament that is part of world football's heritage. We are delighted and grateful that this contract will strengthen the quality of the competition over the coming years. »

Anthony Bloch - Director of Events and Football Services

« We are excited to extend our long-standing relationship with Festival International Espoirs and the Maurice Revello Tournament.

It is a privilege for Pitch to be involved in a Tournament which provides such a unique and unrivalled platform for inter-confederation youth football at the highest level which plays a critical role in the future development for national team football and players across the global stage.

Pitch is proud to be an integral part of the organisation and delivery of the Tournament and looks forward to future years of collaboration and success.

We would like to thank Alain Revello and everyone at Festival International Espoirs as we embrace and build on our strong partnership. »
