Football West secures NPL broadcast deal

Football West have announced a deal to live stream all senior and under-20 matches from the National Premier Leagues WA competition until the end of the 2021 season.

The landmark deal will see Football West broadcast 12 matches each weekend throughout the NPL WA season on their Facebook and YouTube channels.

The Belt Up Cup Final and all of the NPL Top Four Cup matches will also be live streamed, while a highlights package from the previous weekend’s matches will be available.

Football West head of member services Alex Novatsis hailed the deal, which begins this weekend.

“The NPL WA is the elite competition in the state and we are excited that every match will be available for supporters to view, should they not be able to get to a venue,” he said.

This is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase the cream of the WA game and for clubs to increase their presence with the sporting public.

“We have already been live streaming two first team and two under-20 games each weekend and the feedback we have received has been terrific. People are very positive about the product on the field and the way it is being presented.”

The deal means there will be 120 more NPL WA senior and under-20 matches broadcast live this season, and 264 games in both 2020 and 2021.
