Channel Seven to broadcast Matildas Olympic qualifiers
February 1, 2016

Channel Seven has signed an agreement with Football Federation Australia to broadcast the Matildas 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics qualifiers from Japan.

The Matildas first qualification match against the host nation Japan on 29th February will be broadcast live on digital channel 7mate and streamed on the network’s on-demand app Plus7.

The Matildas will also play Vietnam (2nd March), Korea Republic (4th March), North Korea (7th March) and China (9th March) with the top two teams advancing to represent the Asian Football Confederation at the 2016 Olympics.

Announcing the broadcast deal, FFA Chief Executive David Gallop stated “this broadcast agreement with the Seven Network is a breakthrough moment for women’s football and due recognition to the deeds of the Matildas at last year’s World Cup.

“FFA is committed to growing women’s football and this is a pleasing sign that the long term strategy we have been undertaking over the last two years with women’s football is starting to bear fruit.

“Over the last two years we have invested a significant amount of resources into women’s football, in particular the Matildas program, and following the on field success at the World Cup, this is a positive sign that we are making headway off the field.”

Seven West Media Chief Executive Tim Worner added “Seven is proud to be bringing the next chapter of Matildas story to all Australians and we’ll be doing that live on any screen.”
