SBS VICELAND will exclusively broadcast both blockbuster matches of the 2017 Arsenal In Sydney tour from ANZ Stadium around the country live, free and in HD next week.
Both games – featuring Premier League giants Arsenal FC taking on Sydney A-League teams – will also be simulcast in Australia via The World Gamewebsite, The World Game app, and on SBS On Demand.
SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp, said: “We are pleased to be presenting the broadcast of the Arsenal In Sydney games live, free and in HD on SBS VICELAND next week.
“Television audiences will have a brilliant opportunity see our top Australian sides go head to head with one of Europe’s truly great clubs as they are treated to expert analysis and commentary from SBS’s football specialists including Craig Foster, David Basheer and Craig Moore.
“We’re incredibly passionate and proud about our football heritage. SBS has been in the football business for over 30 years and we believe that football is a sport that truly reflects our unique Charter by connecting Australia’s diverse communities.”
It’s a perfect match: with the Premier League season less than six weeks away, it’s a great chance for football fans to see how Arsenal are shaping up for the competition.
VenuesLive General Manager Business Development, Greg Sleigh, said: “We’re delighted to partner with SBS in the knowledge that the match will be broadcast free to air into every household in Australia. SBS has a proud record as a long term Australian broadcaster of the world’s biggest football events and is the perfect partner to deliver the Arsenal broadcast throughout Australia.”
