This afternoon, Football Federation Victoria confirmed a new broadcast deal for men’s and women’s Playstation 4 National Premier Leagues Victoria competitions.
The deal will include a feature game per week, with the possibility to increase matches broadcast per week with consultations between clubs and the FFV.
Partnering with FLIP TV, the FFV believe that the deal will continue to grow the game at a local level, as they collaborate with an “innovative, ambitious company that is determined to invest both financial and human resources into the promotion and growth of the game broadly.”
A magazine style show is also being tabled, and the ability for FLIP TV to broadcast rolling highlights of club’s archived matches from the past.
More details from the FFV below:
– Terms of the agreement are to the conclusion of the 2017 season
– Sportscast Australia will be production company filming matches each week. At this stage we anticipate each match will be a three-camera operation – stock close, stock wide, and roving camera – for an example of how this would look see the 2016 NPL Grand Final, South Melbourne v Oakleigh Cannons live stream.
– Previous arrangements for FFV to stream games on Facebook without charge will continue as planned, specifically the PlayStation 4 NPL Victoria men’s and women’s grand finals, Dockerty Cup and Team App Cup finals, and all four Westfield FFA Cup Round 7 matches.
– Existing club agreements to live stream matches may continue, however may coincide with the designated Flip TV match in any given week.
– Set-top box cost is $79, with $15 postage. PlayStation 4 NPL Victoria and NPL Victoria women’s matches will be carried at no additional subscriber cost.
– The weekly feature game will start on Monday April 3 with Kingston City v Bentleigh Greens at the Grange Reserve.
