South Melbourne Soccer Club fans can now get an in-depth understanding of the team and its performances through a new one hour television show that will commence this Friday 30th January from 9.00pm.
The South Melbourne Show will run for an hour each Friday night through a prime time show dedicated to the South Melbourne Soccer Club.
The show will feature match highlights, player and coach interviews, post match media conferences, competitions and junior, women’s and community segments. The program will be produced by the Greek Media Network in a deal that not only includes production, but also includes the provision of air-time on the Channel 31 Network.
This initiative by South again proves the tireless backstage efforts of the club in ensuring that our strategic and marketing plans are representative of what is required for entry into the new league. South Melbourne is the only NSL club to air their own dedicated soccer show.
South Chief Executive Mark Patterson believes the show will not only be informative for South’s thousands of fans it will assist in the exposure and development of soccer in Victoria. “This is a great initiative that we are confident will drive additional support for the team and increase the profile of its star players and soccer in general” he said.
