What if they had a show titled Womens World Football
It runs on Monday.
It goes for 1/2 hour.
And its purpose is:
a) Pulling games out of the archives
b) Reporting on scores around the world
c) Becomes the WNSL show/highlights during the season
d) Showing the Matildas when they play if live coverage is not feasible
I would love to watch the Matildas vs the USA again
And it was good to see SBS pull the Germany and Thailand game out of the archives.
Plus women's football needs regular exposure, so its own segment will be good.
Surely there are enough games in the vault, or that can be obtained, to make 52 shows each year. Or if not, they could even do the 1st half one week, and the second half a week later (very painful for those who don't know the result because they had been living under a rock)
I believe Federation Football Australia need to provide Australia with access to the women's game. At an absolute minimum, this requires the following:
1/ All Matildas games be shown in full, either live or delayed. This does not include warm up matches. Games on weeknights should finish no later than midnight. Games on weekends should finish no later than 2 am.
2/ All Young Matildas games be shown either in full, or a minimum of 1/2 hour highlights per game. The same rules apply above.
3/ All the goals of the WNSL, the table, the fixtures, and other significant events be made accessible in the media, preferably in the form of a 1/2 hour highlights show. Something that ties each game together so that each game is seen as a chapter of the WNSL that becomes a fantastic story, rather than a game that is played with no further attached reason.
It doesn't matter if I am the only one in the galaxy that watches it. The FFA has a duty to ensure the women's game is made accessible to the public.
With the aid of a show called womens world football, the women's game will receive regular exposure (and acceptance), the WNSL will become accessible, and we can closely follow the progress of our idols donning the great green and gold.
