AELTC Launches Wimbledon Live
Friday, 2 June, 2006

The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) has announced the launch of a brand-new service, Wimbledon Live, with live and on demand video coverage of the 2006 Wimbledon Championships through the official website

For the first time, tennis fans in the majority of markets world-wide will be able to watch daily live coverage on selected Wimbledon show courts, including Centre and No. 1 Courts, via a special video and audio subscription service.

In addition, fans will also be able to access the rich history of the world's premier tennis tournament where a selection of archive material and all Wimbledon's 2006 televised matches will be available on-demand.

Radio Wimbledon will also be streamed, free, on Wimbledon Live. This service will provide three distinct feeds - Radio Wimbledon, and commentary from Centre Court and No.1 Court.

The Club has worked closely with its partner IMG Media to develop and implement these initiatives.

Ian Ritchie, the All England Club's Chief Executive, said: "We pride ourselves on being traditional yet forward-thinking and have always embraced opportunities to extend the coverage of The Championships to the widest possible audience. Our new services will deliver live Championships action around the world through a variety of platforms."

The new service has been developed with Mediazone and integrated into the club's official website. Michelle Wu, CEO of Mediazone, said, "This is a truly unique and ground-breaking new media initiative. By working closely with the AELTC, IMG Media and IBM, we are able to offer a truly comprehensive live and on-demand offering to Wimbledon's millions of fans around the world".

IBM is the operator of the official Wimbledon website,, and the Club's Official Supplier of IT and Consultancy. IBM will provide comprehensive content to on-line audiences, which will include live scoring, point-tracker, as well the opportunity to visit the online shop.

The Club is also making live and on-demand coverage of The Championships available to selected mobile phone operators in the UK and around the world. For the first time, mobile phone users will have access to live match play.

In addition, UK users will also be able to view the BBCi's broadcast live on the BBC website. Visitors to BBC Sport's Wimbledon website - - will also get access to the tennis at Wimbledon 2006 with live news, scores and results.

They will also be able to watch BBCi's simulcast of up to five courts of live tennis action on the website and listen to BBC Radio Five Live for the latest news. Live and exclusive coverage of the 2006 Championships begins on BBC TWO on Monday 26 June at 12:00 Noon.

Barbara Slater, BBC Head of General Sports, said: "This is an exciting opportunity that will ensure Wimbledon reaches an even wider audience. The live streaming coverage will make one of the biggest sporting events in the world available to broadband users in the UK, wherever they are, at home or in the office, so they never have to miss a game."

Simon Mayo and Clare Balding host daily coverage of Wimbledon and the World Cup from 1230 BST.

Former doubles stars Leander Paes and Todd Woodbridge join the commentary team, which also includes Michael Stich, Pat Cash and Andy Murray's mum Judy.

John McEnroe will present the phone-in show Six-Love-Six on Wednesday 28 June and Thursday 6 July. And as soon as there is a rain break, Five Live plans to take over Centre Court and host a live forum allowing the crowd to grill the experts.

now that will be something to hear
they will just have to get questions from the people who camped out, rest of them wont have a clue.
