Kane Washington, GM of Sport - Product and Consumer Experience at Telstra said,” We are thrilled to finally see the Hyundai A-League make its debut on our network this weekend, and expect the addition of the world game to really appeal to our customers.
“With thanks to Foxtel and the FFA, the A-League is now a key component of our sports portfolio.”
“Telstra is the home of live Australian sport on-the-go, with 2.3 million fans already streaming sport through our other Live Passes on our brilliant network, a number we expect will grow further throughout the A-League season.” said Mr Washington
Football Federation Australia Chief Executive Officer David Gallop AM said this season promised to be one of the most exciting for many years.
“We’ve got new marquee players in both the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League, in Keisuke Honda and Samantha Kerr, as well as some of Australia’s best footballers coming back to Australia to strengthen our competition.
“Our partnership with Telstra means more fans will be able to experience both the Hyundai A-League and the Westfield W-League than ever before whenever and wherever they want,” said Mr Gallop.
