ABC HD will dabble with a bit of multichanneling when it screens the 2009 Victorian Football League Grand Final live across the nation on Friday, September 25th from 7pm.
Victorian viewers will see a full replay on ABC1 for Victorian viewers from 10pm.
Highlights of the state-based league will also screen in Victoria on ABC1 between 12-noon and 2pm on Saturday, September 26th.
Head of ABC TV Sports & Events, Justin Holdforth, said “It will be the first time the VFL Grand Final has been telecast in high definition and footy fans are in for a visual feast,” he said.
“The VFL is the State’s oldest football competition and the VFL Grand Final, to be played under lights at Docklands Stadium, will be a magnificent prelude to the AFL Grand Final on Saturday afternoon.”
