Melbourne Community Radio, 94.1FM 3WBC will broadcast AFLW matches from season 7 of Australia’s premier women’s football competition.
The non-profit community radio station will broadcast games throughout the AFLW season with all games featuring the Hawthorn women’s team as they debut in an expanded 18-team competition.
3WBC has been showing the men’s and women’s matches of the Victorian Football League (VFL) since 2008, including the Box Hill Hawks Premiers from 2013 and 2018 and the Hawthorns Women’s Premier from 2018.
station president, Phil Edwardssaid, “AFLW is bringing football back to the suburbs and what better way to hear the games than through people who live and love the game.
“As a community radio station, we give people the opportunity to develop and expand their broadcasting skills and our footy coverage is no different. Every voice you’ll hear on 3WBC comes from a different background. , but what they have in common is a love of the game.”
“With the Box Hill City Oval being located a short distance from 3WBC Studios, covering Hawks games has always been a natural fit for our community radio station. We love bringing stories and events – not just to our local audience but to wider audiences around Melbourne and Australia.
