Australian Football fans are in for a double treat over the next two weekends of the Hyundai A-League with two Saturday night blockbusters to be broadcast on SBS ONE and FOX SPORTS 4.
The Round 5 Brisbane Roar v Melbourne City (8 November) and Round 6 Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory (15 November) matches will be broadcast LIVE on free to air television as the Hyundai A-League continues to penetrate the Australian mainstream.
The two Saturday night clashes, including the biggest rivalry in the Hyundai A-League (Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory), will be broadcast on SBS in addition to the usual Harvey Norman Friday Night Football matches.
“These matches being broadcast on SBS and FOX SPORTS are another significant step forward for football in Australia,” said Football Federation Australia CEO David Gallop. “More and more people are connecting with the Hyundai A-League as football continues to grow and having four of the biggest clubs in the A-League broadcast live on a Saturday night on SBS and FOX SPORTS is great news for football fans.
“I’d like to thank FOX SPORTS and SBS for their support in coming to this arrangement.”
