6PR has secured radio, streaming and digital rights to the AFL until 2024.
The two year deal will see Perth’s No. 1 talk station call up to four matches per week, available to listeners on 6PR 882, and for the first time through the 6PR app and website.
The agreement includes:
· 4 matches per week, as picked by 6PR
· All marquee games
· All finals and the Grand Final
· AFLW rights including a commitment for 1 x AFLW broadcast per round, Finals and the Grand Final
· An AFLW internship to foster media talent among the playing group
· Associated digital and streaming rights
The new deal marks the end of 6PR’s rights agreement with SEN, and ensures the only place to hear the biggest names and best opinions in footy – or advertise with them – is directly through 6PR 882 – the home of football.
Tom Malone, Managing Director of Nine Radio, said: “Our listeners are the big winners in this new deal. It means that Perth will have access to 6PR’s unrivalled commentary right through until the 2024 season. Importantly, the agreement incorporates full streaming rights, giving fans the ability to tune into 6PR no matter where they are in Australia. We’re also very proud to be increasing our support for the AFLW by calling more matches and implementing our groundbreaking broadcast internship program.”
Emily White, 6PR Content Manager, said: “Perth is a footy town and 6PR is again thrilled to call the AFL games that matter to the WA audience over the next couple of years. Our coverage of the Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles brings next-level analysis and insight and how good will it be, to sit in Optus Stadium and listen to the best commentators in town through the 6PR app.”
