Meet the women helping to produce ESPN’s coverage of UEFA Euro 2016

EURO 2016 quarterfinals slate on ESPN platforms

ESPN’s presentation of the quadrennial European football championship continues today through Sunday with the quarterfinals. Coverage begins at 2:30 p.m. ET daily.

A unique aspect of ESPN’s production team for the UEFA EURO 2016 is the number of women in key behind-the-camera leadership positions.

Producer Beth Chappell’s first soccer event at ESPN was as a feature producer during the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Coordinating producer Gisela Leyva brought 11 straight years of overseeing ESPN Deportes coverage of UEFA Champions League Finals to the EURO 2016 production leadership team.

“We assembled the production crew for this event based on their work ethic, experience with international soccer events, team chemistry, and an unwavering commitment to bringing this event to the viewers at the highest production level,” said Amy Rosenfeld, Senior Coordinating Producer, and the team leader.
