Channel Nine will add yet another AFL football show to its stable with TAC Cup Future Stars focusing on the under-age football competition, the TAC Cup. It will feature a mix of game highlights, interviews and analysis of the top prospects coming through the AFL system.
Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission, which previously sponsored the summer factual series Sudden Impact, has joined up as a major sponsor.
The program will be hosted by Craig Hutchison, whose production company, Crocmedia, is also behind the project. Panellists will include former Hawthorn forward Ben Dixon and the AFL’s “youth guru”, Kevin Sheehan. Sports broadcaster Angela Pippos will report from the field.
“The TAC Cup has been creating champions on the field and safer drivers on the road for the last 18 years. This show will be a great addition to Channel Nine’s footy lineup. This is also a great opportunity to showcase tomorrow’s stars while promoting safe driving messages for young drivers,” Hutchison said.
It premieres Sunday, May 10 at 1.00pm on Nine (states to be confirmed).
