Melburnians to watch AFL clash live

Sports fans in Melbourne will be able to watch Saturday’s crucial AFL game live after the league gave permission to Ten to show it.  

The local derby Collingwood v Geelong  Preliminary Final will see Ten’s coverage begin at 7pm in Melbourne.

David White, Network Ten’s General Manager of Sport said:  “We are very pleased with this result and delighted to offer the fans what they wanted. This is a win for all AFL fans whether they are watching at the ground or at home.”

There have been ongoing tensions between Ten and the AFL over it being allowed live coverage, which the league fears can impact on ticket sales.
