Live free-to-air feast for A-League fans

The A-League Big Blue between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory is one of two Saturday blockbusters to be screened live on SBS as football continues to ramp up its free-to-air presence.

Australian football fans are in for a double treat over the next fortnight with two extra fixtures to be broadcast on SBS ONE HD in addition to FOX SPORTS 4HD and 4.

The round five Brisbane Roar v Melbourne City clash (November 8) and round six Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory (November 15) match will both be broadcast live on FTA

The two games, including the biggest rivalry in the A-League history between the Sky Blues and Victory, will be added to  the usual Friday night matches on SBS.

Football Federation Australia boss David Gallop said: “These matches being broadcast on SBS and FOX SPORTS are another significant step forward for football in Australia.

“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.”
