Gaelic Football coming to 7mate
7mate will broadcast all 45 Provincial and All-Ireland championship matches of the Gaelic Athletic Association.
The games to be televised include the All-Ireland finals, semi-finals and quarter finals in both Gaelic football and hurling, along with all six Provincial championship finals.
To air from May to September, Seven’s exclusive deal is reportedly the first time ever an Australian free-to-air network has shown Gaelic matches.
Saul Shtein, head of Seven Network Sport, commented: “There are thousands of Irish ex-pats and people of Irish descent living in Australia, and indeed sports lovers in general, who will be thrilled the number one sport in Ireland will be on the number one free-to-air network in Australia. It’s a big win for Gaelic and sports fans alike.”
