APFCA statement regarding broadcast deal

20 Dec 2016

APFCA members received a briefing today from Steven Lowy and David Gallop on the FFA broadcast rights sale to Fox. Regrettably the APFCA have not been directly involved in the negotiations and therefore are not in a position to comment on the outcomes.

In the interest of Australian Football at large, the focus of the APFCA remains on the viability of the clubs and the league and therefore on seeking appropriate distribution of the revenues that the Hyundai A-League generates.

Following the announcement of the broadcast rights sale the APFCA has sought immediate assurances from the FFA regarding the future distributions and associated financial models required to ensure the sustainable financial health of the League and its Clubs.
