3WBC is proud to announce that we will be broadcasting AFLW season 7 games this season.
3WBC has broadcast Victorian Football League (VFL) men’s and women’s games since 2008 including the Box Hill Hawks premierships in 2013 and 2018 and the Hawthorn women’s premiership in 2018.
“AFLW is bringing footy back to the suburbs and what better way to listen to the games than through a local community station that already has a close connection with the Hawks over a number of years,” 3WBC president Phil Edwards said.
“Our passionate team of callers are grateful to the AFL for its support of 3WBC’s request to provide coverage of the AFLW competition to local audiences – reflecting the grass roots nature of the game.
“As a community radio station, we give opportunities for people to develop and expand their broadcasting skills and our footy coverage is no different. Every voice you will hear on 3WBC comes from a different background, but what they do have in common is a love for the game.
“We are excited to kick off the season at Marvel Stadium on August 27th before moving to suburban grounds for the rest of the season.”
“With a number of Hawthorn AFLW (and Box Hill VFL) matches being held at the Box Hill City Oval, it’s only a short distance from 3WBC studios, So covering Hawks games has always been a natural fit for our community radio station. We love bringing these stories and events – not only to our local audience – but to a wider audience around Melbourne and Australia.”
3WBC AFLW broadcasts will be produced for local audiences, with all commentators/callers volunteers.
The station will broadcast all games involving Hawthorn that are played in Greater Melbourne, and will be available to listeners on 94.1FM in Melbourne, via the station website 3wbc.org.au or via the AFLW website and mobile app.
