Magic v Strikers live and commercial free on the ABC

The match between Broadmeadow Magic and Brisbane Strikers on the opening night of the Westfield FFA Cup will be called live and commercial free on 1233 ABC Newcastle.

1233’s Grandstand team of Aaron Kearney, Phil Dando and Craig Hamilton will bring you all the action from Wanderers Oval (Magic Park) in Broadmeadow as Northern NSW Football NPL side Broadmeadow Magic hosts NSL champions Brisbane Strikers on Tuesday July 29 2014.

1233’s Local Content Manager Phil Ashley-Brown says it’s fitting that 1233 is there for this historic game.

“Aaron Kearney and Phil Dando have been calling the A-League since the inception of the Newcastle Jets and have built a massive following locally and internationally via our web stream,” Ashley-Brown said.

“It’s likely the FFA Cup will build an enormous following around Australia and 1233 is determined to give our audience the opportunity to be there from the start, just like we did with our very first A-League calls.”

“This new competition has been wildly anticipated by fans and Aaron and Phil’s calls will help to increase the profile of the FFA Cup and the sport both locally and around the world.”

“Craig Hamilton will join Aaron and Phil on sideline bringing his enormous skill, wit and experience from NRL calls to the round ball game.”

The game will be called live and commercial free from 7:15pm AEST on 1233 ABC Newcastle, at or on the 1233 ABC Radio App.

1233’s coverage of the FFA Cup will continue on Tuesday August 5th when Perth Glory meet the Newcastle Jets at Magic Park.
