First Look: ESPN World Cup studio

2010 -- FIFA World Cup

Here’s a first look at ESPN’s setup for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Located inside the International Broadcast Center, ESPN’s  studio includes four distinct areas – an anchor desk overlooking Soccer City Stadium; a side set for interviews; a 16-foot by nine-foot LED wall for stand-ups; and an outside patio.

The studio measures approximately 40 feet by 40 feet with the base 25 feet in the air. Actual photos after the jump.

    I absolutely love this studio! It shows class, respect for the african host country and it displays wonderful colors. Very nice ESPN!

    The desk seems a little bit…odd for some reason. Maybe it’ because of the big sign thing on front saying it’s the world cup. And the actual photo of the LED screen. For it being 16ft X 9ft, it sure seems square. But perhaps it is just the angle. Overall I think it’s nice.

      The odd screen is just temporary, they have removed it and there is a plasma there.
