Channel 7 broadcast games announced

The Peter Jackson VFL Grand Final replay between Footscray and Box Hill Hawks will kick off the 2015 VFL TV broadcasts this season on Channel 7.

AFL Victoria has announced the first month of broadcast games for season 2015, with new TV rights partner Channel 7 to feature reigning premiers Footscray unfurling its flag against the Hawks on Saturday April 18 at Victoria University Whitten Oval in Round 1.

Under the new TV rights agreement Channel 7 will show the VFL ‘Match of the Round’ live in Melbourne every weekend at midday throughout the regular season, as well as the VFL Legendairy Finals Series and Grand Final, with the TV schedule to be released on a month by month basis. 

Round 2 will see the first of two Sunday home and away broadcast games for the season, with the traditional ANZAC Day weekend clash between Essendon and Collingwood at Windy Hill.
