AGENCY OF THE YEAR – OVER 80 EMPLOYEES
ArqamFC is a media sports hub that caters to some of if not the biggest clients in world football, the likes of CAF, AFC, and FIFA being on our list of clients.
We’ve gone from a social media sports company to an all-encompassing sports hub in a concise span of time and last year was our chance to prosper and expand upon our horizons by taking on more projects, covering more tournaments, registering new records, and writing chapter upon a chapter in our company history. The first-ever Women’s African Champions League, the FIFA Arab Cup, The FIFA Club World Cup, and the CAF Africa Cup of Nations; we covered each of these competitions!
We set new milestones by registering new digital records during the Africa Cup of Nations, covered the first ever CAFWCL and provided the women’s game in Africa with the proper exposure, produced 15+ films, series, video editorials, and documentaries for FIFA, broadened our production capabilities as a while with KSA based web-show YallaGoal, and shot multiple projects in 4 different continents despite travel restrictions.
We’ve had an incredibly successful year, and more awaits us on the horizon!
