Sydney FC v Chelsea to be broadcast free-to-air

The blockbuster match between Sydney FC and English Premier League giants Chelsea on June 2 will be shown free-to-air with the Seven Network securing the broadcast rights.

Football Federation Australia confirmed that the glamour clash at ANZ Stadium, between the EPL champions elect and two-time A-League champions, will be shown nationally live and exclusive on 7Mate at 8pm.

Kick-off is at 8pm and coverage will start from 7pm, completing a high profile showcase of the A-League with Sydney’s match against Tottenham on May 30 also broadcast live on the Seven Network.

FFA chief David Gallop said:“Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in world football and they will take on a Sydney FC team that is right in the hunt to be crowned 2015 Champions.

"It is a great opportunity to showcase the Hyundai A-League on national free-to-air television.

"The Seven Network has shown its appetite for football with broadcasts of the Melbourne Victory v Liverpool clash and the last two All-Stars matches against Manchester United and Juventus and this is a further step towards the mainstream for Australian football.”
