Message from Thomas Mitchell (producer working with Optus)
My name is Thomas Mitchell and I’m a producer working with Optus on their coverage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Optus will be broadcasting all the games to a national TV audience.
The tournament starts in mid-June and before that we’re looking to reach out to expat communities in Sydney to find out where fans might be watching the game.
Ideally what we’re hoping to do is identify where these locations may be and send a reporter out to broadcast LIVE from that location during the match.
I was hoping that you might be able to point me in the right direction or put me in touch with the right people in the RUSSIAN community in order to get some conversations happening about their plans for the World Cup!
The opening match of the tournament sees Russia play Saudi Arabia on Thursday 14th June.
We’d love to figure out where Sydney’s Russian community might get together and watch the team during the WC and Optus would love to work together during the tournament.
Really appreciate your help and would love to chat about this further during the week.
