FIVEaa secures footy broadcasts on the AM band

FIVEaa Adelaide has won the rights to continue to broadcast AFL matches until 2022 as part of a six-year partnership agreement.
AFL Chief Executive Officer Gillon McLachlan said FIVEaa was an integral part of AFL coverage with its commitment to the SA teams, and the wider AFL competition.
“FIVEaa lives and breathes AFL coverage and is a key partner for us in the future of AFL footy in South Australia,” Mr. McLachlan said.
“Their team is enthusiastic and passionate, and a great part of the life of this game. FIVEaa can proudly claim to have broadcast every match played by both the Adelaide Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club since both teams joined the competition – pre-season games and home and away matches and finals.
“I’d like to thank General Manager Neil O’Reilly and his team for their amazing support of us and for their great broadcasting of Australia’s leading national code.”
Neil O’Reilly, FIVEaa General Manager said, “We’re thrilled to be able to continue our partnership with the AFL and bring the Adelaide audience a local and passionate call for all Power and Crows games for another six years.” 
FIVEaa has been broadcasting AFL matches in Adelaide for over 25 years and has covered every Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Power game live since the clubs entered the AFL competition.
The FIVEaa commentary team features a line-up of past players and media personalities including Stephen Rowe, Mark Bickley, Kane Cornes, Kym Dillon, Tim Ginever and David Wildy.

The AFL has also renewed a deal with the Triple M Network to broadcast games on the FM band.
