Statement: Optus' FIFA World Cup™ coverage

Like all football fans in Australia, FFA has been very disappointed by the technical problems which have so affected the FIFA World Cup coverage by Optus.

Optus’ broadcasting agreement is with FIFA not FFA, but FFA is receiving regular updates from both Optus and SBS to see whether a solution can be found.

Socceroos players thank the fans for their support inside the Kazan Arena.
