Crocmedia: Female Footy Live
All 10 exhibition matches of women’s AFL football will go out across the country in 2016 exclusively by Crocmedia.
Female Footy Live from Crocmedia will feature some of Australia’s best female footballers and identities. Current captain of the Melbourne FC women’s team Daisy Pearce will headline the broadcast, alongside prominent VAFA play-by-play caller Jo Wotton. The broadcast will also be strengthened by Chris Connolly, a pioneer of women’s football through his previous involvement at the Melbourne Football Club. Also joining the broadcast is Craig Starcevich – the current coach of the Western Bulldogs women’s team.
Crocmedia General Manager Jodie Simm said the broadcast commitment was part of a broader women’s AFL strategy across the business.
“We are incredibly excited and enthused about playing a role in the unbelievable growth of women’s football in Australia. It is clear that the depth of talent and interest in the sport is growing rapidly and we can’t wait to describe all of the action in 2016
