League counts to be live streamed

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Sport -

His­tory will be made on Mon­day night with the Pi­cola District Foot­ball Net­ball League vote count be­ing streamed live.

McPher­son Me­dia Group will broad­cast the South East awards cer­e­mony in a first for foot­ball and net­ball in the re­gion.

The vote count will be avail­able to watch from 7.15pm at www.shep­p­news.com.au, with the se­niors, re­serves, A-grade net­ball, B-grade, C-grade and C-Re­serve’s medals up for grabs.

It will be the start of an on­line sport­ing bo­nanza in September, with the Mur­ray League’s medal count get­ting the same treat­ment.

But it will not just be the pre­sen­ta­tion nights that will be shown on­line, with the PDFL’s north-west and south-east grand finals also avail­able to watch.

The south-east grand fi­nal will be at Katan­dra on September 16, with the semi-finals tak­ing place this week­end.

MMG manag­ing direc­tor Damian Trezise said he was look­ing for­ward to de­liv­er­ing foot­ball cov­er­age to those who can­not at­tend the vote counts and grand finals.

‘‘We think it’s an in­no­va­tive way to pro­file the PDFNL by live-stream­ing both the vote counts and grand finals,’’ Trezise said.

‘‘We’ve al­ways been in­ter­ested in ex­pand­ing our foot­ball cov­er­age out­side of just print and this is a great way to do it.

‘‘Not every­one can get to a vote count, so it’s ex­cit­ing to be able to show­case all leagues to a big­ger au­di­ence.’’

Shep­par­ton News’ ded­i­cated team of sports jour­nal­ists, Oliver Caf­frey, Lau­ren Bordin, Tyler Ma­her and Adem Barolli will be in­volved in the cov­er­age, along with Shep­par­ton News Footy Show hosts David Fox and John ‘‘JR’’ Ryan.

Live stream­ing sched­ule; PDFL south-east vote count - September 11, PDFL south-east grand fi­nal - September 16, MFL vote count - September 17.
