End of an era for ABC broadcasts

From the official VFL website AFL Victoria has been advised by ABC Television that it cannot provide a firm commitment to broadcast the 2015 Peter Jackson VFL season. “ABC TV is unable to commit to the broadcast of the VFL in 2015 and beyond,” ABC Television Head of TV Sport & Events Justin Holdforth said. “The ABC fully understands the necessity for AFL Victoria to pursue any opportunities to broadcast VFL games next year should they be available.” AFL Victoria General Manager Steven Reaper said that the VFL competition was extremely grateful for ABC’s outstanding coverage for more than 27 years and thanked them for their long-term support of the VFL and, in fact, State League football around Australia. “On behalf of the Peter Jackson VFL competition and clubs, I would like to thank the ABC for broadcasting the VFL since 1987, when they first telecast the finals. “The production and coverage has been outstanding and highly valued by the VFA/VFL community,” Reaper said. “With the support of the AFL, AFL Victoria will be exploring other opportunities to achieve coverage of the VFL competition going forward.”
