Omg I love Cricket Australia now
Understand your sentiment, but please. CA is nothing but desperate and will put self interest before the game.
Personally, am not so quick to love them.
@MTLCK you need the accompaniment of illustration to go with it then.
It’s a meme.
Since the Cricket Radio Tights deal has been announced now we needx ti wait and see which radio cimmentatirs gi where.
I’m full of anticipation to see where Robin Hood ends up.
It might be a bit of a squeeze to fit him in lol
Crocmedia has has revealed it has secured distribution for A-League coverage into Australia’s five biggest capital cities and will call 100+ matches via Football Nation, its national syndicated brand.
Home and away matches involving Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City will return to 1116 SEN in Melbourne for the season ahead. Home matches of the Western Sydney Wanderers and Adelaide United will run in NSW and SA respectively via Super Radio Network and Adelaide’s FIVEAA.
Home and away Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory matches will air on weekends on Macquarie’s 4BC and 6PR.
With Crocmedia also securing the new 6-year cricket radio rights, It will be interesting to see now SEN and FiveAA juggles its A-League commitments with cricket, especially at night with the soccer clashes with test (third session of the day’s play from Perth and the occasional day/night test), Twenty20 and BBL games.
Not on Mac Sports Radio?
Looking at the recent radio rights deal, the split between Crocmedia and Macquarie are:
Macquarie Sports Radio in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth will cover all men’s and women’s Internationals and every match of the BBL, complemented with Perth 6PR AM broadcasting selected men’s International matches and all Perth Scorcher matches.
SEN in Melbourne will broadcast all Men’s Tests and all BBL matches.
Crocmedia also has non-exclusive rights to test matches in Adelaide (presumably on FiveAA).
Crocmedia will syndicate every men’s BBL match and Macquarie’s coverage of men’s and women’s internationals across regional Australia.
So there will be occasions when SEN’s coverage of test cricket and BBL clashes with A-League games involving Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City. I will expand on this after going through the fixtures.
This is where the posible 2nd SEN Currently classic Rock Radio1377AM comes on the scene 1377 will have every Melbourne Victory & Melbourne City Aleague game both in and out of Melbourne.
You could have asked Chris Giannopoulos from Crocmedia about this?

i called Chris from Crocmedia via his Mobile on my Mobile he told me the Cricket will be on 1116AM while Aleague will be on 1377AM this will be how things will work this time around due to Crocmedia having the rights t. both Cricket and The Aleague. When iI asked him if SEN will broadcast on buth 1116AM & 1377AM he said he could not answer yes on no ti that.
i also ask Chris “Have there been any signings confirmed for crocmedia Cricket”. Chris said The signings will be announced in due time”. i advused him “Crocmedia could sign many of Gerard’s former colleagues at the ABC to join CroMedia Cricket”. Chris siad “That would be a good idea”.
CrankyMedie You missed the boat i already asked Chris Gieonopous that Question at the beginning of our chat we had did you read my earlier comment?
Where does that leave $ydney FC and the mighty Newcastle Jets? Surely you would be stupid to carry Wanderers games into Northern NSW which is the mighty Newcastle Jets’ territory?
Would 1233 ABC Newcastle hold onto Jets rights?
Me? Read your comment? I just re-published it here for the rest of the MediaSpy cohort to read.
What makes you think I didn’t read it? Did you think I might be too busy rolling on the floor in laughter?
It depends if the ABC has paid specifically for rights. The general tone of the release suggests the “Super duper Radio Network” will carry games in NSW.
No mention of Mariners’ games which have been ably covered by the community station. Guessing as per Crocs’ release last year, status quo will continue. I know a couple of struggling Central Coast commercial stations that could do with some waking up to get on board but of course they don’t.
Here is this summer’s international cricket fixture with concurring A-League matches in italics. Due to time difference, the Perth test against India and the day/night Gabba test against Sri Lanka will each clash with an entire round of A-League matches.

Radio stations (especially in regional areas) that carry Crocmedia’s coverage of cricket and A-League will have a big dilemma which sport should be broadcast in full.
I think there would be more interest in the cricket than the soccer in most regional areas.
Hope CrocMedia sign commentators from either TripleM or ABC Radio to their Cricket Commenmtary team. if Crocmedia sign either TripleM or ABC people the other NetWorks people will end up at MacQuarie Sports Radio.
What will happen in Adelaide if Adelaide United and Cricket On Fiveaa, There’s no room on the AM Band As Nova Entertainment May need to put them on Nova 91.9 or Online.
