The Hyundai A-League soccer is returning to 1116 SEN after a brief hiatus.
Crocmedia’s Football Nation call will make its 2017/2018 season debut this Saturday night for the Melbourne Victory versus Perth Glory clash at AAMI Park.
The Adelaide United versus Sydney FC match will air the next night.
A regular slate of Victory and Melbourne City matches will follow in the coming weeks as well as other marquee matches.
Former greats such as Archie Thompson, Clint Bolton and Josh Kennedy will be among those heard on 1116 SEN during the Football Nation coverage.
Josh Kennedy, who carved out a long and distinguished career in Germany, Japan and of course the Socceroos, is thrilled to join the Football Nation team: “The standard of football we have already seen in the A-League this season has risen from previous years. The foreigners coming in have been very impressive, so to be joining Football Nation and to help deliver these games into people’s homes, cars and offices is brilliant and I’m looking forward to seeing all 10 sides battle it out for a spot come finals time.”
Executive director Crocmedia, Chris Giannopoulos says the return of Hyundai A-League to 116 SEN will be welcomed by devoted football fans in Melbourne.
“We’ve had incredible support from City and Victory in Melbourne and it is great to expose their premiership campaigns more broadly into Melbourne.
“On the back of great coverage into 6PR, FiveAA, 4BC, the Super Radio Network and foxsports.com.au, our first year as master radio rights holder is connecting fans more deeply than ever to the world game,” he added. Crocmedia secured the exclusive FFA commercial radio rights in a landmark six-year deal in 2017. The first commercial radio deal for FFA, the agreement reflects the continued growth of football in Australia and growing consumption of FFA content, including the two national leagues and national teams.”
Football Nation is also streamed online via www.a-league.com.au as well as www.myfootballnation.com.
